Honey and having an awesome time have been inextricably linked since the dawn of

creation. Almost every prehistoric culture on Earth has considered honey a gift from the gods, or at the very least a fantastic topping for pancakes. Its ancient esteem should come as no surprise seeing as how it must have taken a man (or woman, we're not here to play favorites) with manhood the size of the Bronze Age to look at a swarming beehive and decide the bastards were hiding something tasty. This was possibly the same person that first decided to eat a pineapple.

"Bet you five bucks you won't bite into that thing."

Honey has some bodacious pharmaceutical qualities; boosting the immune system, preventing cancer, soothing cold and flu symptoms and tasting wonderful on crumpets. It's also a good preservative and we've found pots of honey in China and Egypt that are still in edible condition after thousands of years. But that shit isn't why it's on this list.

No, the golden treat takes another spin if the bees responsible have been munching down on Atropa belladona, also known as deadly nightshade, which is neither a misnomer nor a clever name. Belladonna is one of the most toxic plants on the planet. But when synthesized through the bee's natural chemical factory you end up with psychoactive nightshade honey (which totally sounds like the name of a bad industrial band but in actuality is probably worse for your health).

Still, not as bad as Nic Cage Honey.

In small doses, nightshade honey is known to cause euphoria and altered perception, notably enhancing perception of geometric shape, which we assume means that you will start to see the world as being made of blocky polygons like in Virtua Fighter.

Unsurprisingly, toxic honey is bottled as a liquor in some regions of the world, further solidifying the notion of poisoning to the brink of insanity as "having a good time."
