Rubbish penis joke gets man banned for life from UK hotel

Not so funny NOW, is it Jason?

A MAN HAS been banned from a Hilton Hotel for life after entering a penis joke on its online booking system.

Jason Payne said he never expected his jokey comment to be read by staff, but how wrong he was. When asked on the booking system if he had any pets, Payne declared that he had a ‘large snake in his trousers’. But it was his only pet, adding that he ‘hopes that’s OK’.

The 35-year-old software consultant had forgotten about the comment when he checked in to the Basingstoke Hilton Hotel, and was surprised when the receptionist started laughing at her screen.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Jason said:

The woman at the reception just suddenly burst out laughing hysterically and appeared very amused. I had no idea why and then she read the comment to me. Her colleague then also laughed.

You laughed, they laughed, we all laughed.

All good, until he received an email from the hotel’s front manager Cathrin Wurst a few days later, banning him from the hotel for his ‘abusive language’.

As you will understand, the booking comment made on your booking: “There’s a large trouser snake in my trousers. Hope that’s OK” is neither appropriate when making a hotel booking, nor is it funny. As a hotel, like any other employer, we do not accept this kind of harassment of our team members and I would therefore like to let you know that we will not be able to accept any future bookings from yourself.


The Hilton chain confirmed in a statement that the incident took place and the ban was made ‘at the discretion of the hotel team’, but Payne is welcome in other branches.

Their pet-friendly policy hasn’t been effected, but we wouldn’t try smuggle the trouser snake again.
