Sometimes you have to be less than subtle with customers.
Either that or bring in the bagpiper.
Reminds me of the famous Swedish bartender named Lars Torders.
those two look a bit cornered!
Last call for alcohol, so what you need?
One bourbon, one scotch, one beer.
The end is beer
but no need to wine,
more is on the way
rain or moonshine.
They’re runnin’ a bit low
but hey, man, c’mon.
There’ll be another day
so have some bourbon.
The bar will restock
Bet on it, Jack.
Just give it a shot,
you know you’ll be back.
Doesn’t he mean ‘the bottom is nigh’?
The end is near.
Finish your beer.
You needn’t go home.
But you can’t stay here.
Time to settle up?
I love it ! I really laughed out loud.
I’m reminded of the Irish pubs at closing time, where the barman would call out : " Time, gentlemen, time ! Have youse no home to go to ? "
Put something on the bar besides your elbow
Something like an old ten dollar bill
Cause I can’t put your elbow in the till (Louis Jordan)
In that case, we’ll have six pints. And peanuts.
That poor man has been holding the sign in that position all day and now his arms are locked in position and he can’t put it down. Instead of kibitzing about the wording, a kind person would buy him a beer. And hold it for him.
Hyperbolic? As in a compound parabola? Maybe it is just tangent to an oblong curve?
And the tab you’ve been running is due.
Purloined from another strip’s comments yesterday:
After a guy bolts down 6 quick shots and a beer chaser, the bartender remarked on how fast he had dispatched them.
“Well, you’d go thru ’em fast, too, if you had what I have.”
“What’s that?”, inquired the curious barkeep.
So many ways to change our world from what it is. Both human caused and natural.
And then there are dire warnings from the unbelievable past::
That’s a bad sign when the reflections do not match since the Yellow Emperor Kuan Ti sent all the beings of the mirrors back to their world and locked the door making them ape whatever we do on this side several thousand years ago. But once they stop doing it it means the spell is wearing off and when that does, not only will the bizarre and violent mirror folk come through, but the fishes of the sea will join the battle and humanity will lose our control of our planet.
Many think the immanentization of the eschaton is nigh.
In political theory and theology, to immanentize the eschaton means trying to bring about the eschaton (the final, heaven-like stage of history) in the immanent world. It has been used by conservative critics as a pejorative reference to certain projects such as Nazism, socialism, communism, anti-racism and transhumanism.1 In all these contexts it means “trying to make that which belongs to the afterlife happen here and now (on Earth)”. Theologically the belief is akin to Postmillennialism as reflected in the Social Gospel of the 1880-1930 era,2 as well as Protestant reform movements during the Second Great Awakening in the 1830s and 1840s such as abolitionism.3
• The desire to implement a policy to actualize the speculation, or as Voegelin said, to Immanentize the Eschaton, to create a sort of Heaven on Earth within history.
Have you wonder whey we never see ones that say “THE BEGINNING IS NEAR!”? Must be fewer optimists than pessimists doing it.
Depends on what ‘end’ he’s on about.
The first bar I worked at was a rowdy cowboy bar. I was a bit surprised the first night, though, when the owner/bartender started shouting “Last call for alcohol! Motel time! Go home and @#$#!”
A personal favorite was a place I used to go in Ohio where, when they served you your Last Drink, they didn’t say “Last Call”.
Instead they asked: “Are you staying for Breakfast?”
If you said Yes, they served you Breakfast. Eggs, Biscuits & Sausage Gravy with all the Coffee you wanted. And seconds on the Biscuits & Gravy until they ran out.
Breakfast usually lasted about an hour & a half by which time most people had started to sober up again.
