I'll Stick with Dr Pepper, Thanks

Pickled corpse tumbles out of rum barrel - Peculiar Postings - "BUDAPEST, Hungary - 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 Web site reported.

According to online magazine, 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."

If you visit the wonderful site and look up the phrase "Tapping the Admiral" you'll learn that this is apparently not a unique event.
