Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear.

Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
