Germany or Florida: Vodka version!

Postby beanoX3 » Thu Dec 13, 2007 10:04 am

Thought I'd take a stab at one of these, as this story made me chuckle on the way to work.

A man nearly died from alcohol poisoning after quaffing a liter of vodka at an airport security check instead of handing it over to comply with new carry-on rules, police said Wednesday.

The incident occurred at the *NAME* airport on Tuesday, where the 64-year-old man was switching planes on his way home to *CITY* from a holiday in Egypt.

New airport rules prohibit passengers from carrying larger quantities of liquid onto planes, and he was told at a security check he would have to either throw out the bottle of vodka or pay a fee to have his carry-on bag checked as cargo.

Instead, he chugged the bottle down — and was quickly unable to stand or otherwise function, police said.

A doctor called to the scene determined he had possibly life-threatening alcohol poisoning, and he was sent to a *CITY* clinic for treatment.

The man, whose name was not released, is expected to be able to complete his journey home in a few days.

Using the term "holiday" instead of vacation makes me think Germany. :-?

Everything about this screams Germany, which makes me think it's Florida, which makes me think Beano is trying to outsmart us and it's really Germany.

I'm going with Germany.


As for the story, why in the world would he slam it ALL, rather than just drink some of it (since I'm assuming it was a good bottle of vodka and he wanted to enjoy it) and pitch the rest. Unless this guy is a HUGE drinker, after about half the bottle the flavor and goodness are going to be gone. If he did it for spite, that's pretty dumb.

Gotta stick with Germany on this one. Reading the story I just kept thinking Germany, didn't sound at all like Florida to me.

I saw this story but didn't notice if it was Germany or Florida. I thought it was England, but that must have been a different story. I'm going with Germany.
