Photo of Drunk BabyA couple are suing American restaurant chain Applebee’s after their toddler was served alcohol in a sippy cup.

The sum? $25,000. These yanks don’t muck around.

Apparently the kid started acting strangely after knocking back a few swigs of his favourite apple juice before his parents realised he had actually been given a margarita.

The parents are outraged. Especially as they say no one else at the table was drinking. Why? Because teenage parents aren’t allowed to drink in the USA.

BBM assumes the couple were also sober at the conception of the child. But we’re not here to judge (yes we are).

When asked for comment the little boozer said he was very disappointed, “It didn’t taste yum. I like it nicer when Mum salts the rim of my bottle first.”
