I missed this story when it first came out, but it’s too good not to share.
Last June, three terrorists crashed their van into London’s famed Borough Market, then randomly and viciously stabbed dozens of people. Before they were shot dead by police, the terrorists had killed eight people and injured dozens more.
One of the injured was a homeless man, 47-year-old Roy Larner, who was in a pub when the terrorists burst in. Larner is an avid supporter of the London soccer team Millwall, which has a richly-deserved reputation for having the most violent supporters in the land (one of their less obscene cheers is “Nobody likes us and we don’t care!”). When the three machete-wielding terrorists burst in, Larner stood up from his stool and snarled, “F*** you, I’m Millwall!” and begin to give the terrorists a bit of what-for. Larner was seriously injured in the ensuing melee, sustaining eight stab wounds, but was released from the hospital after being treated for his lacerations.
For his heroic efforts, a Swedish brewery named Frequency Beer Works has honored him by brewing a new beer called “F*** You, I’m Millwall.”
After Larner returned to the pub following his release from the hospital, one of his mates said, “Roy probably won’t have to buy himself a beer for a while now. But I haven’t seen him buy a round for two years anyway.”
