A local man is considering tackling one of life’s very rare beasts: the elusive yet forever alluring Tuesday Night Beers. Luke Butler is currently weighing up the justification of Australia playing against England in the Cricket World Cup requiring the consumption of at least four to six beers, maybe more if the game gets interesting later on.

Speaking exclusively to The Watsonia Bugle just moments ago, 38-year-old Butler said, “Yeah man, it’s super tempting. I mean, it’s Australia versus England. It’s the World Cup. And they’re playing at Lord’s. The kids will be asleep. It’d be rude not to, really.”

While that supporting evidence seems to make the decision very easy, Butler claimed there were some mitigating circumstances. He said, “It’s very early in the week. Plus it’s winter. In the middle of summer, when the Big Bash is on, this would be a no brainer, but it might kind of feel weird sitting under a big blanket, in the dark, sipping beers on my own in the lounge room. Does that mean I have a drinking problem?”

However, Butler did say that the venue of tonight’s all-important clash could cast the final deciding vote. He said, “It’s at Lord’s, mate. The home of bloody cricket. How could I not toast that momentous occasion with a few quiet tins? I reckon I’ll swing past the bottle shop on me way home from work tonight. It’s happening.”
