The most common phrase I hear is 'hammered', as in "I didn't even know it was in her butt because I was so hammered!".

In a bid for closer transatlantic ties, I demand you all start saying that, after a few too many, you are "wankered."  It's common over here.

"Bad head?"

"Yeah, I was absolutely wankered last night."

"Cool."

Ha.  I have never heard the word used in that sense before.

Anyway, you wouldn't tell someone to go and bugger off, since the going is implied in the buggering off.  So nur.  icon_razz

then there is 'Taking the Piss'..which is short for 'Taking the Mickey'..or making fun of someone

Well now, I think you're going to have to explain that one to some people Tongue

actually i said that a little wrong,it isnt short for,its just another way of saying it

oh,what do you know...good old Wiki has all the answers

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taking_the_mickey ...this is taking the piss,redirected from taking the mickey


Quote
The term sometimes refers to a form of mockery or a piss take in which the mocker exaggerates the other person's characteristics; pretending to take on his or her attitudes, etc., in order to make them look funny.

The phrase is in common usage throughout English society, employed by headline writers in broadsheet gazettes[1] and tabloids[2] as well as colloquially and is also used in English speaking countries such as Australia.[3][4]

In colloquial usage, 'taking the piss' is also used to refer to someone or something that makes a claim which is not in line with a recognised agreement e.g. an invoice that is double the quoted price with no explanation for the added charge could be said to 'take the piss', or likewise if something consistently misses a deadline.


[edit] Origin
"Take the mickey" is an abbreviated form of the Cockney rhyming slang "take the mickey bliss"[5] ("mickey" being slang for penis[6]), meaning to "take the piss [out of someone]". The phrase has been noted since the 1930s.


[edit] Alternate theories of origin
An alternate, unverified, and unlikely theory of etymology is that "mickey" is a contraction of "micturition" (i.e., piss),[7] "mickey" being a suitable alternative when in the company of those liable to be offended by "piss". Another theory is that "mickey bliss" was used as cockney rhyming slang for "piss", therefore explaining the origins of the phrase "taking the mickey".

It has also been suggested that "mickey" in this context is an ethnic slur for an Irish person (from the surname prefix Mc-), and to "take the mickey" originally meant to taunt the Irish and parody their accents.[citation needed]



and a Flannel,is just a face cloth (or at least thats what it has become more known as)that you have next to your taps on the bathroom sink that you use when washing..i had no idea you guys didnt use that word either


the blue face towel hanging over the sink,here is a Flannel

EDIT;My mum has just told me that there is also the word Flannel when you use to much flannel(slang),meaning you are trying to con somebody..first i have heard of that one though


the word Bugger..well i guess you know what that means,can't say i use the word that much

I rarely used "pissed" but I've been familiar with the term ever since Pink Floyd released The Final Cut as the turn of the phrase is in "Not Now John".  I never used it to mean drunk until we had some friends come up from down under and they used the phrase.  Now if I use it, I'll say "pissed drunk" explicitly.  On the other hand, I don't really used "wasted" either.  I mainly use "Shitty".  I got shitty last night.  She's getting too shitty to drive.  Oh man I am so going out and getting shitty tonight.  Etc...  I picked that up in maybe 91 and it's stuck ever since.  I'll alternate "shitty" with "lit" which I picked up in the early 90s.  Dude, you're lit.  If I have any more I'm gonna be lit.  She's out getting lit tonight.  Etc...

Doh!! Well I'm pretty sure us Canadians use it relatively frequently.  I'll just conveniently forget I ever made this poll smile

I'm Canadian and I've never used it. If I say I'm pissed, it's when I'm pissed off.

Pissed used to mean drunk out here on the wet west coast of Canada up until the 80's, but at sometime it went out of vogue. I haven't actually heard many Canadians say "I'm pissed" to describe anger, but I've heard the idiom "well, now I'm pissed off" or "well... piss...me...off!". I've done consulting gigs in about 70 different US cities, a number of which involved at least one night of heavy drinking, and I've never heard it used there to describe being drunk.

Using "pissed" for drunk used to make sense to me because in my youth we used to party around bon fires out in the boonies. One of the pleasures of that setting was being able to urinate wherever you pleased. Just as long as it wasn't in front of the ladies, on a friend or in the fire. I'd say in anyone's drink too, but once in a while that could be kind of funny.  Tongue
