A new addition to the Big Book of Bunkum:

sobnambulate (verb): to walk with an unsteady gate while crying in one's beer

e.g. Every morning in Los Angeles, when the sun comes up, Harry and John meet on a crowded park bench with other citizens (from a nearby discarded toys and electronic gadgets landfill site) to chew the fat, and sobnambulate with a six-pack in hand about life, liberty and today's smog warning before they get down to the business of evaluating reality from a cat's-eye point of view or a burly bear named Ted.
