Irish pub's World Cup pricing gimmick goes awry, leads to 50 cent pints

Wednesday July 9th, 2014

Germany's first half scoring barrage sent prices into a tailspin, much to the delight of patrons and the horror of management.

It is too bad the promotion was all the way in Ireland, as the people of Brazil could have used a few drinks after the game.
