And there is much outcry over the 'world's strongest beer' at £55 for 330 ml.

This beer is not a binge drinker's dream, it's just a novelty and it's certainly not cheap. I'll stick with the whisky. The best ones are half the price of this beer.

I can only modify the words of Monty Python's King Arthur and imagine them spoken by a grey-skinned alien who has spent a thousand years reaching this solar system.
"On second thoughts, let us not go to Earth. It is a silly place."
You know the first words any alien race is going to say to us? Not "Take me to your leader", not "Can I park here?", not "Have you got a light?"
The first words we will hear through those translation machines will be "What the fuck drugs are you people on - and can you spare any?"
Because when you look at it from a distance, we just cannot be sober.
