    SLANG

    English with its many variants USA OZ Ireland Englad Scotland has a wealth of slang

    Some vulagr others archaic

    Always ausing watching movies of my youth with Michael Caine and Charles Bronson to see how language evolves

    I think we can all ignore te racial epithets and titles for those who eschew metro hetero for more exotic positions

    Get the ball rolling

    DRUNK, the dictionary yields

    drunk
    adjective






    intoxicated



    inebriated



    drunken



    befuddled



    incapable



    tipsy



    the worse for drink

    under the influence



    maudlin



    blind drunk



    dead drunk

    But so many other lovely terms

    Squiffy
    Tight common in 60's London

    Rat arsed
    Pissed
    Pissed as a newt
    Shit faced
    3 sheets to the wind
    One over the eight
    Fighting drunk

    Can you recall any others?

    Female fundamental oriifice. (Clue: It begins with c and ends with a t).

    PS. It’s not clit because that would be an appendage, not an orifice.
