Every bar has its quirks. Some have odd themes like Zombies, insulting bartenders and bartenders in bikinis. This bar however, forces you to watch your mouth, not because of foul language, but rather to stop people from saying the word “Literally”.
The bar is called Continental and they have a sign posted as you walk in that says:
“Sorry but if you say the word ‘literally’ inside continental you have five minutes to finish your drink and then you must leave.”
This isn’t a joke, either. So why is this a rule at the bar? According to the owner, it is because Literally is one of the most over used words in the English language and it annoys him. (Well, he does own the place, so he can make the rules, right?)

And as you would expect, Twitter jumped all over this with people taking offense and mocking:
Cool, so never spending money here! Though, even if they didn't have this sign I'm sure the bartender with the vest and waxed mustache would be enough of a warning anyway…

Three exclamation marks and an overused "actually" that doesn't need to be there? Hypocrisy thy name is The Continental.

At this point, literally no has reported being ejected, but the sad part is, the Continental will literally be shuttering its doors in June.
