The Pub Queue Problem, Solved

If you're not familiar with British comedian David Mitchell (he and partner Robert Webb have a sketch about conscience-struck stormtroopers that's rightfully become a modern classic), here's a chance to make his gastronomic acquaintance. As part of his ongoing video Soap Box series for The Guardian, Mitchell drills down on the topic of people who place complicated orders in pubs and jam up the works for regular people who just want to buy a beer.

His fix, in short: "Let's class anything more complicated than a vodka and orange as officially a 'food'—you can have it, but you have to order it from your table."

And you can also enjoy Mitchell and Webb in a sketch focused on high alcohol beer.
