A GROUP of men playing pool in a pub have agreed that all attractive women present would definitely only consider shagging the winner.
The players believe the rule is as inviolable as putting your 50p on the side of the table to indicate it is your turn next, despite having never consulted with any women about it.
Steven Malley, a member of the pub’s official pool team, said: “Stands to reason. They’re not going to be interested in a bloke who screws it off the side cushion and pots their opponent’s ball, are they?
“Like chivalry, being a demon on the pool table is a lost art. That’s where I have the edge over other men. Ladies want someone who appreciates the importance of backspin.
“They don’t like to look like they’re watching, instead doing things like ‘going on their phones’ or ‘talking to friends’, but believe me, they’re missing nothing. And they are hot.”
Pubgoer Helen Archer said: “He kept asking if I wanted to play pool. When I agreed, he took his cue out of its case and referred to it as ‘she’.
“I’m going to do a runner halfway through and leave him hanging for the rest of his miserable, sexless life.”
