Carousing is like drinking, except it involves singing rude songs, spilling drinks and occasionally killing someone for a bit of a laugh.
If this displease, why urge ye here your stay?
Haste from the court, ye spoilers, haste away:
Waste in wild riot what your land allows,
There ply the early feast, and late carouse.
--Homer, translated and arranged by Alexander Pope, who thinks the use of the infinitive "carousing" is not worth the despoiling of a poetic example.
