It all started with a beer festival at The British Leyland Commercial Vehicles Museum. On the way to the beer festival, Bananas Bunny DEMANDED that we stop of at a local craft ale pub. Apparently the best idea, on the way to a beer festival, is to stop and drink beer. Anyway, it soon became apparent what he REALLY wanted, since the ale house turned out to stock a banana beer.
It turned out that the pub also had a squeaky rubber pig, presumably some kind of dog toy. Bananas Bunny was predictably enthused by the idea of riding it after drinking his banana beer, and we failed entirely to stop him from making a fool of himself.
Having arrived at the British Leyland Commercial Vehicles Museum, and established that yes, you COULD drink beer and touch all their classic vehicles, Bananas Bunny wasted no time in installing himself on the Bonnet of a particularly fine vintage bus. He wishes modern buses looked as good!
Bananas Bunny thought this bus looked a bit like Kermit the Frog, with its froggy eyes and green colour. He had drunk a few real ales by this point though, so his judgement wasn’t all that it could be.
After the buses came the fire engines. Bananas Bunny was encouraged to, “Ride a fireman!” by his now fairly inebriated friends. He had no idea whether this was intended to be rude or not, but he did it anyway.
Bananas Bunny was surprised and excited by how hands-on the museum was prepared to allow inebriated bunny rabbits to be with their antique vehicles. He even got to sit behind the wheel as two dubious looking fire officers egged him on!
He hung around on the fire engine’s ladder until he was told to get down by some amused museum workers.
He had some time out with his friends after all the excitement with the fire engines, and used up some of his beer tokens before moving on to the most exciting part of the evening.
The Pope Mobile! Bananas Bunny had been looking forward to drinking beer next to the Pope Mobile, but what was to come was beyond his wildest little bunny dreams.
Because yes, the museum allowed him and his drunken friends to sit, drink beer and misbehave in The Pope Mobile itself. He was a very excited little bunny!
