Investing in beer a bad idea admits local drunk
Local park bench regular, Hugh Wendover, admitted yesterday that investing his money, sourced from generous donations from park visitors, was doomed to failure from the off-set.
‘I bought the beer with the firm intention of keeping it in a cellar, and letting it collect dust until it’s value soars in 20 – 30 years. Sadly, I forgot I have no cellar. That and a weak carrier bag means the turnover of stock has left me with a real headache.’
Mr. Wendover is now believed to be investing in a portfolio of discarded newspapers, and is actively seeking backers for his plan to start a hedge fund to provide himself with some temporary rural accommodation.
