1.A Central-Scottish slang term for an act of reckless abandon carried out whilst drunk or otherwise inebriated.
2.A term which implies a state of extreme drunkeness.
This term was first coined in June 1993 when a local man was found outside of a nightclub with two broken legs after attempting to circumvent the security of said nightclub by trying to scale a drainpipe and gain entry from a second storey bathroom window. The individual concerned was made famous and was forever associated with drunken stunts when a security video capturing the incident was shown the next week on screens in the nightclub.
1. "I can't believe you jumped out that window last night. That was a total rhodesy thing to do."
2. I was at that party last night. I was totally rhodesy."
