Beeeeer, where are you?

Oh for fucks sake Indiana! It's bad enough that on Sundays you can't buy beer at the store, but on election day I can't have beer until the polls close?! I had forgotten this stupid arcane rule and was so ready for a drink at 4:30 and there you go crushing my hopes and dreams with your laws.

Ok, seven more minutes and I am in the bar.

  1. As an alcohol licensing officer from London I find this very funny. I think they would riot in the UK if they closed the bars on election day. Enjoy your beer.

  2. Kyle said the same thing. Liquor stores don't open until after 6pm. What a stupid state!!!

  3. It a very odd law really. People can get skunk drunk at home and go vote. What does closing bars protect us from exactly?

  5. Seriously? That is fucked up! I agree with almamay that the UK would riot if they couldn't drink before, during and after on election day.

    Hope you made up for lost time!

  9. Well, it's 10:40 and I have been thinking about you every time the poll flips to Indiana! Still too close to call, as is Virginia. ACKKKK!!!

    But we could drink before and after we voted. So um... we'll see if that was a good thing or not! :P
