I am so having one of these...

It's my fortieth birthday in a couple of months and I want to go out with a bang.

So imagine my delight when this was forwarded to me:

In case you can't see it from the pic, it's an inflatable pub. Pitch it wherever you like to redefine your local!

You can hire one here.

I've just spotted the pun in my first sentence. I didn't even realise.

Fantastic. I suppose a darts tournament would be out of the question though.

And does a big balloon count as being inside? i.e. Can people smoke in it?

Genius.

It does rather beg for a version of an old school joke:

A bloke takes part in the darts tournament inside, has a few too many and his aim goes awry.

The landlord says to him, "You've not just let yourself down and your team down, you've let the whole pub down."

Thankyou very much. My name's Pete Brown, I'm here all week.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. I'm in a class, learning about some dreary computer software and just guffawed.

Bastard.

Do you have to blow it up yourself complete with beery breath, hate to think what would happen if you stopped halfway — visions of inflatable pub whizzing around, complete with inebriated clientele crying for help inside. Have birthday in two months as well, am opting for bouncy beer tent instead.

That's a proper rubber-dub-dub!
