Why Britain Is Great: 3

I like a drink as much as the next man. Unless this is the next man... Four pints, a gasper, two ashtrays, a plate of unidentified stuff. This picture was taken in February 1979 - do you suppose he's still alive?

That reminds me of Albert Finney in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning - drinking pints one after the other, just because he could.

I think he's drinking to try and blot out the impending gloom of Margaret Thatcher becoming PM. Or perhaps he's celebrating Nottingham Forest's fantastic progress in that year's European Cup.

Maybe his three mates are:

1, In the khazi; or
2. Really short.

It could be a beer tasting!
Close inspection of the plate of snacks,they look like some carefully decanted crisps, much like they do in fancy dan continental bars. Again a quality shot.

BA: Just beause he can - I like that!
MB: Who needs friends when you have four pints lined up ready to guzzle?
bltp: that would be great if it was a few crisps - laid out all nice like, for his dinner. God bless him...

Right, that'll be me scouting Ebay for pint mugs this weekend then. Gotta get me one of those.

My Dad has to have his pints in them - will refuse a 'sleever' (straight glass). He could definitely keep up with this man, and is 84.
