I'd let him take up all my space.
 
2013-06-30 12:33:24 AM
I'd let him walk into me.
 
2013-06-30 12:34:05 AM
I'd let him squeeze in so tightly, four other guys would have to leave.

They have trees that need trimming in Britain?
 
2013-06-30 12:50:21 AM
They really banned him for his atrociously mangled pants and shoes but were afraid of calling him a slob.
 
2013-06-30 12:50:38 AM
He's only 6'7" and this is news, to the Sun? How short are English people getting?

Sarah Jessica Parker walks into a bar,,, and, the bartender says "why the long face". budup pshhh.

23 with that hairline? Poor bastard.
 
2013-06-30 12:56:29 AM
So the bar what, the size of a phone booth?

Who the heck would make a bar that small

/as someone of that size and stature i feel his pain, it's usually on the top of your head

I'm 2 inches taller than him, I feel his pain. In the States I'm about an inch taller than most doorframes.

Like a 6'7 guy needs help with women.
He does seem older than 23 though, the "lumberjack" look doesn't really scream youth.

It's small but not quite that small. Judging by the pictures I would guess that it sits eight comfortably. Ten at a pinch, or perhaps two, maybe three Americans.
 
2013-06-30 01:28:14 AM
Who cares? The beer is always overpriced in a mini bar.
 
2013-06-30 01:29:53 AM
Maintaining the novelty of being the smallest pub is more important than a single customer... I guess?

"Adam's a real gentle giant. But on a busy night he takes up such a lot of space that I have to turn away at least four normal-sized drinkers."

What if he drank more than four normal-sized drinkers?

Andre the Giant would displace quite a few patrons, but his bar tab would more than compensate for it.

Brits look older than they are, at least to me.

Maybe the real problem is the bathroom can't handle this lumberjack's logs.

I'm just 5'10" but I can defeat almost any toilet through the miracle of IBS. I'm talking piles above sea level here. The solution is to flush while extruding, but that's hard to time even when sober.

It's Britain. Unlike the colonists, the Brits aren't a very litigious bunch of blowhards who'll take you to the courts for giving them a sideways glance or an imaginary headache in your left big toe.

I'm 6'7" and about 85 lbs. bigger than this guy.  I feel like I wouldn't want to be in a bar that small to begin with, not even enough room for a dart board unless you are standing outside and throwing in.

You shouldn't have taken it into the bathroom after he went.

No, not particularly but this thread is freaking hilarious. The mini bar joke alone was worth the price of admission.

Why yes, I spent over 3 years in England and visited France while I was there.

Just pay no attention to the fact that I arrived when I was 6 weeks old and left when I was nearly 4 years old and don't really remember any of it.

Instead he was in a pub.

CSB -

I was going to school at the University of Bridgeport, and was doing security in the lobby of my dorm building one night when Manut Bol walked in. The guy was like 8 feet tall, skinny as a bean pole and black as night. Of course I was a little stoned, and so it was surreal as hell. He had to duck under the door to get in. He was as nice as could be, signed in and went to hang out with some friends. I've never been right since.

You must have some secret knowledge.  His weight may not be the type of weight you may normally think of.

I'm 6'9" 270 pounds at 14.3% body fat, I work out and swim every day and I am bald are you suggesting I only maybe have 20 years left?

I am 24, 6'8", and looked nearly identical to that guy before I lost 100 lbs. Also I shave my terrible hair away. Most people still think I'm in my thirties. Viking blood, I guess.

So short, that he takes up room of 4 regular people according to the article. so 6'7" at 294 lbs/4 is 1'8" and 74 lbs :(
