Lunchtime Drinking

Some people in America complain that the Chinese government is backward, resulting in human rights violations across the country. But sometimes it just results in hilarity. Just last year, several cities in Henan province banned their government officials from drinking during their lunch breaks. Which means that just over a year ago - government officials still got plastered on lunchtime benders. Now, Chinese booze-makers are trying to overturn the ban because local restaurants are losing money due to fewer lunch customers. Which totally makes sense because a weak restaurant industry is far more important than having sober officials to make laws.

To summarize: sober government officials will now get to decide whether or not to overturn a law - that they made themselves while drunk - that prevented themselves from drinking during lunch. There something terribly inefficient going on here that's too complicated to analyze. It's almost as inefficient as building a 4000 mile long wall over a span of 1800 years to keep the bad guys out.
