What do you want from the liquor store?

This is an awfy time of night to still be working, so here's a musical interlude from Ted Hawkins -


Of course, when he asks "What do you want from the liquor store?", he's actually saying "I intend to visit a purveyor of fine wines and elegant spirits who disdains deep discounting and encourages responsible drinking, would you care for a light refreshment?" and when he says "I'll buy you all that your belly can hold" he's actually saying "I'll pick up a curry on the way over as well."

Calum,

And I thought I was the only Ted Hawkins fan in the Party!!

Only this evening I cooked the dinner listening to the late Ted including this masterpiece.

Although I do think he is also offering to get his 'loved one' something a little stronger than A bottle of Buckie!!

How can you miss the point of such a masterpiece and crack jokes like that...

Years of practise! The joke was about a political situation in Scotland at the time the post was written.
