Shitfaced

adjective; compounding
The quality of being extremely intoxicated by alcohol, exceeding the regular term drunk Shitfaced has come into the language by form of compounding the vulgar term shit with faced. It relates to the amount of alchol that an individual has consumed yet it is most noted for the degree that it is able to express. Although the term drunk is often used, shitfaced refers to an individual that has surpassed the level of being drunk and is completely incoherent and out of control. It is for this very reason that I believe the term was originally coined, in order to mark a distinction between the behavior of an individual. It is much more effective to describe someone who is highly inebriated by saying they are "totally shitfaced" verus "totally drunk". The term is primarily used by high school and college students and is not acceptable to use with older adults because of its negative connotation (because of the presence of shit). The word is also metaphorical because it implies that once a person reaches the level of being shitface, he/she has no control over their facial expressions, and their face essentially looks corpse-like, and ugly (like shit).
