or should it be:
These are the abbreviation/acronyms that should stand for "Check It Out Dude, I'm Wasted" and "Hey Everybody, I'm Drunk"
Many of us have in some form or other made the above pronouncements. Maybe we were laughing out loud with the windows rolled down in our pickup truck while peeling out of the parking lot of Walt's Tavern or maybe we stumbled into the barracks at 2 am, turned on all the lights and howled like a wolf or shouted "yeah, baby!" for all to hear (I may myself have engaged in such antics). I swear there even used to be thread in the FAC once called something like the "neverending I'm drunk thread" devoted to this purpose.
Generally, but not always, this type of behavior is exhibited by younger folks in their teens/20's. The web is is filled to the brim with millions of photos documenting 'drunken times' - usually showing a group of people with drink in hand and in various states of sobriety.... like this -
My question: WHY is this such a seemingly universal expression, drawing attention to one's self in this state? Why do folks feel compelled to do this?
NOTE: No one is judging here, just trying to better understand the causes behind this phenomenon.
