We have a mascot down here at the Football Transfer Tavern.
Well, I say mascot, it is a micro pig that belongs to one of the punters and seeing as the tavern is his regular watering hole, ol’ Percy (that’s the pig) seems to be in here a lot, so the landlord made him our honorary mascot.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, health and safety, hygiene etc but honestly Percy is wonderfully house trained (he still leaves the toilet seat up though) and the customers really don’t mind him being in here and if anything he brightens up their day.
Anyway, the reason I thought I’d mention Percy is because one of the customer’s mentioned that they’ve found out that former Arsenal defender Lee Dixon is clearly a big animal lover so Lee, if you’re reading pop in and see Percy.
Apparently, on a drunken stumble home from the tavern, the customer ended up in a nature reserve (don’t ask how) and came across this sign.
Good on ‘ya Lee!
