Not feeling so hot today? Kind of wishing it wasn't frowned upon to catch a few winks under your desk or curled up in the stall of the men's room? Vowing to never again consume the amount of alcohol you did over the past three days, so help you god? CNBC knows it's not possible for you to lay off the sauce for more than 12 hours but if you're willing to get real for 1 sec, would like to help. On Worldwide Exchange this morning guest Tina Hedges recommended "prevention" as the best cure for a hangover, which comes in the form of a drink she suggests downing before alcohol called "Mercy," marketed and sold by her firm. Mercy apparently works its magic through "a propriety blend of amino acids, vitamins and minerals" and is available online. If that doesn't sound like something you'd be interested, CNBC's John Carney, who anchor Nicole Lapin billed as "our resident expert of sorts" when it comes to hangovers, offered his his 5-Step Cure, which are as follows:

1. Remember hangovers are physical
2. Sleep in
3. Drink coffee
4. Eat a bacon & egg sandwich
5. Drink a Bloody Mary

Carney stressed that while does not have a license to practice medicine, has tested out the 5-Step Program himself, after picking various tips in the field (#4 came from the Brits he met while studying at Oxford) and 100% vouches for their efficacy.

Not Everyone Thrilled With Rick Kimball's Involvement In Hangover Prevention Company

Last month, we learned that at some point over the summer, Richard Kimball Jr. had left Goldman Sachs. Not knowing his plans, at the time we speculated he was either starting his own hedge fund, as former bankers, particularly ones who've been partners at Goldman, tend to do, or designing a line for La Perla, as people whose adult pool parties and clothing-optional Halloween gatherings that enrage the neighbors also tend to do. Today, however, we were informed that we were wrong on both counts. While owning a hedge fund or designing lingerie seem like they would fall in Kimball's wheelhouse, his new gig is actually more perfect for him than anything would could have imagined. 'Cause when one thinks of Rick Kimball Jr, one thinks PAR-TAY ANIMAL. And when you're a par-tay animal on the level of The Kimballer, you need to take important steps to ensure the party don't stop. Safeguards, if you will. One reason often cited by people who've been engaging in some hard partying for "never doing that again" is the desire to not suffer crippling hangovers the next day. But what if Rick Kimball told you you could party like no one was watching without ever waking up to another hangover again? Would that sound like something you'd be interested in? Because what we're saying is: Rick Kimball is currently running a hangover prevention company.*

Step 9: Put on your reporter hat and ask "Henry James" some questions like, "How much money would say you're losing? What cut do you then get? What is the cheapest woman and what is the most expensive woman? I assume it's by the hour and what is the typical # of hours?" Step 10: Make no attempt to verify source is who he says he is, that his business exists, that you're not being taken for a ride. Step 11: Cut, print.
