220 More Ways to Call Someone a Drunk, According to 'Benjamin Franklin'

220 More Ways to Call Someone a Drunk, According to 'Benjamin Franklin'

The Internet sensation returns, this time with modern-day, reader-submitted terms

A couple of weeks ago, booze-minded history buffs and consumers of Internet ridiculousness were gifted with I Made America's hilarious viral video featuring Benjamin Franklin's 220 synonyms for "drunk."

For the uninitiated, the video stars "Benjamin Franklin," who, for six uninterrupted minutes, recites his list of 220 terms that "signify plainly that a man is drunk." And while quite funny (phrases included "Cherry merry" and "He has been to France"), the terms are no joke — apparently they were first compiled by the real-life Franklin in a 1737 piece for the Pennyslvania Gazette called "The Drinker's Dictionary."

Not surprisingly, in the centuries since that list was written, a great deal more synonyms for "drunk" have been coined. And after watching the video, inspired imbibers chimed in with their own modern-day submissions, supplying the amunition for I Made America's new video, "Benjamin Franklin's 220 Modern Synonyms for Drunk (The New Drinker's Dictionary)."

Check out the video below — you're sure to pick up some new terms to add to your repertoire (like, say, "Charlie Brown-faced").

It is very common to see pets as passengers. However, traveling in automobiles can be extremely dangerous for your family pet – and you. It involves more than just loading the animal in the back seat, especially if you will be driving long distances or plan to be away for a long time. Here are a few road safety tips to help you prepare for a smooth and drive with Fido.

Keep pets safe in a well-ventilated crate or carrier. The crate should be large enough for your pet to stand, sit, lie down and turn around in. Secure the crate so it will not slide or shift in the event of an abrupt stop.

Secure your pet in the car. Just like any passenger, buckle them up.

If you decide to skip the crate, do not allow your pet to ride with his head outside the window. tThe wind can seriously irritate mucous membranes and blow pieces of grit or litter into their eyes. Pets could also be seriously injured by objects (rocks, litter, etc) as you drive down the road.

It is always recommended that the dog be in the back seat or storage area of the car, especially if the car has airbags. While airbags save lives of people, they can seriously injure pets.

Keep food, a bowl, leash, a waste scoop, plastic bags, grooming supplies, medication and first-aid, and any travel documents.

Be sure to bring bottled water and avoid feeding your pet in a moving vehicle. Drinking water from an area he is not used to could result in stomach troubles.

Never leave your animal alone in a parked vehicle. On a hot day, even with the windows open, a car heat up very quickly. Likewise, in cold weather, a car can act as a refrigerator, holding in the cold.

Last but not least, always watch the road. As cute as they are, do not let your pet distract you while you’re driving.
