Luxembourg has been selected to host the world’s first drink driving championships as part of its national branding campaign.
Thousands of competitors have been waiting for years for the opportunity to compete in the event and finally their dreams are coming true.
Drink driving has been an unofficial sport in the grand duchy for years thanks to phenomenally high taxi prices and lack of long distance late night transport.
Regional heats will be organised between the city and Grevenmacher as well as Echternach and Diekirch.
Drivers are expected to tackle tight corners while overtaking cars at high speeds.
Extensive training regimes will be in place to assure drivers that because they own a new BMW, it means they are invincible on the roads.
Plastic gold star badges will be awarded to the winners as well as social recognition from their well connected local commune friends.
Losers will probably get a small fine.
Following the results of previous years, Luxembourg’s drinkers claim that further essential research is required for investigating global beers and wines.
Due to a lack of memory last years results have been confirmed as “inconclusive” and thus requires further investigation and more essential funding is required.
“We need to be sure about the results,” claimed one investigator.
“There is no other choice.”

Shock ripped through the country today as a known alcoholic turned down a bottle of free Fox beer.
The man from Petange was counting through some loose change while walking in to a bar where a promotion for Fox beer was happening.
The so called “beer” was being offered for free by the bar staff partly because of a promotion and partly because they wanted to get rid of it.
Despite the alcoholic’s short money situation, he turned and went back home.
Benelux News caught up with the man at his home to ask him why.
“It tastes like absolute piss,” said the man. “I would rather drink from a sewer instead of that crap. Even American Budweiser tastes better than that crap!”

People this year were reminded that Christmas is a time for giving while Christmas stands were charging customers higher prices for drinks and food than normal bars.
While paying just €40 a day for stall rent and having volunteer staff working his Christmas stall, the local man running the stand said; “It’s a time for giving and what better way than to give me all their money?!”
“I try to be as tight as possible with drinks and food and just hope that the Christmas music playing all around will distract the people from the fact that I am ripping them off. It’s certainly worked so far!”
When asked by Benelux News team how much he pays to buy in certain goods, he suddenly became busy and not available for comment.
