beer game

Sam came home from school yesterday and announced that he had won the beer game.

Bet you never saw that one coming.

(Just so no one gets the wrong idea, the beer game is actually a game his professor made to demonstrate the complexities of supply chain management, with different teams representing a factory, distributor, wholesaler, and retailer. But people always skipped it. So they changed the "factory" to a "brewery" and lo and behold, nobody ever misses "The Beer Game." Sam also took home a portion of the winnings: a cool $6.25. I believe he treated himself to lunch today. Way to go, Babe. way. to. go.)
