This joke appeared in a cartoon in my daily paper, NRC Next. It refers to the drinking age for beer and wine being raised from 16 to 18 here in Holland. I think a pretty stupid and counter-productive move.
Fokke and Sukke
are 17 and law-abiding
Fokke: A crate of beer for this evening.
Sukke: and then a bottle of children's champagne for the New Year.
My son Andrew is 17. He could legally drink beer in a pub until midnight, then have to celebrate the New Year with lemonade. How totally fucking ridiculous.
You can see the original cartoon here. Though probably only for today.
