comic making puns about tall pubs, raising the bar, high steaks, up in the air, and an ale mint

Transcript:
(Two reporters on TV)
A: Welcome to another edition of the Feud Network Challenge.
B: We’re in the village of Great Barton for their annual Tall Pub Competition.

A: That’s right, every year the citizens here have 5 days to construct temporary pubs. The pub that can serve the judges at the highest altitude wins the prize.
B: You can say they’re really raising the bar here!

Narrator: The meals for the judges must be prepared at the same height that they are served. This year, the requirement is a T-bone or porterhouse for the main dish.

A: And what’s more, the prize money has been doubled from last year.
B: Yes – the steaks have never been higher!

A: This just in – the rules committee is deciding on a change. The competition, with the buildings partially constructed, is postponed indefinitely.
B: Oh no! This means things will be up in the air for a while.

A: Ow! My stomach hurts!
B: What was the last thing you ate?

A: The only thing I’ve had recently was an awful breath mint after drinking something out of that cask over there.
B: We’ll have to cut the show short today. My co-host is suffering from some horrible ale mint.

They do not drink wine with song; Strong drink is bitter to those who drink it.

    I don’t remember any public houses in Great Barton, so that would be a good spot for this competition.
