Bavarian Governor Says It’s OK To Drink And Drive

Just three days before the official beginning of Oktoberfest in Munich, Bavarian governor Gunther Beckstein announced to a crowd of pre-revelers that “It’s not a problem if you drink one Mass (one-liter glass), or two if you’re there for a few hours.” Though he advised beginners not to drink and drive, he thought it perfectly safe for a “grown man” to consume about three and a half pints and still be able to drive.

He soon came under fire from his fellow officials and he quickly retracted his statement saying, “One musn’t drink and drive”. Maybe he himself was hittin’ the steins before he said the original remark. Link!
