Come on and get your tankards filled, it's the start of the Alpine Lager age, new age, the Alpine age ..

To the tune of "A walk in the Black Forest"
Florida’s horrider than Whitley Bay,
No McEwans best scotch in the USA,
The bars are packed tighter than tins of sardines,
No room for barmaids with arl these machines,
Arl the flamin pubs have got this funny atmosphere,
I mean..nice place..shame about the beer

Geordie calling Houston (go ahead Magpie),
Can you send us up some drinks?
There’s no McEwans pubs,
And the local beer stinks,
Beem me up Scottie, have us outta here,
The States, nice place…shame about the beer!
Wasn’t there a version which included the USSR too, nice place Russia….shame about the beer?
Milk has gotta lotta bottle - Milk Marketing Board
Let your fingers do the walking - Yellow Pages
Everyone’s a fruit and nutcase - Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut
Thank you very much for being my Mrs - Cadbury’s Roses
Any of the above have to be better than the crud that’s on 📺 these days. Nowadays it’s all sinister sh1t about cremations, funeral plans, over 50’s life insurance, charity hawking and old git’s travel insurance. Why would kids want to see that nonsense.
Whatever happened to Beanz Meanz Heinz or Just because the lady loves Milk Tray 😀

Weren't The Baldy Man and Rab C. Nesbit different characters? Both came from Naked Video IIRC
Yeah they were different characters, Naked Video, I was trying to think of that shows name thanks.
Just looked it up, quite a few comedy people made an impact on there.

Way down deep in the middle of the Congo,
A hippo took an apricot, a guava and a mango.
He stuck it with the others, and he danced a dainty tango.
The rhino said, "I know, we'll call it Um Bongo"
Um Bongo, Um Bongo, They drink it in the Congo.
The python picked the passion fruit, the marmoset the mandarin.
The parrot painted packets, that the whole caboodle landed in.
So when it comes to sun and fun and goodness in the jungle,
They all prefer the sunny funny one they call Um Bongo!
