Top 10 silly stories of the year

While we pride ourselves on bringing you the latest hard-hitting drinks industry news, we also love a silly story at db to provide some comic relief.

This year we had a myriad of silly stories to choose from, from the New Zealander who was so drunk he forgot he sold his car, and an ancient rat being named after a Dorset pub landlord to police in Wyoming arresting a drunk time traveller from the year 2048.

Coincidentally, a large proportion of the stories involve pubs in one way or another.

We’ve rounded up our favourite 10 comic gems for the year, which we hope make you chortle. Merry Christmas from all at db.
