Reuters: “Hungary workers get shock at bottom of rum barrel.”

BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungarian builders who drank their way to the bottom of a huge barrel of rum while renovating a house got a nasty surprise when a pickled corpse tumbled out of the empty barrel, a police magazine website reported.

Given that local homebrewers once concocted a version of “cock ale” (using macerated fowl, for those with naughty minds), a rum-based “cocktail” of similar design isn’t that surprising, is it?

Insert Hannibal the Cannibal joke here.
