'Twas I, the loathesome Squirrel Hunter, posing as Mme Git, and impersonating her voice as it were, that rum-inated over the preservation of corposes .......

Oh I remember that. It was funny. Here it is, from the preparations forum.


I'll Bet You Have some Rum for Preserving Corpses ....

The British Chancellory of the Admiralty in Trafalgar Square maintains records which establish that General Pakenham and Admiral Lord Nelson, upon maritime death in the line of duty, were packed in casks of rum and shipped home to Dover, the better to preserve their tissues intact and to enhance the flavor in the even t other supplies ran low en route.

I'll bet you have some rum on hand that you may want to keep at the ready for similar medicinal >hic< purposhes.

Um, this thread was started by Squirrel Hunter (see the whiskers twitching?). Here's the explanation:


Old Git --

The thought of eating the Admiral PICKLED in rum never once crossed my mind!!!! ..... I swear. I do belive this calls for a new thread, and you as the Hostess with the Mostess should begin it.

My source for the info on Pakenham was "The British at the Gates" by Robin somebody (can't put my hand on it right now) and the info on Nelson came from Sweetie, who knows just about everything historical and has a prodigious memory. He read it "somewhere." But I also know from growing up in England that important officers were shipped home thus. Hey, it was before refrigeration and they couldn't very well cremate bodies on those wooden ships. One's mind boggles when thinking of the funerals. . . The fumes!

There are some good recipes (not involving corpses) on that thread.
