I drink, therefore I am...confused

With the Great American Beer Festival opening the taps tomorrow, the time is right to clear up some lexiconic confusion we're having with Drunk of the Week columnist Drew Bixby.

Says he: "Shitcanned is just one of many adjectives I use for drunk."

Says we: "Shitcanned" means cut off -- if not kicked out.

What say you?
