Hungary workers get shock at bottom of rum barrel

BUDAPEST (Reuters) - 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 website 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 website 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 website, 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.

having the disadvantage of being Hungarian, I can totally see how this scene un-folded. 3 Hungarian middle aged men sitting around smashed with a shot glass in one hand and a bottle in the other, when the body falls out, they scream in disbelief , look at each other, shrug their shoulders and keep drinking.

I wonder how many quality drunks you can get out of a 300 litre barrel of rum. I also wonder what the workmanship is like on the house they were renovating.

yeah man, last time I was in Budapest I had to wait 20 minutes for the Budapest equivalent of the GO train cause there was a porn scene being filmed. While waiting I went to the nearest bar for a few shots of rum, luckily the bar was 20 feet away.

I dunno about the most bitter or self-serving part.... but definitely freakin weird people



It gets even more disgusting to think of how long the man was alive in the barrel and how many times he must have shit and pissed in there. Yum.

What always gets me is how most cultures always stick together, but Hungarians never do.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m proud to have a Hungarian background and I speak it almost perfectly. But I just find that my above comments fit a lot of Hungarians that I know.

I apologize if I offended you or Bean
