“What’s the best thing for a hangover?"/"Drink loads the night before.”

A joke about hangovers is:

Q: What’s the best thing for a hangover?
A: Drink loads the night before.


The question really meant how to “cure” a hangover, but the answer provided how to “get” a hangover. The riddle was posted on the newsgroup alt.tasteless.jokes on March 14, 1997.
