Exclamation and they say barqs has bite

CHINA - When arriving at the bottom of a tequila bottel after
a long night with the guys, someone is always dared to take
down the worm. However, very rarely, if ever, does the worm
fight back. In China, alcoholic drinks such as rice wine
contain preserved snakes or other creatures in place of the
ever-popular worm. As a man named Li cracked open a bottle
during his lunch break, the pickled snake lunged out of the
bottle and bit him in the neck. The victim was taken to a
hospital where he was not believed to be in any danger. Ac-
cording to the Xin Bao newspaper, the bottle's stopper was
made from wood or cork and allowed air in the vessel, helping
the snake to survive in the bottle for a year.
