Life's a Cab-aret
November 19, 2004 06:48PM
A taxi driver from Morpeth, Northumberland, is offering the latest in in-car entertainment after installing a karaoke system in the back of his cab. Paul Blade's passengers choose from 50 tracks and sing along to the words that appear on a 15-inch screen in front of them. Favourites include YMCA and the works of Elton John. "Girls are the most likely to use the system on the way to a night out," says Paul. "Blokes use it on the way back when they've had a few pints." Paul reckons the system has a calming effect on the Morpeth drinking scene. "Even somebody who has been in a fight will change when the karaoke is switched on." It's had a calming effect on Paul too, boosting his takings by around a third. Not all Morpeth residents are so happy though. One disgruntled local, who declined to be named said, "It's shite man, he hasn't got any Studio One, or even any Bob Andy! F**k it, I'm getting a bicycle!"

Hahahahahahahaha - nice one!

I don't go drinking in the town centre as it's full of 14 year old binge drinkers so haven't been in the taxi.

I'll stick to the village pub on the outskirts of Morpeth I think.

However if he got some Studio 1 versions on a disc......... :-)

Respect
