While we continue to battle this pandemic, bars are starting to get creative.
We’ve seen bars and restaurants put blow-up dolls at table to make it feel “more crowded” (and creepy), we’ve seen another offer innertube tables on wheels to keep people apart, but up until recently, we haven’t seen anything like this.
According to Cornwall Live, one English pub actually installed an electric fence to deter customers from crowding around the bar. And it’s LIVE.
“It’s there for social-distancing,” said bar owner Johnny McFadden. “Before the fence, people were not following social-distancing and were doing as they pleased, but now people take heed to the guidance around social distancing.”
Most of the time it stays off, but of the bar gets too crazy inside, it will be switched on.
A few lads were shocked over the weekend after admittedly downing too many pints.
If you’ve ever been around a farm an accidentally caught yourself on a fence, you know it hurts like a MF’er. Although, give a a few dudes a few a few beers and I can only imagine how many times you’re gonna hear this every night:
“I’ll give ya 20 bucks to touch it.”
And he will… every time.
Hell, maybe we start putting these up at outdoors concerts… you know, really keep people in line.
