Latch Deadbolt (bard to those who choose to suffer)

[tall, derisively handsome stranger enters (hey, it's my turn) and ignores everybody but the landlord]

I'm achin' for a pint, Mate, and I'd be happy to play a tune in exchange for a tall one...

[stranger looks around, hops over the bar, finds a glass on the shelf, and leans into the draught handle]

So far, I like this place very, very much.

[barmaid says:]
Well, I meant... since there's no-one about, if there was something I COULD DO FOR YOU...

[stranger says:]

Well, if we really are alone here, you really could do something for me, sweetheart. Could you turn off that bloody machine in the corner that makes so much noise I canna hear the bloody match?!!

[barmaid pouts..]
Yes, I can do that, if that's all you want. [complies]

[stranger smiles, reaches into his trousers, and drags forth a length of battered pipe]

Lady, you have made my day. Allow me to play a you a tune on my flute in way of thanks.

[he begins to play]

[largish men, hitherto unnoticed, arise from the public house furniture and begin to utter sounds of pain]

What in 'ell is that racket? Begone, ye dog of 'ell! [they say]

[the largish men grasp the stranger and project him bodily outwards from the front door of the P.H. He is later discovered by friends, his flute nowhere to be seen. They later find it shoved up his... sleeve.]

*considers whacking Menza on the back to stop him spluttering but settles for a gentle pat instead*
To make you feel more at home I could start singing and talking about cake? But it is quite worrying, maybe I should just revert to saying thank you and grinningsmiley - smiley
