I have mixed feelings about the government\’s proposed new two-thirds pint measure – just don\’t call it a schooner
Of course not. We already have a word for a third of a pint: stoup.
Thus the new glass size is a \”double stoup\”. Or possibly a \”large stoup\”.
Which will add greately to the gaiety of the nation, as a \”double\” or \”large\” becomes smaller than a pint.
Won\’t that drive the tourists usefully to distraction?
