    Ben Franklin's Euphemisms for "Drunk"

    Ben Franklin once compiled over 220 synonyms for "drunk". What an awesome patriot.

    Who says history is boring...?

    The Writings of Benjamin Franklin, Volume II: Philadelphia, 1726 - 1757 -- Pennsylvania Gazette, 1736 - 1737

    I kind of like "Crump Footed" and "Pungey". I will definitely be working these into my vernacular.

    Franklin was a drunk and skirt chaser. He also tried to be a polygamist (sp?) with some old skirt in Paris. He had asked her to marry several times.

    Re: Ben Franklin's Euphemisms for "Drunk"

    Is it likely today that he would be listed somewhere on 'the spectrum' in the neighborhood of Asperger's? or just a crazy old white dude? Wasn't his IQ estimated around 160?

    Re: Ben Franklin's Euphemisms for "Drunk"

    Is it just me, or do some of these appear to be a euphemism for something other than getting sloshed? Some of them appear somewhat naughty.

    The Todd: "I'd like to double your entendre."

    Impossible for Ben to be that smart. To wit: no where on that list is "Podolacked"

    A lot of those sound like something Abe Simpson would say.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.
