Subject: BS: Santa's Grotty Tavern 2006
From: Geoff the Duck
Date: 18 Dec 06 - 09:59 AM

Where DID I put that winter coat? The one with the fur collar!
Let's try the old wardrobe...
Red coat..
Cord trousers..
Bi bodywarmer - might do...
Oh there seems to be something behind...
I'll just reach through...
Can't feel the back of the wardrobe though...
I'll just have to step inside...
Hey! This doesn't feel like a wooden floor, it's like pine needles!
And it's getting colder...
What's that light ahead?
Hold on, there shouldn't be anything AHEAD, I'm in a wardrobe!











Duck realises that he is now surrounded by trees, snow is falling all around andup ahead, about 20 yards away is a kerosene lamp. The lamp is hanging from the eaves of a very strange shaped log cabin.
Outside the door is a sign which might have the name of the occupier, but plastered over the sign is a large piece of dayglow pink paper upon which somebody has painted the words SATNAS' GROT'O.

Placed under the dayglow sign is a crudely fashioned box chained to the hitching post. The box has a slot in the top, and on the underside is scratched "Propety of Cletus". A scrap of paper with "20 cents" inscribed in a hand resembling a drunken spider is cellotaped to the very dodgy looking collecting box.











Duck decides to investigate further befor parting with hard cash. He slips up to the door. He wasn't ready for the snow and ice so was caught on the hop, and it is difficult not to slide when hopping on sheet ice.
He opens the door a crack, and a blast of hot air almost knocks him off balance again. Nevertheless, he is now determined to find the secret of the log cabin. He pulls the door wide open and sees the elongated bar, the roaring fire surrounded by the empty cases of the banjos and accordiand which are just crackling nicely in the flames. He steps inside an looks off to his right. Is that a squid lounging in a pit full of green jello?
It looks suspiciously as if it might be.

Strange things, these wardrobes, thinks the Duck. It only seems like days since I was last here.........

...and a bewhiskered, bleary-eyed face lifts off of the bar, peers over toward him and a rough voice says, "shut the damned door - were you born in a barn? Hey...what day is it? Is it Christmas Eve yet? It seems to me that I need to do something on Christmas Eve, but damned if I can remember what...and have you seen a bunch of reindeer?"

What's unfortunate about a snowman with an erection???

No one ever builds snow ladies with all the bits....

Still, it's somewhere to hang the top hat whilst he's waiting at the bar.

Anyone got any eggnog?? Good.. a huge pitcher full.. great. That'll do for cleaning the toilets out. They've never been the same since I got trapped in there and it's the only decent thing to do with eggnog.

Who the hell drinks that crap anyway?

Ah... Bum hugs.

Liz - The winter my Mom was pregnant w/ my youngest brother we had a pregnant snowwoman in the yard - who got bigger and bigger - until my brother was borne, at which point the snowwoman took on more normal proportions, but had a baby on the breast. then since we were bored , we made the snowdaddy and all eight snow-siblings.

Huh, what are you supposed to do if you ARE that snowman?!

I used to have a girlfriend. She was cute, big where she should be big and huge where she should be huge. Nice little bonnet and a red scarf, cute button nose, cherry lips and the lovliest coal black eyes you ever saw.

We hung out together in the yard, getting colder and colder for each other. We were frozen solid in the end. Fantastic time we had there, but she's not into commitment. I was scared she'd just break it off.

So now what do I do??

Think I'll check out the bar. Best to know what is on the go this year!
Ah - roast monkey nuts in the orange bowls.
Very annoyed looking monkeys keeping out of reach in the rafters.

Mixed nuts and raisins in the square blue dishes.
Satsumas and mandarin oranges in the raffia baskets.
Oh! And what are those at the far end?
Yellow and brown stripes!
Surely not an infestation of giant bees?
Ah, I see now!
It's the Bar Humbugs in the corner.

Outside, the sound of horse's hooves (or hoofs) hammering on the hard highway, the road a ribbon of moonlight over the snow-filled moor.

"WHOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!" comes a scream and, because of the horse's sudden stop on the sheet ice, through the door is thrown a gent in knee-breeches, riding boots, woolen cape, and all that eighteenth-century highwayman get-up. He is immediately followed by a skidding horse with three white stocking, a white blaze on his head, and sporting a Western saddle with silver conchos.

As the door splinters under the impact of horse and rider, there is a long, drawn-out cry of "AAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWDSHIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTT, Silver!"

The rider picks himself up from the floor, ties his horse to a convenient ceiling post, puts his tricorn hat back upon his head, adjusts his sword, brace of pistols and silken mask, and staggers to the bar.

"Good publican, a rug of bot huttered mum...er, just gimme a big mug of run, please."

The first has sails as white as snow....


I wish I could find somewhere the old poem my mother had hanging behind our TV for years and years and years....or she could find where she put it when they moved upstairs.

It was a variation on "I saw three ships" - but there were quite a number of verses - the first ship had white sails and bore the virgin - the second ship has sails "as red as blood" and bore Christ - and the Third ship has sails "as black as death" and bore angels and martyrs.

After kicking a smashed box and its tattered sign into the hedge down beside the porch, Sage steps through the broken door.

"Moonglow must be around here somewhere now that college is out," she said. "I can smell her favorite snack of sardines. Or is that smell from something that fell out of the saddlebags of that horse parked over by the jello pit?"

She dusts the snow and door splinters off of a disgruntled cat and sets the creature on the end of the bar near the jar of pickles.

"Gad," he says to no one in particular after a swig of rum. "I think I've bent my trusty sword."

Sure enough, the scabbard, with the sword in it, nows bends gently around the back of his legs, the hilt still in front.

"Danged good thing I don't keep the pistols loaded, either," he thinks to himself. "Someone might have gotten hurt. Those flintlocks can pinch like all heck if you get your finger caught in 'em."

And he takes another sip.

That cash box is history, folks. Cletus and the boys can dig it out of the holly hedge next to the porch if they want, but it broke when the horse stepped and sat on it and it was empty anyway. Unless any coins stuck to the horse on his way past. You might want to check. . .

Squid watches with apprehension as the horse clambers into the jello pit and the level rises dramatically. With a final lurch the horse is in and jello slops all over the floor. "That could cause a nasty accident" says Squid in a concerned, Health & Safety voice when, at that moment, the door burts open and in rush Cletus and the 'boys' looking for their box and its contents...............

Pickles looks around and climbs out of the jar.
He blinks once or twice, looks around him to take in the scene.
His small wiry haired ears prick up at the sound of horse and squid cavorting in jello.
He looks back at the large jar and quietly woofs.

As Santa finishes slurping the Bushmills from off the bar, he notices the elf sitting over in the corner. "You, elf! Where are all of your buddies? They've run off with all of the toys for the children of the world...and there are a few adult toys in that sack as well." The elf stands up, flips him off, and jumps into the jello vat with the horse and squid. Santa slumps back down onto his bag stool and, ordering a pint of Old Frothingslosh, groans to himself, "and the sleigh, the bloody big red sleigh...where has it gone off to?

The menu's up over the bar - it's written in multi-coloured crayon - maybe that's why you didn't notice it.

Being offered tonight (only) is the crown roast of Nile Crocodile Tail with a lotus and wild rice stuffing; garnished with glazed pearl onions, baby golden beets and roast parsnips.

crown roast of Elasmosaur neck; stuffed in this case with a pate comprised of chestnut and Coelacanth. Accompianied by Salsify patties and Oyster mushroom ragu. (Note - serves 160 hearty eaters or 240 lesser appetites)

Pan seared Belantsea "mussels" - bite sized morsels of prehistoric shark - pan seared in a ramp and butter sauce; served over millet polenta; your choice of salad and vegetable of the day.

