Bar Exam: The Outtakes



Have you check out this week's cover story? The Flyer wrote up a "Bar Exam" and gave it to seven local bartenders: Ben Rhea of Interim, Michele Fields of Max's Sports Bar, Brad Pitts of Bari, Leanna Tedford of Jim's Place, Erin Patterson of Blue Monkey, and Allan Creasy of Celtic Crossing.

Here are a few things that did not make the story.

We asked Leanna Tedford if she had ever had to put someone in a headlock. "Headlock? No," she answered. "But there was one time when I should have and would have if I didn't have a hernia. Medical exemption? "

When faced with adding up our sample tab, Brad Pitts said, "I'm not very good at math. I was a poli-sci major. " (He got it right.)

If Ben Rhea had his druthers, he'd be a full-time golfer.

About Question 10, "Provide the punch line. A rabbi, Catholic priest, and Baptist preacher walk into a bar. The bartenders says …?"

From Tedford, "Hey, Uncle Johnny! Hey, Uncle Fred! Hey, Uncle Ray!"

From Michele Fields, "ID, please!"
