1 : marked by intemperance especially in eating or drinking
2 : sick from excessive indulgence in liquor

Even better than the sound of the word CRAPULOUS—knowing the word comes from the Latin crapula, meaning intoxication.

A Dracula parody waiting to happen?

Other notable Dracula parodies to date (not a complete list, by any means):

The Fearless Vampire Killers (Polanski, 1967)*
Blacula (1972)
Blood For Dracula (a Warhol project, 1974)
Dracula: Dead and Loving It (Mel Brooks, 1995)

I envision CRAPULA played by Pauly Shore. I'll leave the rest to the imagination.

*This film is particularly hilarious. Please rent it and watch it.