Just on principle, MM, regarding " a pate comprised of chestnut and Coelacanth" that should read either "composed of chestnut..." or "comprising chestnut...". To comprise is to include or be composed of. From the French and Latin, "to take along with". But no matter how you word it, it sounds scrumptious in a Cretacious sorta way. Does it include post-meteoric iridium seasoning?

Fortunately, a neighbor had seen him and taken our wandering boy in. He hoped no one would claim Seamus because he had altready fallen in love with him. "What a nice dog." he kept saying.

Kendall looked as if he could kill the two of us and then shoot the dog. Fortunately, he arrived just as we pulled into the driveway.

So, pulling on his long red coat and (somewhat the worst for wear) black boots, he clomps out through the tavern door. A rather discordant jingling is heard from outside, like out-of-tune bells on nine sets of reindeer harness. Sled runners are heard - briefly - gliding across the snow-packed parking lot.

"Well," the jolly old elf says as he staggers into the bar. "The sun is coming up on Eniwetok Atoll, and I've had a hell of a long night. I must have eaten thousands of cookies and drunk a lot of cold cocoa. Anybody left around here? No? Well, the sun must be over the yardarm somewhere!" Getting a wave from the squid but no other answer, Santa steps behind the bar and fixes himself an Irish coffee, and then, while walking tiredly to the door, says "time to get Rudolph and the rest of these guys cleaned up and start on my long winter's nap."

As usual, like a caretaker (That's janitor to you USAtians) I open the room and after the mess, close it again.
Bye all!
Quack!

Techincally speaking, Santa only appears for one night a year... should we rename this the Grotty Christmas Tavern as Christmas has another 10 days to go!

And no... I'm not still stuck in the can... huge indulgence in sprouts provided the much needed burst of compressed air to pop me out.







Could Bert's card stretch to a new wall do you think?

Quietly he straightens his rapier and wipes the...stuff...off his brace of pistols. He walks over to the jello pit, reaches in and grabs a bridle and pulls.

With a huge sucking sound the animal comes loose, and he springs into the saddle, from which he is removed by a large squid tentacle and deposited none-to-gently on the top of the Christmas tree right next to the Angel.

Hmmm, he thinks. A bit of transvestism in the jello pit, me thinks.

Oh, yeah. Kinky. Wouldn't have thought it of the horse, squids you can never tell about.

Now, how to get off this damned tree?

Look out below!

That guy in the tree next to the angel has been barfing his guts out all day. . .

Tossing him up into the rafters wasn't such a great idea, squid--he'll hit more area the next time he lets loose. Would you untangle him and maybe shove he and his horse out the back door?

(I fixed it, but it's amazing what the page looks like if you forget to use that close quote in the html!)

As he looks upwards to the Angel, he notices tears rolling down the innocent face. The angel opens its eyes, notices him, and says, "Well, it's because Santa had a bad day and told me exactly where to stick this tree, that's why!" and closes its eyes and continues to weep in pain.

While you are at it Squid, please take that angel down gently. Not a bar stool I think. Maybe he/she can recline on the bar. A little nog with a dash of brandy will make things better.

"Yes, Ma'am," he says, reverting to his Western Culture. "Them there pickled Rocky Mountain ersters kin fool a feller inta thinkin' they're pickled onions right easy like."

And below, an small angel gives a huge sigh of relief as it sits in a cool tub of water....

Rising, the angel raises its right hand and he is softly and gently removed from the tree. With its left it brings the horse, now fully saddled and clean, from the jello.

And the little angel was now a very attractive young lady, at least so he thought, but by the way the women present were acting the actual sex was in doubt. He hadn't seen women act like this since that Beatles concert back in...oh, hell, too long ago. Or maybe Elvis, before he got fat and strung out....

And the angel said, "I bring you tidings of great joy, for today is born a barman/maid, whichever your preference, for angels are really cool and can do cool things. Moreover, you can now use Bert's credit card for food and other stuff, because angels have taps to the Inexhaustable Liquor Supplies of Asgard. And that reminds me -- those folks from Valhalla are dropping by to help celebrate the New Year. They'll be here any minute. Most of them have even bathed.

"What'll it be?"
