I have some of the most creative and funny Twitter followers out there. For this reason, awhile ago when I needed some good hangover cures, I turned to them and asked this:

Looking for good hangover tips for my blog, got any?

Just as I’d hoped, Twitter pulled through and supplied me with the good, the bad and the just plain weird.

The good hangover tips included the usual ones your Aunt Marge would give you while hemming her long floral skirt:

Get plenty of sleep
Take your Advil before bed
Stay hydrated
Eat a nice big meal before your night out
Juice an apple, cucumber, lemon, ginger, garlic, kale, spinach and beets and drink it down

Some of the bad answers were more reflective of what your unshaven Uncle Tony would tell you while shotgunning a Budweiser:

Wake up and immediately eat a Big Mac while pounding a fountain Coke
Hair of the dog: Make a Bloody Mary and keep going
Hell, never stop drinking and stick with vodka – good vodka.

Just when I thought it couldn’t get any scarier, the weird ones started coming in:

Drink lots of pickle juice
A baked potato before bed
Cold meatballs dipped in yogurt

And my personal favorite that was (surprisingly) written by more than one person:

Rub lemon in your armpit

Just when I think I’ve heard them all, you guys never cease to amaze me. What’s YOUR go-to hangover remedy?
