As seen on: “Freaks and Geeks”
What you’ll need: Cayenne pepper, pickle juice, mustard, salt, sardines, vinegar, soy sauce, chili, dairy creamer, jelly, and after-dinner mints
1. Put a dash of this, a glob of that into a blender (it’s not an exact science)
2. Blend until it look likes a diarrhea and vomit cocktail
In the “Freaks and Geeks”’ episode (“Tricks and Treats”), the cold open shows Bill betting Sam and Neil that he’ll drink anything for $10, as long as it’s “something you can eat,” meaning nothing from the bathroom or garage. No detergents or cut-up bits of sponge, either. The two boys throw all the above-mentioned items into a blender, creating an unholy brown liquid. This was the recipe no one wanted to try but everyone wanted to make it—it was a lot of fun lining up the bottles and tins in order, and squeezing and shaking them into the blender.
But that’s where the fun stopped, because my god did it taste awful. Matt filled up three shot glasses with the sludge, and the three guys (Nadia had some after) tried to man up, but only ended up drinking about half (or less, in my case) of the content in the small glasses. The mustard was the most overwhelming ingredient, followed by the fish-stink of the sardines. The spicy taste was lodged in our throats for hours after, like a wad of gum you just can’t swallow. It was LITERALLY one of the worst things I’ve ever tasted, and I’ve eaten at Arby’s. Ten bucks was underselling the dare—you’d have to pay me at least $15 to try this concoction again. Inflation, man.
I’m off to the side, gagging.
