If you partied too much to celebrate never fear- here are some unusual hangover cures- maybe the most appropriate for the Year of the Rabbit is.....

"Rabbit turd tea

was popular among dyspeptic cowboys. Presumably cowboys would heat up a cup of whatever liquid they had and stir in a few rabbit pellets. Perhaps the intention was simply to make cowboys think twice the next time they entered a Wild West saloon:

Is tonight's drink of whiskey really worth tomorrow's drink of feces?"
