Thought this would be interesting while I was abroad. Explaining that I could rattleof 50 words for drunk used in Ireland without pause.
Must be a unique to us here.
So I thought Id like to see everyone elses words for drunk and get the
" Boards Definitve guide to being drunk in Ireland"
Start with the basics
1. Ar mesice
Now Id like to see a few more colouful and regional ones......Maybe an explantion for any obscure local oddities or personal faves.
Elephants, Banjo'd, rubber, baloobas
Three sheets in the wind
Storsified? (phonetic - this spelling doesn't exist!)
Haha. Once explained to foreign work colleagues that, in the same way the Eskimos describe snow in dozens of different words in their langauge, because drink is as in your face to us as snow is to the Inuit, we have pretty much as many terms
Ossified/state of ossification
Whats so great about this country is you know what type of drunk is being described by the wording. If someone was bananas drunk, they were drunk, a bit of energy and rowdy/talking sh1te when they shouldnt have.
Rubbered is fairly jolly and inoffensive. Probably the best drunk state to pull in
Flutered- jolly, not with much control of the legs but talking good natured utter sh1te to birds
Slaughtered- in bits but still fairly coherent
Ossified- hammered and talking/getting involved in sh1te. See "bananas"
Twisted- off your head, needed others help to even get home
Owra me face
Rubber is the big one around the Ringsend area yeah.
anyone say stocious?
it's disgracefull glorifying drunkeness, no wonder we are seen as a nation of drunks
