Go Super to Listen Go Super!

Language is full of interesting bits of history. Sometime in the past, it was thought that if you got sick from a dog bite, you could be cured by hair of the dog that bit you. No one knew it at the time, but a great drinking idiom was born.

After a night of extreme alcohol consumption, you will not feel well. You may have a hangover. A little more alcohol can sometimes help you feel better. So what made you sick also cures you, just like the story of the hair of the dog.

There is no dog involved in this hangover cure. Of course, Jason doesn’t know that when Jeff tells him some hair of the dog will make him feel better. He finds a dog, and just when he is about to eat some hair, Ella saves him by explaining that hair of the dog just means more alcohol in the morning.

Do you have a favorite hangover cure? Or does hair of the dog work for you?

举例

1. Examples - Hear some example sentences.

Go Super to Listen Go Super!

“It looks like you drank too much last night, why don’t you try some hair of the dog.”

“I don’t get hangovers. I just need to save some alcohol for the morning. A little hair of the dog tomorrow and I’ll be just fine.”

“The best hangover cure I know is some hair of the dog that bit you. A little more alcohol the next day will make you feel better!”
