Fun With

(drunkenness) + (boredom) = fun with

I'm not sure if any of you will find this as hilarious as I did, but I started off searching the definition of "ne'er-do-well" because I thought it was a funny word, and it turned into quite the adventure. I've taken the liberty of highlighting the funniest parts of the definitions.

1. an idle, worthless person; a person who is ineffectual, unsuccessful, or completely lacking in merit; good-for-nothing.
—Synonyms 1. idler, loafer, wastrel

adj : without merit; "a sorry horse"; "a sorry excuse"; "a lazy no-count, good-for-nothing goldbrick"; "the car was a no-good piece of junk"

1. a wasteful person; spendthrift.
2. Chiefly British.
b. a waif; abandoned child.
c. an idler or good-for-nothing.

...and the best word I've heard in a long time...

1. a person, esp. a child, who has no home or friends.

I can't believe that's an official definition for a word. A child who has no home or friends...that's terribly funny. Yeah, being home for break leaves me with way too much free time.
