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.

They say this is an urban legend, a hoax. But what if it was real?

Well, in the Philippines, some tribes would store their dead in big jars and pickle them with spices. They don't eat them though, it's just how they are ummm... mummified? Or so I heard.
