Part of the “Northern Mafia” series. We see “Uncle Noel” and “Joy the Party Girl” well into the karaoke section of the Champagne and Succulents initiation ceremony. Occasionally this would get out of hand, usually during any Bonnie Tyler track.
As “Joy” sang ‘Turn around bright eyes’, Uncle Noel would spin around on top of a dented copper covered pub table to the cheers and yelps of the rest of the family.
As the evening reached a crescendo and “Joy” became more raucous, “Uncle Noel” more inebriated, the “Party Girl” would scream, ‘Every now and then I get a little bit helpless’ with the family egging them on, ‘And I'm lying like a child in your aaaaarms!’ At this point “Uncle Noel” lost all self restraint and dived from the top of the table, right into the balloon breasts of “Joy the Party Girl”.
The fallout was serious, as he’d launched himself, “Uncle Noel” had flung treasured horse brasses across the bar. These were the landlords pride and joy. “Noel” suffered a 2 month suspension from the Bay Horse and wasn’t aloud to take part in Champagne and Succulents again that year. However, due to a sudden drop in alcohol sales and a small arson attack, both bans were lifted.
It has now gone down in Northern Mafia folklore as the “Balloon Breast Bash”. “Knotla Knotla Knotla!”
