Drunkenness

It is said that if children eat owl's eggs they will never be addicted to strong drinks.

“Tous les oiseaux lui [i.e. to Bacchus]étaient agréable, excepté la chouette dont les oeufs avaient la vertu de rendre les enfans qui les mangeaient ennemis du vin.” —Noel: Dictionnaire de la Fable, vol. i. p.206.
