Answer is GERMANY. I'm too lazy to let it run until tomorrow. ;-D

Real story from Reuters
BERLIN - A man nearly died from alcohol poisoning after quaffing a liter (two pints) 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 Nuremberg airport on Tuesday, where the 64-year-old man was switching planes on his way home to Dresden 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 Nuremberg clinic for treatment.

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

I guess words like "quaffing" and "holiday" kind of made it easy? :-?
Next time... :-b
The cake is a lie.

I heard this story on the radio this morning. Pounding a liter of vodka.. that's like half a two liter! *maybe* in my drinking prime I coulda done that and still been able to walk. NO way I'd try that in my 30's, not to mention 60's!!!

Gotta love Germans.

This was the part that gave it away to me:

New airport rules prohibit passengers from carrying larger quantities of liquid onto planes


That's already a well-known rule in the United States, so I wouldn't expect an American to make that kind of a mistake.

Well then you would expect wrong because we get those problems every day at the airport I work at and its a small airport.

What tipped me off is that it was vodka - Americans don't drink nearly as much vodka as Europeans - and the fact that he had vacationed in Egypt. Americans are far less likely to go to Egypt right now. Also the fact that he chugged it - Americans would chug beer, but Europeans drink far more heavy alcohol than beer compared to Americans. "Holiday" and "quaffing" only made me think it was a Reuters article, and I've tripped up a few people with Reuters in past GoFs.
