#11 Sh!t-faced



Well we tend to use this word in a certain way, the origins of the word are certainly a lot different. Originally, it meant young faced and it comes from Scotland where in the 19th century it was used to describe people that looked younger than their actual age. It does mean that if you had boyish looks, then you were permanently sh!t-faced when of course now it means to be drunk.
