Surly burly

Revised prompt

A humorous and exaggerated depiction of a burly man with a surly expression. He is large, muscular, and has a rough, grumpy demeanor. The setting is a rustic pub with wooden furniture and a lively, chaotic atmosphere. The man is wearing a plaid shirt, has a thick beard, and is holding a large mug of beer. His eyebrows are furrowed, and he has a scowl on his face. Around him, other patrons are either laughing or looking intimidated. The overall scene is lively and cartoonish, capturing the essence of a 'surly burly' character.


  • That's not a large beer it's a small beer. No wonder he's a bit miffed.
  • Reminds me of "Blinded by the light", written by Bruce Springsteen, performed by Manfred Mann. When I checked the lyrics the line I was thinking of turned out to be "And little Early-Pearly came by in his curly-wurly".
