Glasgow Dress Code

[Picture of pub access notice in Glasgow]WE ARE GRATEFUL TO RECEIVE A LOT OF FUN THINGS BY COMMENTS AND E-MAIL.

Some are virals and round-robbin items, but others are (or seem to be) genuine originals.  This photograph taken of a public house notice in Glasgow has the appearance of being authentic.

Thanks to Robbie for this.  We reckon it will make Glaswegians smile, but still, things are getting worse when we have to resort to public admissions of bigotry and foolishness.

For those out there in the internet world who wouldn’t know what this means, allow me an explanation: pubs in Glasgow are known as “Rangers Pubs” or “Celtic Pubs”; these are places where football fans congregate after matches to drown their sorrows or celebrate their victories. There are several football teams in Glasgow, but the biggest two are Celtic and Glasgow Rangers.

Other pubs distance themselves from football and the associated bigotry and religious sectarianism, to avoid drunken violent incidents and perhaps try to cater for families.  These pubs put up notices stating the policy of refusing access to people wearing “football colours” — meaning scarves, football tops, flags and the like.  The word “Fud” is a local slang term for vagina, but it means “fool”.  Now you know!
