Ali Spagnola's Synonyms for Drunk is a remarkably catchy song featuring 91 words for "Drunk" in less than one minute. [slyt]

Ironically, not at all something you want to listen to if you're a little hung over.

She missed scuppered.

NOTE: The Youtube link is fine, but going to the artist's site produced the following warning:

Category: Intrusion Prevention
Web Attack: Mass Iframe Injection Website 10
No Action Required,"www.alispagnola.com (64.90.50.144, 80)
www.alispagnola.com/powerhour/

Network traffic from www.alispagnola.com/powerhour/ matches the signature of a known attack. The attack was resulted from \DEVICE\HARDDISKVOLUME3\PROGRAM FILES\INTERNET EXPLORER\IEXPLORE.EXE.


Again, the SLYT is fine, but the links associated resulted in the warning. And it is a pretty funny video.

FWIW if you go on to the webpage there's a statement:
THIS IS NOT A MALICIOUS WEBSITE

Sadly, this website has recently been hacked. However, all the hacked files are gone and it is safe to browse now. I am not the hacker or spammer who infected your website, so do not send me emails about that. I was hacked just like you were, except my website was unfortunately chosen to host the file that all the other compromised sites redirect to.

But then again, you can still send me an email if you think there's something I can help you with.

I would love to memorize this and sing it as a bar trick.

FWIW if you go on to the webpage there's a statement:

I tend not to go searching on websites that produce warnings for disclaimers. I get the warning and I shut it down.

Sorry to hear she got slammed, but it is incumbent upon her to scrub the problem. If my anti-virus is yielding a warning, it is because there is a present issue, not because of some blacklist lookup.

I'm always amazed at how people spend their time.

Her very enjoyable sales pitch for the album and shotglass and usb and lanyard- I'm almost as convinced that this is a good deal as I am unemployed, but not quite.

On further investigation she has uploaded the entire album/game into a youtube playlist. Ali Spagnola is a hero to unemployed college students everywhere.

If you're into this, there's also Benjamin Franklin's 220 Synonyms for Drunk (from "The Drinker's Dictionary") (SLYT).

That same Ben Franklin impersonator (of sorts) has 220 modern synonyms for drunk, and HuffPo has a post on the fellows behind this, as well as a link to Franklin's own writing of The Drinkers Dictionary.

Some British comedian whose name escapes me made the point a while ago that, in England, any noun can be transformed into an adjective for drunkenness. He prompted the audience for nouns, producing words such as “gazeboed” and “bungalowed”.

I'm fairly certain she missed "crapulent".

chavenet, three sheets to the wind is there at about 40 seconds.

That would be Michael McIntyre (youtube link).

She missed "shit faced."

Actually, I think she missed any of them that you can't say on TV, so I guess it was intentional.

Missed shit-faced, one over the eight, arse-holed, newted, steaming, wankered, pickled and commode hugging gutter crawling drunk
