anything for a pint, Andy & company?
Look at Andy doing WORK!!!
Today’s strip IS funny , it’s the first time I have seen our Hero Mr Andrew Capp actually work , or else risk losing on boozing :o) have a nice day Cappers past and present.
It might be a good idea to check on the supply every so often.
Strip says 2019 but it MUST be a lot older than that as beer didn’t come in wooden kegs even when I was a kid :-)
Why not “empty” the kegs right there, Andy? Would make the truck much easier to push… ;)
The real question is how far is it to the Rose and Crown and will Andy et al get what they think is coming to them??
And just like that, Andy Capp suffered a massive coronary and died.
Why not take the barrels off the truck and roll them to the pub (or home)?
That is a VERY unusual way to push a vehicle down the road… usually the pushers stand next to one another and put their effort on the TRUCK, not onto the one guy… ;-)
“My creator Reg Smythe would have illustrated us pushing the truck from the rear point of view in the formation you described.”
That is probably the most work that they have ever done.
What? No rapturous looting? Alan must impress this lot.
Teamwork, boys. A good cause warrants teamwork.
Just performing a community service.
Better to party at the scene of the breakdown.. saves a lot of work
! Andy joining a Work Party.
Several Years ago a Bud Rep asked me to jump start his vehicle which I did. He bought me two Lite draws as that is what I was drinking & gave me a couple bottles of a new beer Bud had come out with. Even thou I’d get headaches (from the rice supposedly) I still like/liked the taste/flavor of Bud.
Nothing shall keep Andy Capp from his Pint.
Points for visual humor today (for a change), and I’m not even going to denigrate the usual two-dimensional-standing-in-single-file thing (for a bigger change!) To these clods, the way they’re pushing the truck is logical, and it makes the cartoon funnier. And bonus points for the copper not needlessly breaking the fourth wall! Probably the best Andy of the year, so far.
They might make better progress if the two guys in the back would put their shoulder to the truck instead of pushing on poor Andy’s back.
Every time a see a sign for the Rose and Crown, I am reminded of the late great actress/vaudevillian “Two Ton Tessie” O’Shea singing “Saturday Night At The Rose and Crown”.
Nice to have help when you need it. The best part is, he’s probably saving a bundle on gas.
What’s going to happen if Andy, Chalkie and the other guy are NOT offered free beer as a thank you?
Andy WOULD be the first in line. And doing most of the work, too. :-O
I don’t drink, but with 34 breweries, a number of vintners, and at least 3 distilleries locally, one learns a few things how they make the garbage, er, beverages.
Beer and ale and their allied brews are normally in stainless steel. The barrels for distillates and wines are made of white oak group oaks in what is called “tight cooperage”, because oak wood’s phloem is closed and thus won’t leak, rather than open like the red oak group.
