He's gonna be surprised to find he's getting nighttime repeat customers.

NTTAW....well, yeah, there is, actually.

Sounds like he ought to move to Cork.

If this doesn't work he's asked Siouxie to come stand in front of his shop with her machete. One whack and you wouldn't be able to be a repeat customer iykwim.

but will this blog have the first story of someone who ... goes anyway?

Yep, the "steady stream of late-night partygoers" seems to be exactly the problem, in both ways.

This crazy Irish dude has the right idea: Better to be pissed off than pissed on!

"Doc it burns when I pee, but only in the alley".

Fried wiener anyone? Condoments are free around the corner at the clinic.

Unfortunately, they tested the "peeing on an electric railroad track" legend on Mythbusters, and it doesn't work unless the drunk is pretty much laying down on his face on the electrified surface. Which means it actually could work pretty well in front of an Irish pub.

padraig, as a fellow irishmen, or in my case woman, we know that the real reason that God invented grass was to give us something to hold onto so we wouldn't fall off when the earth was spinning.

A minor modification to this gizmo might be more effective.

ISIANMTU was at that shop this summer. I took my son in to look at the instruments, he's a drummer and was shopping for a bass. We came out of the shop and had to stand to the side a a tall, thin, drunken old geezer is stumbling down Cooke's Lane or whatever it was called. It was about 11:30 am. I know they have website, that's how I found it in the first place.

They do Custy's Traditional Music Shop

It says he's taking a slash and burn approach, another euphemism by a writer trying to be funny.

British/Irish slang:

slash Verb. To urinate. Onomatopoeic.
Noun. An act of urination.

Scroll to the bottom to see the storefront and you can guess where they wee.

As an Irishman I resent the comments about being drunk all the time. In fact, I ZAP ZAP ZAP ZZZZZPT.

If I know drunks, and more than a few have been acquaintances, this will be judged as a challenge after the first six beers. There will be a cheering section and bets will be placed.

So the shopkeeper was pissed at the pissed?
