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.
