Cardiff Samaritans to Set Up ‘Blubber Booths’ for English Rugby Fans

1428

The Samaritans are setting up so-called ‘Blubber Booths’ across Cardiff to allow English rugby fans to come to terms with their team’s loss to Wales next week.

The booths will include tissues, a telephone to enable fans to call their mummies, and a picture of Scott Gibbs touching down at Wembley in 1999. They will be dotted around the city next Friday.

City manager Bryn Bathwater told WalesOnCraic:

“We are expecting a lot of English fans here a week Friday and they’ll all be bitter once the game is over. With the help of the Samaritans, we are giving the English fans a chance to drown their sorrows before they head back over the Severn Bridge.”

English fan Tarquin Peacock-Smyth said:

“What, what? Cucumber sandwich old boy?”
