WHERE IS DOT?

Smashing a fat line off the back of the Armitage Shanks cistern in the ladies with Dr Legg. She snorts hard and looks at Doc screaming "MY NICK'S A GOOD BOY"

Speaking to the BBC's Today programme, Mr Martin said: "There's massive confusion in the UK now because you've got the 'rule of six', Tier 2, Tier 3 - everyone's confused.

"I think you should concentrate on the basics which is social distancing. If you don't get too close to someone you won't get infected, that works better."

Tim Martin failing to understand infection points are not limited to ones proximity to another individual.

It's sad to think that everyone in this picture is now dead :(

I know you're only joking, but five of them are ( six if you count the poodle. Is the coloured gentleman who was also in " Bottle Boys" still alive? If not, then seven).

I think you'll find that Carl Douglas is still alive and (Kung Fu) kicking.

The company (Wetherspoons) confirmed on Friday that 108 head office staff have been made redundant.

Tim Martin himself deserves a good whipping for his open callous complacency, but you can't help but feel sorry for anyone else who worked their way up the slippery Spoons corporate ladder thinking it has to be one of the safest, most recession proof jobs you can get and is now out on their ear.

I don't want to undercut that amazing idea but just make this your desktop picture:



And play this youtube video in the background.

Then crack open a can and pretend your life is good.

Fuck! I can name all those characters(apart from the guy at the bar). I haven't watched it for decades. Why can't I remember anything useful?

Aw. RIP one of the pub doggos.  Kind of thought as much, had a look in on Weds and you know when an animal is on the way out.  Laying there looking sad, breathing hard and uninterested in treats, and had apparently stumbled a couple of times on the way.  Petted her on the way out knowing it was probably a goodbye and sure enough next day ;(

I will start drinking at Wetherspoons again if Tim Martin releases a video of himself licking all the toilet seats.

Sadly Spoon's bogs are quite well maintained. I think there must be an inverse relationship between the quality of a pub and the effort put into their toilet facilities.

That or the patrons all piss themselves before completing the 3 mile hike to get to them.

'spoons does have nice toilets, aye. They all seem to have those locks with that emergency release mechanism that allows you to kick the door in without destroying the lock. You never see a toilet door with no lock in a 'spoons.

Do 'spoons toilets have urinals? I'd accept Tim Martin licking those.

Yes and if I recall they're bulkier than your standard Armitage Shanks urinal.

Awww *hugs*. My favourite pub's doggo died during lockdown. She was a Cavalier King Charles spangle, one of the black and tan ones with ginger eyebrows that make them look really sassy. She was an absolute legend, very very affectionate but you wouldn't dare nick her seat. She was nicknamed "Her Majesty" for good reason.

Another pub doggo from the same pub died a couple of weeks back. He was a Heinz 57 and a lovely gentle giant but also black and tan with ginger eyebrows, very expressive face.

We've lost both of the eyebrow doggos :'(

It is a shame that COVID has robbed me of being in able to go in to a 'spoons for a chekky shit when I'm out and about. The toilets are always without fail really nice.

One of my favourite ever birthday presents was from an ex-girlfriend who nicked the disabled toilet key from our local 'spoons which grants me access to all disabled toilets in the country.
