Terrible news from South Africa

"Consumers should brace themselves for a shortage of their favourite beer in the next few weeks, Business Report reported on Monday...The shortfall has been caused by the shortage of glass, mainly the green and flint or clear glass".

And its all the fault of hypocritical green types: "[SAB sales and distribution director Wayne McCauley] said the high demand for brands in returnable bottles had put pressure on these packs' availability, and growth in demand for non-returnable bottles had resulted in temporary stock shortages of certain brands, which would continue intermittently over the next two to three months"

See what I mean?

Not really, ol' boy. Surely if the market is king, and the consumer wants returnable bottles, they should be given 'em.

I doubt the SA gumn cares, given that they barely understand the aetiology of AIDS.

MLP, hey are finally getting to grips with AIDS: apparently it has been runing riot in RSA for so long because the condoms on offer are just too small for the big lads of SA _ so they are now introducing extra large sizes in the hope of better compliance. Perhaps this would follow for beer bottles too? Surely the glass:beer ratio is far higher in smaller bottles than big ones? Buy your beerin bigger bottles and say bye-bye to bottle-glass shortage...
