    Urban legend or not, I actually saw this happen. It was a bottle of
poteen (Irish moonshine) in the teachers loo (situated like an outhouse in
the schoolyard), the chain-smoking Gaelic teacher was the victim, and the
whole event was witnessed by the entire student body of the Nenagh Christian
Brothers School at recess. A truly remarkable and unforgettable event. That
poteen must have been close to 200 proof! The teacher recovered physically,
but his dignity was forever in tatters.

    MRAC - neither I nor my Audi run on poteen.
