Jul 24 Word of the Day
It’s an acronym standing for Can’t Remember A Fucking Thing. It’s usually used to describe embarrassment at being unable to remember someone (CRAFT moment); going onstage as the lead in the latest theatrical performance and your mind goes completely blank (CRAFT situation); the next morning after a night when you got pissed as a fart and woke up in bed cuddling a traffic cone and a string of fairy lights wound round your prick.
“Where did you go after we left the pub?”
“Dunno, CRAFT.”

A loyal and reliable friend.


The allusion is to someone who would be prepared to stand up and fight on your side if called on, i.e. one who, in the words of the earlier (late 19th century) phrase, would 'stand up and be counted'.

The phrase is American. The earliest citation is in the Pennsylvania newspaper The Charleroi Mail, April 1935:
"But he seems to be a stand up guy and loyalty, with him, seems to be less a virtue than obsession."
