We just learned that only "most" animals drink water, right?

Pingwin jest naprany?

That's a word I have never heard... Wiktionary says it's regional in Silesia :D

It is a word used by my elderly father-in-law who lives in Oświęcim, so you could very well be right. I realise now it is vulgar and inappropriate for an educational forum such as this. Apologies if I caused any offence. I would be interested to hear of the origins of the word though, if anyone knows any more detail.

The number of idioms connected with being drunk is veeery big. One is "na**ny jak Messerschmitt". There isn't much logic to such phrases, I'd say ;)
