Scientists at the University of Bergen in Norway believed that they could improve the rate that leeches suck blood by dipping them in beer beforehand. They had also brought garlic and sour cream. Researchers then proceeded to dip some of the leeches in Guinness. Then each researcher placed a different leech on his or her own arm. However, the drunken leeches did not see improved suckage. In fact, they couldn’t even maintain their grip, but simply swayed their bodies back and forth. Bizarrely, it was the sour cream leeches that showed increased sucking abilities — but only after they’d been removed from the arm. The garlic leeches just keeled over and died.
