  • I'm thinking this and perennial client of the malt shop of destiny need to elope and make a list of their own. Drunken Travels?

  • Hmmmmz. Bibulous sailors and whatnot seem to have generated a few terms, e.g. With one’s jib well bowsed, under full steam, walking a Virgina fence, so there's some stuff there.

  • psst, bilby... is that Virginia fence, or Virgina fence?

    July 2, 2009

  • Bllargh! Yourright.

    Drunktionary equates walking a Virginia fence with "Making Virginia fence - A Virginia fence is a zigzag fence. Hence, walking in a zigzag fashion. Noted by Benjamin Franklin."

    I have a sticky keyboard at the moment. I have to bash each key to make sure each character comes up and at this time o' night, g'lord, gimme strenth 'n a walkin' stick.

  • Interesting... those crooked fences aren't just in Virginia (though I guess they could have been traditionally Virginian in Franklin's time), but they can still be seen at historic sites all over the place, particularly nineteenth-century ones... In Gettysburg, PA, when I was growing up the tour guides were still calling those fences "cow-high and pig-tight." Hee.

  • Yes,c_b. I first saw this type of fence in Gettysburg and have ever since associated them with battlegrounds. "Cow-high and pig-tight." *snort*

  • That's funny. I wonder if you were there around the same time I was. Hey! Maybe we've actually met, and just don't know it! ;)

  • It's possible. Six degrees of separation and all that.

    July 3, 2009

  • Wait--I was there too! Maybe we all had coffee together!
