"It’s happy hour somewhere” is a jocular excuse for drinking that has been printed on many posters. “It must be happy hour somewhere in the world” was cited in a 1987 play. “It’s always happy hour somewhere” was cited in 1997.
Similar sayings include “It’s five o’clock somewhere” (it’s time for an alcoholic drink), “Putting vodka in my juice, because it’s Russia somewhere,” “It’s breakfast time somewhere” (it’s time to eat breakfast foods, such as cereal) and “I eat cake because it’s somebody’s birthday somewhere.”
