Hannah Hart of “My Drunk Kitchen” responds to many misconceptions about drinking… thus, alleviating my need to do so next week (as many of you have asked me to!)

I will, however, add these comments:

Myth 06: No, that’s not a worm, it’s a caterpillar, the larval form of a butterfly. And that sucker LOVES to eat the Agave Plant, where tequila comes from. The “worm” in the bottle is the Tequila manufacturer’s way of getting even with the little crop-destroying bastards.

Myth 22: No. Just no.  No acetaminophen (Tylenol) and NO ibuprofen (Advil/Motrin)!  That is, of course, unless you like liver damage and destroying your stomach lining.  Go with plain old aspirin.

Myth 24/25: While TIME is the only thing that will cure a hangover, you can help your poor ravaged body by drinking coconut water. The electrolytes in coconut water are needed to replace all the electrolytes you lost while urinating and sweating away all that toxic booze.
Coconut waterNOT Gatorade. (The unnecessary sugars in the G stuff slow down your recovery and it doesn’t have even 1/4 of the electrolytes that coconut water has.

And know you know.

P.S.: “Toxic Jock Syndrome”… LOL!
