    The Netherlands has a program to pay alcoholics with beer to clean streets and parks. Taken on its own, this sounds like an Onion story, but I can actually see this working in a backwards, boxing-was-safer-before-they-wore-gloves kinda way.

    As a budding alcoholic, I think this is a great idea.

    The story says the brand varies depending on which brewery offers the best price.

    If it's Heineken, it's just too cruel.

    The only pisswater in Europe is nasty American exports.
