Admittedly being a rocker is not your average profession. So, you would expect that, come tax time, they would claim some unusual business expenses, right? What about booze? Yup. As reported by UPI, a Swedish rocker …
tried to claim that because rockers drink a lot as part of their jobs, he should be allowed to import 12 gallons of spirits, 16 gallons of wine and 300 beers into Sweden without having to pay hefty import duties.
Said the rocker at his court hearing:
“I … drink a great deal more than the average Swede. I’m a singer in a rock band and whiskey is a part of it.”
The court’s ruling? Fuhgeddaboutit.
