On Second Thought, Maybe I'll Have a Slug of that Rum

Body-in-rum story had us over barrel - Peculiar Postings - MSNBC.com: "OK, maybe we should have known it was too good to be true. But we couldn't resist the story, offered by Reuters as legitimate, of workers in Budapest who drank a barrel of rum with a special flavor and then were mortified to find a pickled corpse at the bottom of the barrel. So we published it Thursday.

Readers soon began questioning the veracity of the tale and pointing out references to similar stories on urban legends sites."
