An absolutely foul shot: Made from an egg yolk and Bailey's Irish Cream Liqueur, commonly served in a double shot glass. Meant to represent an embryo and semen that would be used to make a Homunculus in Alchemy.
Ten seconds after my man Dave downed the homunculus, he chundered all over the carpet.

a tiny fully formed individual that (according to the discredited theory of preformation) is supposed to be present in the sperm cell

Hippocrates and Aristotle proposed the idea of what they called pangenes, which they thought were tiny pieces of body parts. They thought that pangenes came together to make up the homunculus, a tiny pre-formed human that people thought grew into a baby. In the 1600s, the development of the microscope brought the discovery of eggs and sperm. Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, using a primitive microscope, thought he saw the homunculus curled up in a sperm cell. His followers believed that the homunculus was in the sperm, the father “planted his seed,” and the mother just incubated and nourished the homunculus so it grew into a baby. On the other hand, Regnier de Graaf and his followers thought that they saw the homunculus in the egg, and the presence of semen just somehow stimulated its growth. In the 1800s, a very novel, “radical” idea arose: both parents contribute to the new baby, but people (even Darwin, as he proposed his theory) still believed that these contributions were in the form of pangenes.

A homunculus is a failed attempt to revive a dead person using the art of alchemy in the anime Full Metal Alchemist. (This practice is often referred to as human transmutation, and is forbidden.) There is some ambiguity whether or not a homunculus is truly a reincarnation of that person. A homunculus is not a human and supposedly has no soul. However, Lust and other homunculi are able to recall events from their past life.

Homunculi are nearly indestructible and do not age. In addition, each one has a special, deadly power. For example, Lust can extend her nails to use as a deadly weapon and Sloth can transform from a solid state to that of a liquid. Homunculi become paralyzed when in close proximity to parts of their former bodies. The resulting paralysis or loss of consciousness often aids in one of the few ways to kill a homunculus: sealing via an alchemical array. This causes the homunculus to expel the red stones which fuel them, and results in the body of the homunculus dissolving and/or weakening. Most homunculi are incapable of using alchemy, but there are exceptions.
