THE FAIRSTAR. Fairstar the Fun ship to be precise. Unlike
other ships of this type the Fairstar was not full of wrinkly folk
who thought that eating a bowl of soup without dropping the
spoon was a major achievement. On the contrary, it was full of
lovely lasses and young fella me lads looking for a good time.
Just to make this tale even more enthralling the aforementioned
merrymakers also happened to be Australian!!!
These folks made America’s spring break look like a kindergarten
picnic at nap time. I swear to (insert deity of your choice) that I
met women on that ship who could trip a man up from behind and
lie down underneath him before he fell, FAIR DINKUM!
We spread the fun around, never before have
gamblers enjoyed losing their money so much.
This is where I learned the art of SKULLING BEER,
if I remember the term correctly.
This involved piercing the bottom of an unopened can of beer
with a penknife, or a biro if you were a WUZZY,
and then placing your mouth over the hole as you pulled the tab.
The beer then spurts forth at such a rate that you end up drinking
( or wearing) the entire contents of the can in 5 seconds flat.
Which is a mercy
when you consider what Australian beer tastes like.
What's the point you may well be asking so without further ado...
THIS IS THE CRAZIEST CASINO YOU HAVE EVER SEEN!
and I have the pictures to prove it
Here I am dealing blackjack.The guy with the guitar is
one of my co workers, he is on a break and the people
who I am dealing to are singing along.
MEATLOAF. Paradise by the Dashboard Light.
Guess whose birthday it was:)
These two passengers brought me a bottle of champagne
and helped me drink it.
Then the manager sent me to bed early.
Thankyou Pete and Chuggy.
