Hangover Brits say full English breakfast is the solution to all their woes • The Register
British partygoers have been asked about their favorite hangover remedies, with frankly bizarre results.
Respondents to the survey, which was commissioned by the makers of Tabasco sauce, said a full English breakfast was by far their favorite way to cope with the aftermath of a heavy night, 32 % approving it.
Podium spots to tackle a dull headache and hairy tongue were filled with strong coffee (26%), which narrowly edged bacon sandwiches (25%) in third in near dead heat.
Other old favorites also featured prominently, with hot buttered toast registering a respectable ninth out of 13%. Beans on toast and scrambled eggs ranked thirteenth and fourteenth, respectively, with 11 percent each.
Among the remaining pain reduction ploys, some could be attributed to the exuberance of youth, such as “an energy drink”, which came in sixth with 15 percent, or “a strawberry milkshake”, which was the 19th most popular response out of 8 percent. hundred.
But questions need to be asked as to the correctness of mind of the seven percent of drinkers who managed to place chicken chow mein in 22nd place, one above the beautifully tasty and nutritious boiled egg with soldiers.
The 3 percent of those polled who suggested a day with a hangover should start better with sweet and sour pork dumplings (30th) clearly suffer from a hangover from something other than alcohol. Maybe crack.
Misery thirsts for company
It has also been suggested that it is best not to face a bastard behind the eyes without help, with 62% of respondents suggesting that the best way to deal with this is to “meet friends for brunch”.
The likelihood that those same friends probably helped you get into that state in the first place is probably what led 44% of respondents to say they enjoyed dissecting the events of the night before, which would be a good topic to discuss. chat during brunch. .
Indeed, 76 percent of those polled said that meeting up to eat with friends the next day was sometimes better than the outing itself. It’s a sad indictment against Britain’s socializing habits if battling a hangover in the company of such grieving friends is more fun than the night that got you there.
The results will certainly raise eyebrows at what people did during the COVID lockdown, because until recently going out for a night out was strictly verboten, as was meeting friends to discuss it afterwards.
The register can only assume that the survey results reflect some level of wishful thinking over the past 18 months or so on the part of those surveyed. While we have no doubt that the long period of forced isolation we just went through would not mutually exclude one from prolonged contemplation of the nature of the hangover and who you would rather experience them with.
