According to the Independent, Woody Harrelson shared a startling story about meeting Micheal J Fox in Thailand in 1989. Harrelson said he and Fox went out and stumbled across a kid initiating a fight “between a cobra and a mongoose.”
Harrelson says the kid found the “orneriest cobra” and threw it in the cage with the mongoose. He says he saw the “craziest fight I’ve ever seen between any animals other than studio executives.”
After the mongoose won the fight, Harrelson says the snake was tied by the tail, and its blood emptied into four glasses of Thai whiskey. Harrelson says drinking the blood and whiskey is called ‘becoming brother to the snake.’
While Harrelson was able to hold the concoction down, Fox did not. He then praised Fox for his courageous fight against Parkinson’s disease.
