Thread Name: BS: Plastic Paddy slur
Subject: RE: BS: Plastic Paddy slur
I'd always assumed that a plastic paddy pub was a pub created with plastic, imitation Irish decor, usually called Paddy Something-or-other's. Similarly, plastic olde worlde Englishe pubs (I was going to put an 'e' on that but thought better of it!). In my experience, they even serve plastic beer.
Now The Toucan in Soho - that's a completely different matter!
