OT ~ scandalous Beer prices ...

...now I am guessing you are thinking I am about to complain about the beers prices at Twikkers but no! I am complaining about the beer prices at The Admiral Nelson in Whitton.

£6 yes six quid (and I don't mean an unwell cephalopod), for a Guinness. It is only £5.50 in the stadium!


We questioned the landlord about this and he told us he normally charges £4.75 per pint for the black stuff but on match day he raises the price to cover additional cost of putting staff on. But he sells more beer on match day too......

How can he justify a 26.32% hike?

I bought three drinks at HQ (and returned two cups) - £17.50

Gave the young kid behind the bar a £20 note and he gave me £17.50 change.

Thank you very much I said.

Are you the Exeter Head Coach incognito? In which case it's a small win in the scheme of things!

Accountant: Do you drink cider? Bboonie: Yes
Accountant: How many ciders a day?
Bboonie: Usually about 3
Accountant: How much do you pay per cider?
Bboonie: £5.00 roughly
Accountant: And how long have you been drinking?
Bboonie: About 20 years, I suppose
Accountant: So a cider costs £5 and you have 3 ciders a day which puts your spending each month at £450. In one year, it would be approximately £5400 …correct?
Bboonie: Correct
Accountant: If in 1 year you spend £5400, not accounting for inflation, the past 20 years puts your spending at £108,000, correct?
Bboonie: Correct
Accountant: Do you know that if you didn't drink so much cider, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 20 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari?
Bboonie: Do you drink cider?
Accountant : No
Bboonie : What color is your Ferrari?

A sheep farmer is tending his flock when a city slicker rolls up in his BMW, hops out and asks, "Hey, if I tell you exactly how many sheep you have, can I take one?" The farmer nods, so the city slicker opens his laptop, calls up some satellite photos, runs some algorithms, and announces, "You have 1,432 sheep."

Impressed, the farmer says, "You're right. Go ahead and take one." So the city slicker loads one of the animals into the backseat of the car. "Now," says the farmer, "I'll bet all my sheep against your car that I can tell you what you do for a living."

A gaming sort, the city slicker says, "Sure."

"You're a consultant," says the farmer.

"Wow!" says the consultant. "How'd you know?"

"Well," says the farmer, "you come from nowhere even though I never asked you to. You drive a flash car, and wear a smart suit. You told me something I already knew. And you don't know anything about my business. Now give me back my dog."
