Dry

The Scene: A local garage

The Characters: Big Hans, the proprieter; Nelly, a customer

Nelly: I see yer man on the council is proposing to bring in Prohibition and turn Ballymena into a dry borough.

Hans: Aye. I seen that. There was a boy in here this morning told me that, yer man, before he got saved, followed Linfield all round the country and would have tuk drink out of a dirty bucket.

Nelly: Is that right? It just proves again that there's no keener body than a convert.
