There were once three men who did nothing but drink from morning till night.
They were always the drunkest people in the tavern, and would argue and fight with other customers over the smallest thing. Everyone in the town knew to keep well out of their way.
Safe to say that the men were roundly despised. But this was of no concern to them, as they continued to drink all day, grumbling and bickering in their cups.
Having lost their jobs at the mine where they worked, the men had no source of income. The only things they owned were their well-used hammers, which no-one wanted to buy.
Their drunkenness and destitution was a cause of great concern to anyone who saw them, but the men themselves seemed happy enough.
This happiness would not last, however. Before long, the men had spent the last of their money.
Penniless, the three men lay in the middle of the street, sweating in the scorching midday sun. They realized that none of them had eaten anything in a week. It slowly began to dawn on them that they were starving to death.
One of the men, sure that death was near, made a final, solemn wish. Foolish as it sounds, there was only one thing he wanted.
One last drink.
Just as the man was making his wish, a gleaming white chalice appeared, and began to speak to the three of them, soundlessly.
"I can give you what you want. For a price..."
The three of them used the last of their strength to indicate their agreement. At that moment, they would have given anything at all for one more drink.
The three men lost conciousness.
When the first man came round, he noticed that his mouth was full of the incomparable taste of mead. Though this was a bliss unlike any other, he couldn't help but have his doubts.
There were no bottles anywhere nearby... Where had this mead come from?
At first he thought he might be dreaming, but it was all too real to be a dream.
In the end, he realized there was only one explanation. He had been sweating profusely in the sweltering heat... And as the sweat had dribbled into his mouth, it had turned into mead.
"Perhaps this is heaven..." the man thought. Looking around him, however, he could see this wasn't the case.
The three men were all in the same situation, and all were deliriously happy. From now on, they could drink as much mead as they liked, whenever they liked.
Though it seemed that all their dreams had come true, the three did have one more thing to consider. How could they produce enough sweat to get drunk, and how could they store it?
After a moment's consideration, one of the men had an idea.
He lead the others to the back of the tavern, where the empty casks were kept. Using his hammer to prise open a cask, he placed it snugly over his torso.
Not only did the man start sweating, all the sweat he produced was stored in the cask.
Indeed, not a single drop of sweat was wasted. His two friends soon followed suit, eager to catch their sweaty beads of joy.
Three men with casks covering their bodies is a truly bizarre sight, and people started going to even greater lengths to avoid them.
After a while, the casks they were wearing began to fuse with their bodies.
It was also around this time that the three men began to realize that they were producing less mead than before. That was a big problem, and they frantically checked their cask-covered bodies to try and discover what was wrong.
They soon realized that their bodies were much smaller than they used to be. It was as though the mead they had been drinking had been drained out of them, leaving them shriveled. The three men started to panic. Not because they were scared of their bodies shrivelling up...
But because their mead supply was running out. For them, that would be a fate worse than death.
The men thought hard about their predicament. How could they get more mead?
One of them had an idea. They had been given the power to drink sweat as though it was mead. Nobody had said that the sweat had to come from their own bodies...
Eager to try out their new theory, the three of them abducted a hapless traveler, stuffing him into one of their casks.
Naturally, the traveler began to sweat. One of the men tentatively tasted some of the liquid he produced. It had the rich, sweet taste of mead. It might be best not to detail what happened to the traveler after that...
The three men now had an unlimited source of mead. A "source" that could be found walking around the streets of any city or town...
The three of them slurped mead until their faces were plastered with broad, drunken grins.
Before long, they had lost all ability to reason. Not that they themselves realize this, of course. Their monstrous transfiguration is of no concern.
They continue to prowl the streets at night, anxious to slake their thrist.Living only for their next drink...
