  • Noun. Newfoundland English for strong alcoholic beverage. (To bung one's eye is to drink heartily.) Usage:
    "When I was out walking, my sea stock to buy,
    Got tricked in the liquor, and bought Bung-'er-eye." (Note: usually pronounced "bung your eye" or "bung yer eye.")

    From the Dictionary of Newfoundland English, 2nd ed., p. 74.
