'Special' rum has real body

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 the Hungarian site, the body of a man had been shipped back from Jamaica 20 years ago by his wife in the barrel of rum in order to avoid the cost of an official return. Workers said the rum had a "special taste".
