Pickled corpse tumbles out of rum barrel
Thirsty Hungarians find surprising cause for drink’s ‘special taste’

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 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 Web site 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 Web site, workers said the rum in the 300-liter 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.

Well...look at it like this, you find a worm at the bottom of a tequila bottle, why not a body in a rum barrel. I'm guessing they weren't as excited as a kid finding a surprise at the bottom of a Weeties packet though...
 
 
p.s. why did the Mexican throw his wife off a cliff?
      Cos he wanted tequila.
