  • "Today's word comes from Late Latin crapulentus

    `drunk', an adjective built on the noun, crapula `intoxication'. The root of 'crapula' is the same as the one in Greek kraipale `hangover.' It is totally unrelated to 'crap', which derives from the name of a losing throw in the dice game, 'craps', which originated among the French-speaking Cajuns of Louisiana."
