Royal Tasters

Back in the days when 'Divine Right', monarchs, thrones and scepters were hip, partying could be dangerous! Kings, Queens and courts deployed poison proofing defense called 'Royal Tasters'.

The tasty thing about the gig was that royal taster got to sample all the drinks and munchies before blue bloods got to dine. The down side is that sometimes royal tasters got poisoned and died.

Partying in the New Millennium can be risible, risque and risky too. So much pharmaceuticals are out there - just waiting to ply hapless hotties so evil minders can have their way or ways with them.

Or worse.

When partying - travel in packs - have a designated driver and deploy a royal taster.
