A question I never thought I'd ask:
"Did last night include me drinking something black and sticky[1] out of a glass skull[2]?"

Much less, receive the answer, "Yes, you did. So did quite a few of us."

[1] A Finnish[3] pre-mixed cocktail drink called Salmiakki Koskenkorva. It tastes of largely of licorice which means that you totally fail to notice that it is also 40% ABV

[2] I don't know who it belonged to, but it was a very cool bottle.

[3] One of the rules I learned very early on in the SCA is "beware of Finns offering drinks". Lovely people, great fun to party with, but some of the concoctions they offer can be wicked. Aside from the above-mentioned, there is also one that tastes rather like orange soda. Until you try to stand up :)

I'm usually more wary of the Icelandic drinks at SCA events myself

Or, as I said in re Civil Wars:

"If some Finns have a party in the woods, and nobody remembers it, did it really happen?"
