Oh christ.

One of my cars gets wrenched on by the guy who maintains the Jaegermeister
934; one of the perks (or perhaps a prerequisite) of the job appears to
be an endless supply of Jagermeister and related banners, glasses and the
like. There's a Jagermeister shrine of sorts in one corner of the shop,
consisting of cases of the stuff, a dedicated refrigerator filled with it,
assorted dirty glasses and a 55-gallon drum which is usually overflowing
with empty Jagermeister bottles (which is a staggering sight).

Every time I collect my car after one of its multi-month sojourns in this
shop there's an obligatory ritual of being offered a shot of this stuff
for the road because, and I quote, "...it's completely harmless...",
an assertion I find (literally) difficult to swallow given that the
stuff seems to be composed of equal parts herbal cough syrup and Draino.
