16. It's not rocket science... it's BEER MATHS!
CAUTION: Yen's blog contains harsh lanugage and even harsher notions of propriety. Reader discretion is advised.
Now, I'm no mathematician, and I'm the first to admit it. I'm not a total dunce, but my mind is largely visual-based, and if I can avoid doing sums, I will.
However, doesn't this strike you as the most pointless sign you've seen this week?
Thanks for pointing out the special offer guys! "At that price, I'll take two!"
Actually, I bought one pack. They're pint-cans, I'm not an animal.
I've got a funny feeling that someone did notice, but they figured that your average Stella-hunter will be to pissed/confused/brain-damaged to notice anything's amiss. They'll auto-focus to the orange "I'm on special" tag, and assume they're getting a bargain.
Ironically, it is a bargain. A 4-pack of Stella-Pints is usually £5.something, so £4 is the special offer. That's what you get for hiring agency staff without interviewing them first.
