Think about your local pub and answer this very important life question
We're very interested to hear your answers.
Ah, the local pub. A cornerstone of your social life and a haven for those that want a brief respite from the rat race that is modern life.
While we're not advocating too many visits down to your local boozer, there's no denying the allure of a decent pint, good company and a bit of grub. It's one of the simple pleasures that's left in life.
While some people might prefer to decompress with a trip to the gym or cinema, we're firm believers that a visit to the local pub is good for the soul.
This being said, there are always pros and cons when it comes to making that decision to have a few pints.
Do I have the cash? Are my mates heading out? Is it going to be wedged? You know the drill.
Well, one Twitter user by the name of Fright Creepley has asked a question that nobody ever thought about when it comes to visiting your local - could you survive a visit to your local pub if you had to fight the thing it was named after?
For example, would you have a pint in Moe's if it meant fighting Moe Szyslak.
In what's a fine display of the Internet being great, some of these answers are very funny.

Some pubs would make you feel really guilty.
There's a pub on our road called the Blind Busker, so in theory yes, but I'd feel pretty bad about it.

Never mess with a trade union.
Would you be prepared to engage in some animal cruelty for a pint?
Tiger Lounge, yeah I'm fucked. Unless it's like a realllly tired tiger just lounging about

Fancy squaring-off against a biblical character?
Magdalen Arms - so fighting just the arms of Mary Magdalene. Guess it depends on her boxing expertise, and condition of arms after 2k years.

Is this even possible?
I'd have to fight The Auld Triangle. I honestly have no idea how that would go.

We would genuinely pay to see this fight.
The Lord Nelson - No if it was a naval engagement, yes if it was arm wrestling

You know nothing.
My nearest pub is the John Snow. So could go either way. pic.twitter.com/tU5Nte36JM
