Bibulous definition

bibulous_definition
Bibulous  Now that is a word that I have never heard before.

As usual, I always look for different words as I read blogs, articles, etc.  I hear many on the podcasts I listen to.

In researching the fact that the inventor of the Pet Rock, Gary Dahl, died recently, one website had an interesting phrase.

In detailing how Dahl came up with the idea of the Pet Rock, the site stated that it all happened in a bar in a “flash of bibulous inspiration.”

Bibulous means excessively fond of drinking alcohol.  Additional definitions include absorbent or spongy.

Origin   1665-1665-Latin bibulus (bib (ere) to drink (cognate with Sanskrit píbati(he) drinks) + -ulus ulous )
