Описание заведения Lame Pol, Czech restaurant
Nobody knows if lame Pol really existed, but his life and his feats have been rumored across Czechia and well beyond. A man named Pol was said to appear in one small Czech city. He said that he had been a soldier of Her Majesty's Armed Forces. He was in the wars for the Queen in India, Africa and other places, ordinary Czechs never heard about. Pol limped and was nicknamed Chromý Pol. It means in Czech lame Pol. Some people said that Pol had been wounded in the leg by a barbarian during his dashing military feats, others that an Indian war elephant crushed his leg. But wicked tongues contended that, actually, Pol's leg was crashed by a horse-drawn cart when he was lying drunk on the road right at the beerhouse door.
By the way, his love to beer led him to this Czech place. Here he met the hospitality of local people surprised by his weird talent. The good fellow could drink any quantity of beer. Even all the beer of Czechia! The matter was that Pol was injured by a piece of shrapnel in military adventures and the wound gave him some kind of special ability. He really could chug incredibly much beer, he was just unfillable. First people didn't believe and he often did it on a bet and always won. Soon no more betters left around because everybody knew the result.
As Pol didn't know how else he could keep himself, he had to start on a long journey around Czech beerhouses. A lot of time elapsed. Many legends described lame Pol and his beer feats. He was seen in many places at the same time. He was even told to contact with evil spirit (after all, Mephistopheles was limping as well). Pubs owners put his images and figures in their places, and people considered him as the beerhouses' patron and beer lover. Many pubs were named after lame Pol.
Pol was often pictured as sharing a hug with a man. Usually, this man was considered as a drinking buddy. However, another version insisted the pictures showed the barbarian who injured Pol, but Pol being a good fellow forgave him and treated to beer.
