    I love The Oval, was great for underage drinking back in the day and it’s still a great spot post Academy gigs.

      Yes, terrific pub.

      I went there with a girl I had only known about a week. We had ‘done it’ but there was still a bit of shyness around things. After a couple of drinks I needed to go for a poo. Like really needed to go. And I was thinking, hmmm, if we end up ‘doing it’ again I really don’t want this poo inside me. So off I went. It went well until the last stage of the process. No bloody toilet roll. So I had to use my own socks. I then concealed them behind the cistern. I was not too proud of this but – not my fault they didn’t provide any toilet roll. When we were leaving the pub. she looked down and said “that is very european of you”. We did not proceed to ‘do it; that evening. In fact I never heard from her again. To this day, I do not know if it was because of me not wearing any socks or my tendency to be a bit boring around women.

          Offer accepted. I am single now and free this evening. And keen to get an active session under my belt so to speak for the festive season. Always a bit of a purple patch for me. (And just in case you are wondering I carry a small pocket pack of kleenex everywhere I go these days)

            Meet me in the toilets of The Oval at lunchtime. A little bird tells me they do a reasonably priced coffee. You can show me your best moves then.

            Not at all! Eager as a beaver, in fact. Here now already. I’m in the cubicle on the left.
            And the excitement is building if you catch my drift.

            I spent most of my time in The Oval!!!
            Except it was the Cork one. A superb pub.
            Could you not just have clenched your bumcheeks and cleaned it when you got to her gaff?

            If I had known then what I know now then yes that is what I would have done.

            But back in those days I labored under the illusion that women would find a poo-smeared bottom area to be somehow unsexy.

            Now I know it to be an enormous turn-on.

        Some pub employee, somewhere, finally has the chance for some closure over the horrific ‘poo-socks incident’ that has haunted them all this time.

        1. Bertie Blenkinsop

          I avoid such embarrassing situations by only being able to poo in my own home.
          When it’s quiet.
          And the tv volume is high.
          Who are you calling mad?

          1. Brother Barnabas

            My little me can only poo when I’m holding his hand. He’s small enough that I still find it endearing.

          2. Bertie Blenkinsop

            I might try that with one of my fellow employees, it’s costing me a fortune having to turn down overtime cos I’m bursting.

          There is a stong whiff of desperation emanating from your cubicle , Killian. Mildred has left the building.

      2. On The Buses

        HAAAAAAAAAAAA, you should have told her you wiped your arse with your socks and then left your pooey socks in the toilet. she wouldn’t have thought you were boring then.

      Always guaranteed an underage pint way back. I think they had some kind of disco bar upstairs as far as I remember. Used to go there and Sean O’Caseys (which may be gone now)
      Different times. I haven’t been in there in years.
      Funny story Killian! made me laugh anyway.

  2. Diddy

    Yeah I send people their who are looking for Irish pub grub. Prices up all over mind you.. and wages getting squashed

  3. Janet, I ate my Avatar

    Always enjoy that pub one of my first stops when I got back
    love the very end of the bar just wedged in behind the bar partition + 1 toasted sandwich

    I would like everyone to know that Mildred is all talk and promise. Lunchtime has passed and I am going home now. And guess what? They still don’t have any bloody toilet roll in that place.

    1. Brother Barnabas

      That’s sad.

      The episode of Extras with him in it is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.

      1. bertie blenkinsop

        Poxy the way Gervais ran out of steam, The Office and Extras were superb, shame he bought into his own hype.

    Good call. Instead of whinging about high prices, what about BS promoting low ones?

    Free publicity maybe but they deserve it.
