Terms Of Intoxication-- Or The Value Of A College Education

An observation/comment made by the college age son, on various terms for intoxication....
He has realized, (yes, it took 2 years of college to determine this... and this is why I pay for college) that if you add "ed" to any word it will give you a state or level of intoxication. ie Cronk(ed), Hammer(ed), Table(d) etc....
Why does this surprise me, hmm well it really doesn't considering that A. he is my son, B. he is in college, C. I know that there is a C., but do to brain fade I can't remember what it is... or maybe I was cronked last night!

Way back when I was in college we determined levels of inebriation by the number of times "ed" was added to a word; for example you were pretty far gone if you were "hammerededed".

If you can still add and extra "ed" to the word, then you didn't drink enough....

You know you're totally hammeredededed though when your friends' mouths start looking like Mr. Ed's did when he was speaking.

Just sayin'.
