Dangle’s Participle, the pub for English teachers in Wuxi, China will be holding Drain Cleaner Night every Friday. Sammy Dangle, owner of the "third part of the verb" pub as it is affectionately called by its English teaching patrons, told the WCE Blog that "patrons get a free one litre bottle of Best Ultra Javex drain cleaner with the purchase of a tall mug of Snow Draft! They can also get a 500 ml glass of Classic Xtra drain cleaner if they would bring in a potato or a persimmons! And any English Teacher who can accept the conjugation challenge** and conjugate the verbs do, be, go, say, read, run, write, ride, steal and take, correctly will win a lifetime supply’s Dangle’s Deluxe Bavarian drain cleaner!"
Asked if he was forced to hold Drain Cleaner Night promotion because of competing potato and persimmons night promotions at the Chestnut Pub and Santiago Cafe, Dangle said "No! Nope! It merely is a coincidental occurrence happening at the same time as the other pubs. I am a person of mine own who stoops never so low like to steal or copy the ideas of others that are had by them!"
News of the promotion was greeted with great acclaim by the English Teachers who came from Ontario, Canada. Said Duston Short, a disgraced former sumo midget wrestling champion and now English teacher at Broadway English: "For too long, us Ontario Expats who from come to Ontario have had to have been to butts of jokes of all Wuxi Expats that aren’t from Ontario. Me mean that just because stupid things done by we are means not that us should be disrespected as us have been. And so it is nice that Sammy of the Dangle is having a promotion for a product that is the national drink of where us be from! Bravo Dangle!"
Andis Kaulins, the English teacher who doesn’t want anyone to confuse him with the Andis Kaulins who is the president of the Wuxi Expat Rifle Association, the Andis Kaulins who is a general in the Wuxi China Expatdom Marine Corps and the Andis Kaulins who is the president of the Wuxi Expat Elite Expat Association, told the WCE Blog that he may go the Dangle to take advantage of the promotion, and so break the moratorium imposed by his wife on pub-going. "The warmth and fellowship that I associate with drinking drain cleaner in a packed pub with fellow Canadians, even those form Ontario, brings back memories of living in Canada!"
The Dangle will hold its first Drain Cleaner Night on August 24th.
**So far, none of the patrons of the Dangle have been able to conjugate the ten verbs correctly.
