Several bloggers have been putting up posts about alcohol and hangovers. Since the muse is AWOL, so shall I.
Circa 1960’s, US Army enlisted, wanting to get drunk fast, came up with a concoction called “Motherfuckers”.
A tall glass is filled 2/3rds with a fortified wine like MD2020. The top 1/3rd is filled with Everclear or other straight alcohol. To imbibe, the wine is sucked through the alcohol. The drinker, in a hoarse chocking voice, goes, “Oh motherfucker”.
Several soldiers could get wasted on just one bottle of each ingredient. Economical, it was, with each contributing a few dollars.
The next day hangover is epic. Being young, dumb, and full of testosterone, it is a badge of honor.
First Sergeants were not fans of the drink.
Probably the only reason the Russians never came across the Fulda Gap was they couldn’t gather enough sober troops at one time, IMO.
