Yo, I have a lot of drunk conversations. Don't judge me. I'm hitting the tail end of my twenties so, like, it's not AS bad as it was. Still I drink a lot. Which brings me to the subject of the Irish.
They are totally, seriously, probably associated with drinking more than the term alcoholic itself. Like, Ireland pretty much owns inebriation. Personally, I'm a fan. Except for St. Patrick's Day. However that is a much longer blog post that includes a story of a sober me yelling at a ferris wheel for being green in a rather crowded area of Las Vegas.
So yeah, what I'm getting at is that when Irish folks have fun they use the word "Craic". Like "Where's the Craic?" or "Man, that was great Craic last night!". Like Craic is totally like Crack, tho. And this is mostly info that I got from a drunk conversation but I looked at wikipedia so I'm pretty sure I'm right. This brings me back to a conversation that I had with my girlfriend last year that I sort of turned into a bit that I use on stage. She asked me "What is piff?"
Now, if you don't know what piff is...it's Crack! Now you know, nigga. However, piff (and the word crack to an extent) is also used like the word dope. For example, a brother that has a tall tee haunting his closet may say "Yo...this new Wop album is PIFF!". Which means he had a good Craic listening to Gucci Mane.
In summation, Irish people should stop talking about how they were slaves. It wasn't really the same thing. However, we can all agree that Craic is Piff, but you shouldn't smoke crack...
*and it went on like this for the rest of the night*
