Yesterday at an after-work barbecue party, myself and a few colleagues were trying to come up with as many slang, figurative, and colloquial phrases we could think of for the adjective “intoxicated,” which is the most proper and clinical way of describing someone who has had too much to drink. Some of us were sightly intoxicated when this discussion came up and I found out that it’s difficult to pronounce “intoxicated” when one is intoxicated.
So I’ll have a go:
Full som en kastrull (strange Swedish expression that translates to “as drunk as a saucepan.”)
(And my personal favorite:)
Of course there are more. Many many many more. But I don’t want to have all the fun. What amusing phrases can you come up with?
