Seriously – a vending machine that dispenses wine bottles. All you do is blow into a machine (to prove sobriety), swipe the credit card (to prove you have money), and then hopefully a bottle of wine drops out (to prove how crazy the whole thing is).
Pennsylvania – “America Starts Here” – is using wine vending machines on a trial basis. The government who won’t let you buy wine in a grocery store sells wine like it was a bag of Skittles! In a report issued last week, Pennsylvania Auditor General Jack Wagner says the state liquor control board’s wine vending machines are operating at a loss, costing taxpayers more than $1 million since they were introduced a year ago. I’m no business major, but shouldn’t you make money when you have a monopoly on something?
In the words of Yackov Smirnoff “What a country!”
