Security discover guy's hilarious attempt to smuggle alcohol into event
It's no secret that buying alcohol at events and festivals these days is probably more expensive than the ticket itself.
As the price of alcohol keeps getting closer to what I imagine the average house price must be, it seems that people are getting increasingly creative when it comes to sneaking it into events.
However, it often happens that some people are a lot more successful at smuggling than others, as one unlucky person found out at Southwell Racecourse.
This was spotted by security yesterday, you hide it, we find it! Let us know your witty strapline suggestions and you could win a prize!! pic.twitter.com/2bXVdIIHJa— Southwell Racecourse (@Southwell_Races) August 21, 2017
The security at Southwell Racecourse discovered a bottle of Glen's vodka hidden in a sandwich as someone tried to sneak it into the races.
Seizing the opportunity, they took to Twitter for a caption competition, offering the best one a prize. And to be fair, there were some pretty good responses:
You'd be s(a)lammed after a bite of that— Salisbury Racecourse (@salisburyraces) August 21, 2017
A strange thing to Putin your sandwich.— Danny Harrison (@dannyaharrison) August 21, 2017

'You have to admire this lads spirit' 😳— Chris Poole (@_ChrisPoole) August 21, 2017
They won't be russian back to your racecourse anytime soon!— Rob Reay (@robreay) August 21, 2017
I've heard about adding sauce to your sandwich, but that's ridiculous...— Big Harry Carter (@BigHCarter) August 21, 2017
There were also a fair few people asking the important questions:
how did you find it? Did you ask to open up a sandwich?— Paul (@Kolology) August 21, 2017
Did you let them have the sandwich back?— Salisbury Racecourse (@salisburyraces) August 21, 2017
However, Southwell Racecourse have yet to answer them. Maybe if pints didn't cost as much as a university degree, we wouldn't have to keep trying to hide our alcohol in ridiculous places.
