I read this thread and thought of your scrumpy threads. It appears rotting flesh does indeed give drinks a "special flavor". :lol:

ooooh, on the subject of apples, what does "How do you like them apples" mean? Shag thought you might know, because I'm really curious

I'm not sure where that particular phrase came from. It basically means "how do you like that?".

yes, but I want to know more than that

To get this thread back on track:

Hungary workers get shock at bottom of rum barrel

Thu May 4, 9:41 AM ET

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.

According to online magazine www.zsaru.hu, workers in Szeged in the south of Hungary tried to move the barrel after they had drained it, only to find it was surprisingly heavy and were shocked when the body of a naked man fell out.

The website said that the body of the man had been shipped back from Jamaica 20 years ago by his wife in the barrel of rum in order to avoid the cost and paperwork of an official return.

According to the website, workers said the rum in the 300-litre barrel had a "special taste" so they even decanted a few bottles of the liquor to take home.

The wife has since died and the man was buried in a proper grave.

That very same fate befell Admiral Horatio Nelson as his body was returned from Trafalgar. By the time the fleet reached Britain, his barrel was mostly empty and he was rotting fast.
