You can't make this stuff up.
Every once in awhile, the strip wrote itself. This exchange actually occurred in a pizza joint in Rockville, Maryland. Before the state raised the drinking age, but also before I was 18, I laid the "pitcher of Bud, pitcher of Lite" line on the waitress on a lark, just to see what would happen. What happened is she brought us a pitcher of Bud and a pitcher of Lite. The next time we occupied that booth, I tried it again on a different waitress. Her response? "Can I see some ID?" What followed is the off-the-cuff response you see in the last panel. True story, folks.
