W from Brisneyland sent me this video, which I found rather droll. It is not safe for work.

I found that video deeply disturbing. Fuck that guy. He can't tell me what to do. I like the sound of women laughing.

There is such a thing as a blackberry margarita, and it is fabulous, although I could do without the seeds.

I'm a fan of their shoes.

Besides, you don't order water with your drink.

You order iced tea. Fucking idiots. Sheesh.

You forgot the words "Long Island" at the start of that drink order. Or is that just assumed these days?

I honestly don't know what this ad/sketch is trying to say. If you follow the edicts set down by this loud mouth then everyone in the bar has a bad night. Look at the punters around him. Everyone of them looks miserable. I'm surprised the last rule of drinking wasn't "Stop being a douche and let people enjoy themselves as they see fit".

w from brisbane has opinions thus...

"I honestly don't know what the ad/sketch is trying to say."

Dear TheWah,
Let me try to explain, from a semi-retired barfly's perspective.

While it is a piece of comic exaggeration, it is making some reasonable points. It is really about being respectful and considerate.

The 'make a triangle' advice is exactly right. The seating arrangements should be inclusive. No one should feel ostracised.

The general drink ordering stuff is really referring to when it is crowded. When the bar is quiet, feel free to treat the bar person as your personal drink consultant. But when it is busy and a lot of people are just wanting for a quick drink under some time pressure; then know your drink and keep it simple, until the crowd thins out.

The women laughing thing is weird, meant to be provocative I suppose. All laughter is welcome, except for the sadistic laughter of your torturer, I suppose. But, people in quiet bars who talk unnecessarily loudly are annoying. Just like people on the bus or the train who think their conversation is so awesome the whole carriage should hear. It isn't, particularly if it is full of vulgarisms. Don't shout.

So it is really about being respectful and considerate.

Needless to say, order a water or a wine if that is your preference. I do both regularly. But ,I think, the clip is a humourously exaggerated way of making some fair points.

Dear me, people do overcomplicate what to do in pubs. There's one simple rule:


"Don't be a rat farting dickhead."
