A MAN has been hailed a hero after saving an ailing pub conversation with the words “Remember Thundercats?”.
The gathering, involving Tom Logan and a group of old university friends, began in high spirits but soon entered a conversational cul-de-sac leading to a tense few moments of silence.
Logan explained: “We’ve known each other for over a decade, but sometimes we really have fuck all to talk about.
“This has happened before and I got things going again by mentioning the Poddington Peas, but that wouldn’t wash a second time.
“So I thought fast and said ‘Remember Thundercats?’. There were a few confused looks but luckily Nick responded by shouting ‘Snaaaaaarf!’”
Witnessed confirmed how the group reacted like it was the funniest thing that anyone had ever said or done.
Logan added: “There was an awkward moment where Gary confessed he’d always fancied Cheetara. We all called him a weirdo, but secretly I think we all felt the same.”
