Bad Idea #23--Drinking on the Job
Hungarian builders found a 300-liter barrel of rum in a house they were renovating, and decided to--ahem--"lighten the load" before moving it.
In fact, the aged rum had such a "special taste" that they bottled some up to take home with them.
After draining the barrel, it was still surprisingly heavy, so they opened it up.
And found a nekkid and pickled corpse.
Apparently the now-deceased homeowner had her husband's body shipped from Jamaica in the barrel 20 years earlier to avoid paperwork and the high cost of an "official" return.
Anyone up for a Pina Colada?
