* Occasionally the cast of The Goon Show, a 1950's radio programme, would say something along the lines of "round the back for the old milk there", it was explained later that some of the cast would lace bottles of milk with alcohol to hide the fact they would sneak a drink during recording, the fact they would keep the joke in indicates the producers never realised our they were discovered and used it as an in-joke to announce an interval.

* This is actually possible in real life, thanks to Pavlovian conditioning and the placebo effect. An experiment involved giving free beer at a student party, without telling the students the beer was alcohol-free, of course. Afterwards, the party-goers were questioned. Almost all of them said to be at least tipsy or not able to drive safely any more. They were very surprised when an alcohol test was done and it showed they hadn't drunk any alcohol at all. In fact, they showed all traditional behavioral symptoms of drunkenness, which cleared up instantly when they found out they were technically sober. This is also why, in fact, how somebody behaved when drunk can be different depending on the culture; people who believe they're drunk will act like they believe drunks do. Giving people alcohol-free booze just takes it meta. It's even been observed on Wiki/ThisVeryWiki with the ''DrinkingGame/MyImmortal'' drinking game anecdotes. If the stories are to be believed, despite the fact that many of the participants are just drinking water, quite a few people got drunk.
** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_intoxication Water intoxication]] is a real phenomenon. Although in most cases, it's ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin and will make you sick rather than drunk.

** Happened when Bart and Milhouse buy a Squishy that is all syrup, and proceed to get "drunk" from the extreme sugar rush. Bart wakes up the next morning with a hangover, and discovers to his horror that he joined the Junior Campers (Boy Scout [[{{expy}} expies]]) during their binge. His sister offers NoSympathy.
-->'''Lisa:''' <tsk, tsk, tsk> The remorse of the sugar junkie.
** In the same episode, Milhouse (who also drank that same Squishy with Bart) woke up with a profanity shaved into the back of his head.

** Water intoxication can kill you, as its effects arise from diluting your body fluids to such a degree that your neurons can't fire as easily as they ought to. Deaths from hypotonic hydration are most common among sufferers of senile dementia, as they keep going back for a glass of water on hot days, over and over, unable to remember that they've already ingested gallons of it. But for healthy adults, water intoxication rarely happens, and usually occurs when the person drinks huge amounts of water and doesn't let their body dispose of it. And that's why radio stations don't host "Hold your pee to win!" contests anymore...
