Beer makes you rich: official
Reader wowed by miracle properties of ale
Here's a quickie that we thought we'd share with you in the wake of yesterday's latest and highly-agreeable beer revelation. Take it away Neil:
After discovering that beer fights heart disease, I decided to 'medicate' myself the other night and found another excellent side-effect.
Having very little cash, I decided to forego the chippy and had a pint instead. With the remainder I purchased a lottery scratchcard on the off-chance I might get lucky, and won £70. Ergo, beer makes you rich.
I had steak that night. Tasty.
For our extra-UK readers, "chippy" = fish and chip shop, a traditional late-night meeting point where people staggering home from the pub can find battered sausages to satisfy their acute drunken lust for processed meat products.
