I've posted before about how much I love pun-y Sun headlines - today there was an article about the beer in the Stade de France with this headline: They Think It's All Sober. Apparently the stadium is an alcohol-free zone, so while there are plenty of bars inside the stadium all of them serve zero% beer. The idea that for all intents and purposes the beer brands looked like proper alcoholic beer brands just made me laugh.
As did these quotes:
Neil Jones, 35, from Portsmouth, Hants, said: “I’ve averaged four pints a game and my friends have knocked back double that. I was so excited by the action on the pitch I assumed I must be burning up the alcohol.
“I kept drinking and wondered why nothing was happening. Now I feel completely conned.”
Jim O’Shea, 45, from Coventry, said: “I’ve been drinking like a fish and I thought it was strange.
“I suspected the beer was watered down but had no idea it didn’t contain a hint of alcohol. It’s outrageous. I could have saved a fortune by drinking water. The fact that it’s alcohol-free should be advertised. It’s typical of the French to try and cheat us.
