Man Refused Drink After Trying To Use 'Little Britain' ID
Using someone else's ID is fairly standard behaviour in your late teens. Especially when you're the youngest in your year and the only one not getting served.
But most of us at least had the common sense to pick one with a picture that looked like us... and wasn't a character from a very, very well-known TV show. Like, say, Delboy from Only Fools and Horses. Or Andy from Little Britain.
Not this guy!
A fella in Derbyshire thought he'd try his luck with an ID card that was quite blatantly a fake.
The phoney driving licence had a photo of Matt Lucas' character Andy on it - who doesn't seem to have aged a bit since the programme left the air a decade ago.
The owner of the ID was refused a drink at the festival when the police spotted it, reports the Derby Telegraph.
The name on the licence was 'Andy Scouser' and, in the address line, it simply said: 'Yeah I know I live in a house'.
He was trying to get served at the Three Valleys Beer Festival, which takes place in Dronfield in Derbyshire.
Police overheard him saying 'I want that one' to bar staff at the festival, the newspaper reports.
A photo of the ID card was posted on Facebook on Saturday by a local police officer.

He wrote: "Identification provided when asked by door staff and seen by one of our colleagues assisting the Three Valleys yesterday.
"It appears Andy has changed a lot in appearance since his Little Britain days and aged very well.
"Door staff recognise every trick in the book! No beer for Andy last night."
Little Britain was a (usually completely ridiculous) sketch show that aired on the BBC between 2003 and 2007.
It starred Matt Lucas and David Walliams as various characters, including Vicky Pollard ('Yeah but no but yeah but no but') and Carol Beer ('Computer says no').
Andy and Lou were arguably the best characters of the lot, and appeared in every single episode.
Walliams played Lou, the carer for Lucas's character Andy, whose catchphrases included 'I want that one' and 'don't like it'.
We can only assume that this festival-goer had picked up the fake licence somewhere as a joke and thought he'd push his luck, maybe to get a chuckle out of his pals.
Shame the police didn't find it quite as funny.
