(noun): A state of extreme drunkenness.
Origin: mid 17th century, from late Latin crapulentus ‘very drunk,’ from Latin crapula ‘inebriation,’ from Greek kraipale ‘drunken headahce.’
No, I did not make this up. The blog was getting a little too Buddhist. We needed a crapulent* entry today. (Here’s a good site to learn more exotic–but not necessarily crapulent–words.)
*adjective: of or relating to the drinking of alcohol or drunkenness.
