Did they also buy meat?

Because how can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?

And this is why we have a second ammendment. Withouth it, the king of england could tell Americans that they need id to purchase junk food.

Another sign of the Apocalypse.

Only those with the Mark of the Beast can buy and sell pudding.

I went shopping over the summer and used a self checkout lane. I bought a 6 packs of IBC Root Beer and it all but set an alarm off. The attendant came over, carded me (for farking Root Beer!) and checked every single bottle in the 6 pack.

Apparently some smart kids started putting beer bottles that look like IBC bottles in IBC 6 packs and buying them.

I can understand checking the bottles, but unless there's actual beer in there, you should tell them to go fark themselves asking for ID.

FTFA: A Tesco spokesman said today: 'There is no age restriction on this product.

'We've scanned the item ourselves and found that no age restriction message appeared, so there may have been a one-off error with the checkout.'



Do you people actually read the entire article before posting/greenlighting?

It's the Daily Fail. Reading it actually has an inverse effect on one's understanding of the subject.

So, before some Republican comes in here screaming about liberal nanny states, I'd just like to point out that Republicans pretty much own Tennessee government and I have to show an ID in this state to buy Robitussin.

These ID laws are bullshiat. I have to show an ID to the pharmacist to buy Sudafed, which can be turned into meth, but I don't have to show an ID to Toothy or Bones back in the alley behind the drug store to buy the meth itself? Just like how I have to be all 'not a felon' to buy a gun legally, but I can't do that after that 'robbing the Tesco to pay for my pudding habit' thing, which didn't have anything to do with meth or Sudafed, and anyway I can't even get a drivers' license anymore! Especially since I don't have a car since I sold it for bail money. And Toothy and Bones don't even sell guns! What am I going to do once I run out of pudding again?

Hold on, I think the police are at the door again.

I tried it but the metal lids kept sparking and eventually caught my microwave on fire. Don't even ask about the plastic spoon.

Not true. Both are technically edible. However edible does not mean good to eat. A turd by definition is edible.

Of course, since it's coming from the daily mail, we can only assume the actual story took place in a a hair salon, and has nothing to do with microwavable pudding whatsoever in reality

Damn poor homeless people. Most of them don't have IDs because they either lost it or it already got stolen. What if the only food available is pudding and they don't have the ID to buy it?

other people's problems - I haven't eaten pudding in about 20 years.

/walmart asked me for an ID when I bought pipe cleaners about 15 years ago. Apparently it's drug paraphernalia. Why yes, I was going to clean my drug paraphernalia with the pipe cleaners, but why would Walmart care about that? I already had the drug paraphernalia - I just wanted to clean it.

This may explain one of our local grocery stores' machines beeping for ID when you buy bottled root beer. The checkers never actually bother to card for it, but it's an annoyance to stand around at the self-checkout waiting for someone to come over.

I thought their system was just really stupid and no one had bothered to fix it all these years, but maybe it's an actual corporate policy that the checkers don't follow.

\I try to avoid shopping at that store anyways.

And the hillbillies with rifles get quickly suppressed by the military with its tanks and ships and airplanes.

These days, you have to hope the government doesn't want mass civilian casualties or that large sections of the military defect.

That sucks - especially when you can't even buy real beer in a grocery store where you live. 3.2 beer is evil!
