Got any grapes?

Having some difficulty making ends meet, and yet still wanting to find a way to make it out to the pub for a pint or two? Two different methods popped up over the weekend.

In the first, just drive along the highway until someone's bag of money splits open. Of course, for this tactic to work, you need to rely on someone driving along with a bag of money, and then you need to hope it splits open in such a way as to scatter the money through the air. We can't be positive, but we have a hunch it looked something like a cartoon.

Thankfully, there is another way. And it requires nothing more than having access to livestock, vegetables, or other assorted foodstuffs.

Oh yeah, and you have to live in the United Kingdom.

But that's because a pub in Norfolk is turning food into drinks. Basically, they're encouraging customers to bring in their own ingredients for items that they think should be on the menu. In exchange, the customers are being given complimentary pints full of cool, frothy beer.

Of course, we wonder at the exchange rate. We'd guess that something that could feed a family of four might net a few decent pints, perhaps something in the Guinness family.

We'd try that ourselves, but we don't really have a garden, and we'd probably end up only carrying enough to get a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon or Milwaukee's Best.
