Nanny Bans Beer Towels

Nanny Bans Beer TowelsWhilst the Nanny Knows Best team were out celebrating NKB's first birthday last night, we got talking to Jackie, the landlady of "The Drum and Monkey" a fine local hostelry in Croydon.

Jackie tells me that Nanny strongly disapproves of beer towels, those useful clothes that soak up spilt beer.

Nanny is under the impression that they are unhygienic.


Surely it is more unhygienic to have gallons of stale beer swilling about the bar?

Besides that, does Nanny seriously think that people are going to start sucking on them?

Seemingly she does!


  1. Surely if spilled beer should overcome its surface tension and end up on the floor it becomes a slip-hazard, and therefore becomes a Heath & Safety issue. Gorse Fox thus suggests that the banning of beer towels is a risk and should be banned under Health & Safety considerations!!

  2. I'll drink to that!

    I guess it's time to throw in the towel on all this heath and safety nonsense.


  4. I wonder how many of these idiots there are on the government's Payroll - well our payroll really. Come the revolution we will get rid of them all and rely on our common sense as we all used to.

  5. This blog is awesome! If you get a chance you may want to visit this shopping cart software site, it's pretty awesome too!
