Captain’s Log – Update. Stardate 137 / 24.9
Just a quick update on this weekend’s gigs – if you were planning to trot along to see us in Dursley on Saturday, I suggest you make some new plans. The gig’s cancelled, as we’ve been informed that apparently the landlord “has done a runner”.
I assume that this means he has suddenly relocated, presumably leaving behind a pile of unpaid bills and an empty till.
The other possibility is that the phrase indicates he has suffered a catastrophic bout of intestinal distress, and that the pub has been closed for safety reasons while the bio-hazard clean-up team wrestles with the outfall.
