Just 24 beers? How about two dozen, instead?
I’m sorry sir, but you can’t drive that tow-truck full of beer onto the motor racing grounds, I’m afraid. It’s over the posted limit.
Limit? Limit? But it’s BEER!
I understand, sir, but this year, racing fans coming to the Bathurst 1000 will be limited to only 24 cans of beer a day. We don’t want folks getting drunk.
Just 24 cans? What am I supposed to do after lunch? Can I bring in wine?
Yes, four liters a day, INSTEAD of beer.
Four liters of wine? I go through that much at Communion! What about low-alcohol beer?
You may have 36 cans of that per day, sir!
Woo-hoo! Thirty-six cans! I beat the system! Out of the way, loser, I’m comin’ in!
You’re plastered already, aren’t you, sir?
