Bernthal The Way It Oughta Be: Underage Drinking ID’s

ST. LOUIS, MO. (KPLR) - In Missouri and Illinois and you need to be 21 before you can saddle up to the bar for a drink.  I know fake ID's are everywhere.  They're easy to find.  Kids can even order them and they're doing just that.

But our friends across the Atlantic have started something new.  Bouncers don't just ask for an ID, they also ask for your Facebook profile in the UK.

It's caught a lot of kids of guard and sure enough the bouncers have kept a few minors out because the date of birth on Facebook doesn't match up with the one on their fake ID.

Sure kids can set up fake Facebook pages but it's still not a bad idea.

I'm JB and that's The Way It Oughta Be.
