WWW: Geriatric Carding

In this edition of Weird World Wednesday, I submit to you the intro to this piece titled excerpt from 77-year-old gets carded in beer purchase:

GALLIVARE, Sweden - He may look young for his age, but 77-year-old Swedish retiree Per-Eric Henricsson was not flattered when his local supermarket asked him to show ID to prove that he was old enough to buy a case of beer.

Now, Henricsson has asked the National Association of Senior Citizens for help in pressing the ICA supermarket in Gallivare, northern Sweden, to stop carding the elderly.

"It is ridiculous. I have been a customer at ICA for more than 40 years and they know me," Henricsson told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
