This great Rock and Roll classic was first released by
Big Joe Turner (black boy) in April 1954…..
…..then by Bill Haley & His Comets (white boys) in
Big Joe’s is the better version, Bill’s is the more famous
Last night the G-man noticed a worrying addition to the
street furniture of London…..
…..the three-man, shoulder height pissoir
SHAKE ! ! !
The sight of the back of a chap trying to shake out the
last drops of fully processed amber nectar…..
The sight of the back of a chap trying to squeeze out the
remaining stubborn drops of the ale that cures what ails you…..
…..will probably cause some folk to report the incident
to the police as an act of public indecency ! ! ! ! !
This is not good !
Why ? ? ?
When McDonalds is everywhere and is actually good for one
thing at least…..
The khazi ! ! !
So use it !
ROLL ! ! !
Just when I thought it was impossible to find a great burger
joint at a sensible price…..
I am pleased to announce I was wrong
Try ‘Burger and Shake’
This place truly rocks !
Small in size, short menu (only two desserts) but absolutely
The pulled pork sandwich is unbelievably good…..
It’s served in a roll, the pork (Boston butt) is smoked for
sixteen hours in the basement before it ends up in front of
It costs £6 !
Which explains why the lunchtime takeout queue stretches for
thirty metres down Marchmont Street
RATTLE ! ! !
As it happened the Polish waiter that served the G-meister was
not a stranger to him
He famously piped up in an art history lecture and asked the
room to desist from asking dumb questions of the professor so
that there was a chance she could finish before we were out of
That rattled a few cages ! ! !
The miscreants were silenced
There were a lot of people thinking
‘Yes ! ! !’
‘Get in there ! ! !’
‘Go on, my son ! ! !’
If only he hadn’t spoilt it all by asking a dumb question himself
a mere five minutes later
But it was good while it lasted
So there you have it…..
Don’t piss in the street
Don’t ask unnecessary questions
Do treat yourself to Burger and Shake
