I don't know _their_ derivation.
But in German - blau means blue. It also means "drunk" - in British
english, "as pissed as a fart". Incapable. Helpless. Smashed.
"Fergnuegenen" is a bastard plural of "Vergnuegen" - an expression
of happiness and contentment.
Put the two together, and the general impression is "happy as h@ll to
be as pissed as a fart".
