Slizzard

adjective Blending
Very drunk or intoxicated. This word formation came about in an unusual way. The word comes at the end of a line of lyrics in a hip hop song, so it needed to rhyme with the word that ended the preceding line, which happened to be 'blizzard'. Since there really are no words that mean 'wasted' or 'extremely drunk' and rhyme with blizzard, the writer made up a new one that fit the song: 'slizzard', which is a blend of 'slammed' (slang for very drunk) and 'blizzard'. It is, therefore, very informal and used primarily among those who listen to hip hop, but since the song has since climbed to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 music chart, the usage of the word has probably spread to anyone who listens to that type of music and/or pop/hip hop/rap radio station and can be used to describe anyone in a state of alcoholic excess.
