If you really want to laugh at the NYT, check this job ad. I won't quote a highlight, as there are too many to choose from.

Also, in at least one part of that country, home deliveries of alcohol have to be consumed on the spot in front of the delivery person. Otherwise it's an illegal alcohol sale. Gotta stick to the rules!
