Quiz: Is This a Description of the 1993 Phillies Clubhouse?

Jackson Apparently
Pictured: multitudes within multitudes within still more multitudes.

The reader is invited to indulge of the following paragraphs, which await the reader not unlike a sexy Helvetica-shaped coed awaiting the reader.

Ever get nostalgic for 1970s youth hostel decor? Look no further — the trappings of table football, board games and musty old books have all been slavishly recreated here. One of the cheapest places in the city, it’s also a local canteen, complete with sticky table-tops and the tenacious smell of stale beer that bears witness to many a debauched evening. The décor is an incoherent mixture of second-hand furniture with some good pieces, and of bent wood hat stands with peeling wallpaper.

One perches uncomfortably on chairs or on a knackered old sofa, knocking back jugs of beer or rum mixers and mopping it all up with a cheap charcuterie board. During the day the place is tranquil… Always full in the evenings, it gets busiest when the gigs start, mostly with locals. A decidedly blue collar venue, but none the worse for that.

Having consumed the above, the reader (whose social calendar is filling up rather quickly, it would appear) is now extended a second invitation — in this case, to partake of the following quiz, which concerns the above description and the image(s) it has led the reader to form in his or her mind’s eye.

Ummm, Carson – I tried to take the poll but was redirected to a site with the words ‘poll’ and ‘daddy’ in disturbing proximity, one to the other. Also, the poll seemed to be just a looped .gif of the above depicted ‘gentlemen’ of Philly – Town committing le vice anglais…not that that’s an issue, mind you.
