I’ve found that people get really uncomfortable when I use the word ‘brewskies’ in reference to beers or drinks in general. Because of this, I use ‘brewskies’  whenever the opportunity presents itself. It would seem I really enjoy making people feel awkward.

But recently I’ve discovered the linguistic discomfort doesn’t end at ‘brewskies’, oh no. In fact, appending -ski to just about any word in the English language causes people to recoil in vague disgust.

This has opened an entirely new window of discomfort-causing opportunity.
