Every Saturday morning, This is Hell! offers our listeners a Hangover Cure to help the poor saps exorcise the evil spirits they poured into their drink hole the previous evening.

However, we do not take any responsibility for your use of these remedies.

From our man in Budpaest, Todd Williams, citing the Ananova.com article headlined, “Proof that bacon butties cure hangovers,” is a bacon sandwich.
The article quotes a science development manager at the Centre for Life in Newcastle, UK, saying, “Food doesn’t soak up the alcohol, but it does increase your metabolism – helping you to deal with the after-effects of over-indulgence. So food will often help you feel better. Bread is high in carbohydrates and bacon is full of protein, which breaks down into amino acids.
Your body needs these amino acids, so eating them will make you feel good. Bingeing on alcohol depletes neurotransmitters too, but bacon contains a high level of amines which tops these up, giving you a clearer head.
If you’ve got amino acids and reducing sugars at a heat above 150 degrees centigrade, it kickstarts the Maillard Reaction in the pan. That means lots of lovely smells are released and it’s this which draws us in. I know of three vegetarians who have been broken by the smell of bacon.”
In celebration of Passover, is a can of gefilte fish. For you goyim, that’s ground pike or carp rolled into balls then canned. Really, any canned fish will do. But because it’s Passover, this morning’s hangover cure was gefilte fish.

The ancient ayurvedic practice known as Pancha Karma Cleansing Therapy. The therapy is supposed to thoroughly purify and heal the body and mind. The treatment involves a days-long series of cleanses including a special vegetarian diet, massage, sweat therapy, and purges. After days of expelling toxins from what feels like every cell in your body, you’ll emerge from pancha karma with an allegedly stronger immune system. While the programs in India can be hard-core, lasting more than a week and sometimes including bloodletting, many ayurvedic centers in the U.S. offer easier, less torturous-sounding versions.

The ancient Chinese remedy of eating horse brains the morning after drinking too much.

So, more accurately, today’s hangover cure is Masala Chai.
From listener Brian G …

Kazu Tateishi’s canned vegetable soup made with the fibrous root burdock.
However, the AP reports “Tateishi claimed that eating it could cure cancer and diabetes, lower blood pressure, and fix up a hangover. He says the soup made his bones so strong, he once let someone run him over with a four-ton truck and came away with nothing but a few tire marks. He made a fortune selling the soup and even got an endorsement from Japan’s Prime Minister.
Problem is, doctors at Kumamoto University’s School of Medicine declared Tateishi’s claims for his soup to be ‘insane’ and Asahi magazine discovered that Tateishi is not a doctor, as he claimed, but a cab driver.
Tateishi is currently in jail, charged with illegally practicing medicine.”
However, people still love the soup and claim it cures all their ills, including hangovers.

Down in one, plunge through an ice hole into a river (a cold shower will do, just) and then eggs, bacon, fried bread and tea (not coffee) and you are ready for anything.”

from Trevor in Long Island City: drink some apple juice and eat a big ol’ greasy cheeseburger. Trevor adds, “If you are vegetarian, like me, you are screwed. If you are a librarian, like me, read a book with a headache until it is past noon, and then begin drinking again, as grumpily as possible. Emulate drunken literary dandies like Christopher “Hitch” Hitchens (version 1.O) or manic, Slovenian Lacanian Marxists and wow friends and relishes with your learned opinions of counterculture, dissent, international relations, and Shakira. Then have a nap.”
the following two are from listener Wally and ‘Sanford & Son.’ In episode #121: “Fred’s hangover remedy part 2: Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, prune juice, tomato juice, salt, cream, tobasco sauce and eggs” …
… also from “Sanford & Son” episode #63, season 4: ‘Fred’s patented hangover remedy makes its first appearance. It consists of raw eggs, tomato juice, salt and pepper, prune juice, worcestershire sauce and a “smidgen” of vodka.

we hate to use this as a cure, but we have had so many listeners over the years that have suggested this cure and we’ve put it off for far too long. Yes, apparently many of our listeners believe that antihangover stuff Chaser actually works.
The active ingredient is activated charcoal which we have used as a cure in the past. So, instead of using Chaser, just look for some cure that has activated charcoal as an ingredient.

Wally points out that Cornetto is referenced in both the movies “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” by acor Simon Pegg as a hangover cure.
By the way, Pegg will be starring in the new Star Trek prequel movie as a young Scotty.

activated calcium carbonate and activated charcoal. These are two of the ingredients found in one of the most popular over the counter hangover cures. We’re not telling you which one because we aren’t gonna do a commercial for them. But let it be known, activated calcium carbonate and activated charcoal can combine into a successful hangover cure.
from The Independent … “Taurine is a key ingredient in the controversial energy drink Red Bull, which has long been maligned by health experts. The Swedish National Food Administration warned people to avoid drinking it with alcohol or after heavy exercise, France banned it, Norway classified it as a medicine and for a long time, only pharmacies in Japan would sell it. But some scientists now believe taurine can help reverse liver damage, by counteracting the build-up of fat in the liver caused by heavy drinking. So, although research is still at an early stage, it may turn out that opting for a Red Bull and vodka as the night wears on may not be such a bad idea.”

As it was New Year’s – and these cures are a bit lame – we offered two cures.
The first is, drink light beer first thing in the morning.
See? Not so good.
So how about water before passing out, fresh juice or sweet tea the next morning, followed by a hearty breakfast? Producer Drew Colglazier actually suggested combining the cures.

The exercise will do you good, and – on the assumption that you enjoy sex – you will feel toned up emotionally. Warnings: (1) if you are in bed with somebody you should not be in bed with, and have in the least degree a bad conscience about this, abstain. Guilt and shame are prominent constituents of the Metaphysical Hangover, and will certainly be sharpened by indulgence on such an occasion. (2) For the same generic reason, do not take the matter into your own hands if you awake by yourself.

The Acid Bomb
A “Sputnik.” Pour the following ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Strain into a cocktail glass.
