Canada Day Vinyl (Part 2)

Okay, so while I admit that I have this in my collection (I’m not sure why, I must have been drunk when I purchased it), I wouldn’t exactly have made this my immediate choice to listen to but HRH  insists that we do.  So what can I do?  So we’re now listening to ‘A Night Out at the Pig & Whistle‘  as the next selection in our Canada Day vinyl celebration.


I will just have to console myself that it is a uniquely Canadian listen, get through it, and then move onto something more palatable.

So what’s a Pig & Whistle, right?

From the back of the album:

“The Pig & Whistle” is a name given to thousands of pubs (also known legally as public houses or taverns) all over Britain and is also the affectionate name given to the merchant seamen’s messes on board nearly all British ocean-going vessels.  It is also the name of the top ranking CTV network television show (produced at CFTO in Toronto) which, in one season, rocketed to the top of the ratings as Canada’s number one variety show.”

Does any of this make me feel any better about it?  Not really.  It still sucks.  Certainly, it’s at the top of my Shit List.

But, hey, when else am I ever going to listen to this?


About crazytigerrabbitman

I am a fat guy and always will be in the same way they say that “once an alcoholic; always an alcoholic”. Eventually I got upset about my poor health and ballooning body frame so I decided to change things for the better. Some people sign up for Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, or whatever fad diet program it is that happens to be occupying the majority of air time on the boob tube. Other people prefer to run out and purchase the latest, fold away, piece of shit being hawked by some celebrity has-been. Me? I decided to take up triathlon. I had abused my body over the years with bacon cheeseburgers, pints of beer and double-dipped donuts, and the time had now come to abuse my body with physical exertion, perseverance and hard work instead; penitence in it's purest form. The time had come to kick my ass. I am Terry Nash and I am the “fat and the furious”.
