War looms in Russia. Passenger planes are disappearing. Tyler Perry has another movie coming out. Clearly things are not good.
But at the end of the day, when you pay $7 for a crummy draft beer at a sporting event, at least you know exactly how you're being ripped off, right?
A group of courageous Idaho hockey fans are suing Boise's CenturyLink Arena for allegedly tricking fans into purchasing "large" beers that were actually the same size as the small. As the video above claims to show, the $4 plastic cup is shorter, but wider than the "large." So despite the fact that the two cups hold roughly the same volume, fans were being charged $3 more for the privilege of holding a taller cup.
That's a god damn outrage.
The arena has not commented on the law suit, but has lowered the price of a large beer to $6 and increased the size of the cup to 24 ounces, which would have been a nice thing to do before they were caught red f*cking handed.
“It was recently brought to our attention that the amount of beer that fits in our large cups also fits in our regular cups," Steelheads president and alleged beer-stealing twat Eric Trapp told Boise’s KBOI-TV. "To correct that problem, we’re purchasing new cups for the large beers that will hold 24 ounces, instead of 20, for the remainder of this season to provide better value to our fans."
I'm not a scientist, but I feel I'm educated enough to say that 20 ounces of beer can not fit into a 16 ounce cup. If this is happening, you're either bending the laws of physics, or your god damn cup sizes are incorrect. So those involved should either be burned at the stake for practicing sorcery, or for stealing beer money from fans. Either way, get a stake!
