|THE WINDOW OF 'THE STRAWBERRY'|
Toon pub openin' times for the 'high noon' derby next Sunday have been annoonced, with the forst boozer not openin' til 'NINE am BELLS!', nameleee 'The Strawberry'
This iz a 'disgraceful' state of affairs when yoo consider that 'in the old days', waaterin' holes like 'The Black 'N' White' in Blenheim Street (both 'boozer' and 'street' lang since demolished!) used to open at!---"wait for it!"-----'SIX BELLS' IN THE MORNIN' for the 'thorst quenchers' on derby day!
Aa remember a derby match in the 1980's when the game kicked off at '11:30 bells' in the mornin' and aa tried waalkin into 'The Black 'N' White' through the 'lock in door' at the ungodly hour of '7 bells'!
The bar was SO packed that aa couldn't get through the f***** door!---az there were SO many people inside 'gaggin' for a drink!
Now they divvint open til fower hours later than this!---wots the world comin' te---aa ask meesel!???
