Our Crack Tongue & Groove

hungoverhell.jpg What fresh hell is this?

Luxury British nightwear and slipper brand, Pretty You London, have just launched a pair of pyjamas that, they claim, will cure your hangover. Is this the breakthrough that we’ve all been looking for? (Spoilers: no.)

I recently filled in one of those ‘Have You Got A Drink Problem?’ type surveys. I had to answer 10 questions along the lines of: “After drinking have you ever woken up and regretted what you did the previous night?” and: “Has your memory ever blanked out after drinking?” I answered the questions as truthfully as my shame would allow and then flipped to the conclusions. These were: “If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then you may have a drink problem.” Hang on, I thought. Any? I was expecting it to say: “If you answered yes to ALL of these questions then you may have a drink problem.” I answered yes to seven of them. Still, over the years I’ve acquired a good working knowledge of hangover cures. Basically, there aren’t any. (The worst is ‘hair of the dog’, which is like trying to pay off a loan shark by borrowing from a bigger, harder hitting, loan shark). Which all brings us round to these pyjamas. Apparently they’re made from 100% bamboo (that’s what it says here) with the fabric, “keeping wearers cool and comfortable with its innovative properties, trapping warm air in its fibres, whilst also pulling moisture away from the skin, allowing it to evaporate.” In other words: fine if you sweat a lot in bed, rubbish if you’re continually throwing up in it.
