Your Favourite Local Pub Re-Opens As A Pub Today

This is a message to all of you wanting to get bladdered at a social distance because you’re fed up of the people you’ve been in lockdown with for three bloody long months… At long last your number one pub can stop being a second-rate farm shop and get back to serving warm ale and our old out-of-date snacks. Yes, we’re reopening at 5pm today… We’ve converted the car park into an extra beer garden so we can serve hundreds of drunken customers, we’ve closed the family room (we’re banning kids for now as they are the ones spreading the virus) and the toilets are out of bounds so please spend a penny before you visit us… To put us in a post-virus party mood  our very own ex-BBC DJ Kid “The Kid” Jenson has made us a few mix-tapes to play, but be warned anyone dancing, singing or talking loudly will be barred. On a positive note anyone wearing the clobber of a frontline worker will get entered into a prize draw to win some of our least favourite flavoured crisps (whilst stocks last). See you this evening!

Professor Cox’s Did You Know This: Why Do We The Unemployed Celebrate The Longest Day At Stonehenge?

Hello to my devoted socially distancing Coxettes, it’s your gorgeous (still Covid-19 free) leader Prof Brian Cox here, and i’m back answering your (almost) scientific questions…

I’m answering this one a few days early as I want to spend the rest of the week and weekend topping up my beautiful tan. Saturday will, as you probably know, be “the World’s Longest Day” and all over the globe people of all religions will be celebrating, but the question i’ve been asked is “why is Stonehenge the most popular place that dwarves, witches and the unemployed flock to dance naked at sunrise on June 21st, or is it the 20th? And what’s with these old stones anyway, do they have any use?”

You are correct that Stonehenge is apparently the most popular destination, but many other sites attract such low life on the same day, including our very own Hammerite standing stones. Stonehenge actually draws the most people due to the parking, abundance of toilets and the chance to get on TV dancing with gay abandon.

The question of what is the purpose of Stonehenge is one that’s been open to debate for many centuries… Some say it was a burial site, a place of worship or perhaps even an ancient “rock themed” funfair. I myself am inclined to believe it was once a cafe & service station for cave men & women due to the fact it was sited close to the A303, itself an ancient trading route between Exeter and Belgium. This would also account for the fact there’s still a visitors centre on the site. I believe the longest day would have been significant because the cafe would have stayed open late (opening times would likely have been at sunrise to sunset) and they probably also had some good offers on, perhaps 10% off a bison burger or BOGOF on animal furs and dinosaur eggs (good for omelates)…

So there you go, another Did You Know This Longest Day fact ticked off for twelve months. I’m off to do a zoom call with HRH The Queen as she no doubt wants to bitch about some of the wayward members of her family. Keep safe, keep well, Prof Brian Cox.
