Bottoms up

It would appear that patrons of Hoops Inn at Bideford, Devon, had rather a shit time during their visit to the pub in these rather icy conditions. A passing by tractor managed to career off the road and fling 10 tons of manure onto the pub. Owner of the pub Dee Goodwin said, “It is funny but in all seriousness if anyone had been outside they could have been killed.”  We can’t help feel however that it does give a more literal meaning to the saying ‘bottoms up’.
