synbyn, it is not a pretty sight to see some poor innocent traveller, who, quite innoculously,
asks of Mr Lawson some trivial seeming folk oriented question, being treated to an hour or more
of folk history/mythology/boring factology backed up by a desire to filch a pint.
I have seen toughened American tourists reduced to offering him a double whisky just to shut him up..........
....come to think of it, I might try that myself (not the buying HIM a whisky bit- the importuning of innocents bit)
