This scene from Shattered by Kevin Hearne had me laughing so hard, I was wheezing. It's silly and yet Perun has a point, the American expression really makes no sense. Warning, swearing ahead!



Perun, who had been waiting patiently after managing to wear Oberon out, broke into a wide grin and boomed, "Is settled, then! Let us go into this town at bottom of mountain and get shitbuttered."
Our collective jaws dropped and stared at him (Who knew jaws had eyes for staring? :D ~  Bea). "Excuse me?" I said.
'is this not word? How you say someone is drunk?"
"Oh, you mean shit-faced."
P:erun threw up his hands, thoroughly exasperated, "How is shit on face any better than my word? And why would English-speaking peoples ever think that putting shit on face is like drinking good vodka?"
"Well, I'm not here to judge-"
"Good. Then we go get shitbuttered."

  6. HA HA I adore this series and I can't wait to dig into this one. I always have to listen to this series as I think Luke Daniels is the bomb when narrating. Love the quote.
