What? Limits on beer during work shifts?

What is the world coming to?

COPENHAGEN—Scores of Carlsberg A/S workers walked off their jobs Thursday to protest the Danish brewer’s new limits on beer drinking at work.

..truck drivers are exempt from the new rules and are permitted to drink three beers outside the canteen. But they still went on strike in sympathy with their colleagues.

OK, so perhaps this is one area of European culture that Obama will NOT import?

New meaning to the phrase “getting pissed”

I’ve heard of people getting drunk and arrested for it. But this guy takes the cake; assaulting his arresting officers with a golden shower wasn’t the smartest move, I’m thinking.

Gay Drivers Beware

Careful you don’t get a ticket in Italy:

ROME (Reuters) – An Italian court has ruled the government must pay 100,000 euros ($157,700) in damages to a man who was told to retake a driving test because he was homosexual.

When 26 year-old Danilo Giuffrida told doctors he was gay at his medical examination for military service, they passed the information to the transport ministry, who told him he must repeat his driving test or have his license withdrawn due to his “sexual identity disturbance.”

Giuffrida agreed to re-take his test, passed it for a second time, but the ministry renewed his license for just one year rather than the usual 10 years because of his homosexuality.
