This is a question Abusing freebies

A friend of mine recently attended a 'Champaign Lunch', where he was compelled drink as much fizzy stuff as he could between the first and last courses. In an ideal world we'd ask restaurant staff to tell us stories about fatties stuffing themselves at All You Can Eat places, but we recognise that our members don't all work in the catering trade, so for the rest of you - tell us something about abusing freebies. BTW: Bee puns = you fail.

Maybe not a freebie
Back in university, there was always a beer garden event at the start of year and the end of the year. The quad was roped off and turned into a big beer garden where students would pay too much for cheap watered down draught beer. It was organised by the business faculty. Basically you'd wait in a huge line to get in, then you'd wait in a smaller line for beer tickets, then you'd wait in a third line to exchange your beer ticket for a real beer.

The business faculty made one mistake: they got the cheapest possible tickets, a roll of yellow tickets that say beer that you can get at any department store. The geology faculty discovered this and bought up their own supply of beer tickets, indistinguishable from the real ones (assuming nobody was looking at the serial numbers too closely I guess). So suddenly the geology department had access to virtually limitless supplies of free beer.

One of the geologists showed up at the front of the line for beers, and said "Two beers," which is the maximum per person. The person poured him his two beers, and he handed over two more beer tickets, saying "Two beers." The person explained he couldn't be served more than two at once. So the geologist poured out both beers and repeated "Two beers."

Impressively, they were never caught. I didn't get any of the tickets because I never wanted to go into a beer garden.
