Will New Cup Sizes End Glassing As We Know It?

Everyone is talking about the death of the British pint—the government of Knifecrime Island has proposed allowing pubs to serve "schooners," a serving size that contains two-thirds the amount of the traditional measurement—but no one is asking the obvious question: How will this effect the storied British tradition of glassing? I mean, two-thirds the size? You're going to cut your hand smashing it before you even get a decent swipe in on the other guy.

Is it bad that my brain went immediately to bras?

Where I come from, schooners are much, much larger than pints.

Haven't they always served halves as well as pints? I'm not sure I get the problem here.

If they're replaced, there will be a helluva lot of pint glasses available for glassings.
