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.

We chewed so much our jaws hurt
When I was about 12, Wrigleys did this promotion where a 5-pack of chewing gum contained a scratch card with a multiple choice question on it. If you got it right, you got another 5-pack for free. My bro and I had just bought a pack each and worked out the answers so got another free pack each. When we opened the new packs, we realised that their scratch cards contained the same questions, so we went and got another pack each.

It turned out that some marketing numpty at Wrigleys had only thought to include 5 different questions in the promotion so once you had worked out those 5 answers, it was free chewing gum all the way.

We ended up getting barred from Woolworths after completely cleaning them out of all of the Wrigleys that they had. We had bags and bags of the stuff and even made some dough by selling them at school.

Thanks Wrigleys marketing guy.
