Scots have that many words, because when you are drunk it's hard to pronounce things correctly.
 
2009-09-08 09:01:30 AM  
I am now going to use moroculous as often as possible.
 
2009-09-08 09:28:30 AM

Little known fact: The Scottish accent is actually a Northern Ireland accent while very drunk.*


*May not actually be true.
 
2009-09-08 12:06:46 PM  
Stupid headline is stupid.

There are PLENTY of Inuit and other native words for snow.

Here comes the linguistics. (new window)

Benjamin Franklin, Renaissance Man, compiled a list of euphemisms for inebriation called The Drinker's Dictionary (scroll down)

My favorite: He sees the Bears.
 
2009-09-08 12:15:47 PM  
I don't know about all that ...... but I understand there may be fifty ways to leave your lover.
 
2009-09-08 12:23:10 PM  
I've also seen 'Equimaux' in early 20th century texts.
 
2009-09-08 12:28:37 PM  
foxed ... but that is old school
 
2009-09-08 12:34:43 PM  
That "article" really annoyed me. If I ever meet the author, I might start punching faces.

I probably wouldn't even realize I was talking to the author of that particular article; but I can imagine I would be talking to one of the more annoying inhabitants of the planet.

Skiers have 20 words for snow.

Having a date with Rosey Palm

Jacking off
jerking off

Thanks for the entertaining link.

Yeah, TFA is a pile of fail.

By the way, just as an Eskimo might have a whole bunch of words for snow, and a Scotsman might have a lot of words for drunk, the Hungarians have a lot of words for poo.


And as for the first question in TFA alleging that cats having no practical purpose, it is still extremely common today for people to rely on cats for controlling vermin and pests. And I think being an amusing and loving companion is a good a purpose as any. Hell, I've had friends who really had no "practical use," but their company and good nature made them worthwhile people. Judging the worth of other beings merely on what kind of "milk, meat, wool or labor" they can provide you is kind of sociopathic.

The Brtish can use absolutely anything to mean drunk, it's all in the way you say it.

CrankMyBlueSax: I don't know about all that ...... but I understand there may be fifty ways to leave your lover.

Or fifty ways to love your lever, if the good folks in morals and standards at CBS are giving you a hard time about performing a song with the word 'lover' featured predominately in it on a children's program.
