Spin Cycle: Let's Get Chalked

This weeks Spin Cycle is about catch phrases. This is a post that I made back in August of 2008, but felt that I should re-post this since it shows the actual birth of a catch phrase.

I have found that a lot of terms that describe being inebriated are quite graphic:

Let's get plowed
—getting so drunk that you feel like you have been plowed under the ground.
Let's get pissed
—getting so drunk it is as if your blood has turned to urine (probably due to the large amount of alcohol you have consumed).
Let's get trashed
—getting so drunk it is as if your body has been thrown in a garbage can.
Let's get chalked

When I was attending Illinois State University I noticed what appeared to be an outline of a person on a wall. It struck my friend and I as particularly funny because it looked a lot like a police outline. This got us to thinking… what if this is "real"? Then it got us to wondering… what if you are so drunk that you pass out and everybody thinks your dead, will the police draw an outline around your body?

Let's get chalked!!!
