Odd Bits…

Two ladies talking in a bar.

Were you arguing?

No. Bickering. I like bickering!


Two more ladies in a bar

Where are you?

Just drying my hair. Should be ready by 5.30 pm.

And then just before 5 pm, she orders another spritzer.

In the interim, she said about another friend…She is supposed to be delivering a baby about now.

This woman is leading a very busy life from the bar! With a very different form of home accents!?


Guy orders liver and onions and a white rum and coke.

When rum arrives. He says I’ll have the fish and chips.

Overheard in Pub…Where Else?

(Obviously, no pub is to blame for people’s comments, so no image this time out!)


“My eldest son is a year away from completing his degree. My other son is a drug dealer, probably go to jail. But that’s okay with me.” Said by a man to a barmaid.

“I don’t know what he knows. But I do know he makes $5,000 an hour.” Said a publican to a punter.

“I think in the end I didn’t leave with him.” One woman confiding in another woman.

“Is it really you?” Pause. “I’ve never seen you with your pants on before.” One man to another man.

“Praise the Lord for lack of evidence.” Said a mother to a vicar about her son who looked very much a criminal.

“I have a lot respect for her. But I still think she is an a..hole.” One woman speaking of another woman.

“This was a letter that was actually mailed?” One woman said to another woman.

“You only die once?” One woman said incredulously to another woman.
