Name That List, #58

What is this a list of? The answer is below in extended.

  • A deep-fried canary
  • Ground-up bird beaks mixed with myrrh
  • Two pickled sheep's eyes
  • Your own sweat
  • The juice of tree ivy
  • Tea made out of rabbit dung
  • Coca-Cola and milk
  • Powdered human skull, dried viper, and "spirit of hartshorn"
  • Bull-penis soup
  • Raw eels
  • Sheep lungs and two owl eggs


They're all hangover cures, found in various cultures throughout the world. Whether any of them work, or not, is another matter entirely.

First, the deep fried Canary would have me throwing up whatever was ailing me. There would be no time to eat it. The deep frying odour would do it for me. Although none of what is listed above is found in a Philippines celebration food buffet, the list did remind me of every celebration my wife has dragged me to over the decades.
