An Irish wake is basically a party after the death of a family member or friend. Usually used by family members to get drunk and tell stories, usually inappropriate, about the deceased.

The act of taking a Guinness enima to get drunk quicker. Much like the French who discovered that shooting wine into the ass can get you drunk quicker.
