A dear Aussie friend who consistently drinks us “down under” the table lamented recently that most of the Americans she’s met are simply not piss fit.

In order to correct it, we had to understand exactly what that means.

piss fit: (adj.) able to consume copious amounts of alcohol without becoming sick, incoherent, drowsy, belligerent, dangerous, undressed or weepy; one who is piss fit handles alcohol well

Our further research unearthed this fascinating account of the etymologic relationship between urine and beer.

St. Patty’s Day will be the perfect opportunity to exercise your drinking muscles, your brogue and your vast vocab for describing just how pissed you are: So what’s your favorite (foreign or domestic) drinking slang?
