So the Good Friday alcohol ban is to be lifted. Cue great jubilation and party planning nationwide. For 91 years we have suffered and suffered greatly.

Not being able to buy alcohol on one Friday of the year? Dear God (who the Licensed Vintners Association, or LVA, quite obviously fears not), how have we survived until now?

I say all of this with tongue firmly in cheek. I am so saddened to see yet another sacred, solemn day flushed down the toilet into the annals of history.
