Letting Off Steam While Getting Steamed


A bar in Spain has come up with an unusual marketing plan for these recessionary times. Customers at the Casa Pocho bar in Cullera, southern Spain, are encouraged to come in for a drink and to insult the staff while they’re at it. Free drinks will be given to patrons who can come up with novel or humorous ways of verbally abusing the bar staff. To be frank, I experience this every time I go to The Abbey Bar in Galbally, Co Limerick. The customers are often quite explicit and forthright in their criticisms and demands of the bar staff who, to be fair, are well able to give it back. I also experience it every time I go to The Wild Onion in Limerick, and they don’t even serve alcohol there. I’d be quite willing to return the abuse, but I’d really miss the omelettes if I got barred. Here’s a mix of abusive tunes to get you in the mood should you decide to visit the Casa Pocho. Some of the songs are harmless, others are witty or funny, while a number of them are downright offensive and contain language that some people might find offensive. Happy listening, you miscreants!
