Three sheets to the wind......drunk

Blotto......drunk

There's hundreds of colloquialisms for drinking and being drunk. Probably more than any other topic.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

The Scots also have some good words. My favourite is pish flaps. That's the dog's bollocks that word.

As for British, rat arsed is my favourite. Sometimes rodent bottomed is used instead as a joke.

Ask an American, "Hey I'm thinking of ordering a pizza, would you have a slice?"
He'd answer, "I could."
A Brit might say, "I could do."

It's the same damn thing, but that just sounds fancier to me somehow.

Being an Englishman. my answer would be "yes please" or "no, thank you."
One endeavours to be polite even to bloody foreigners. Angel

RE: British colloquialisms
You can use almost any word for "drunk". More of me stealing from uk comedians, but for example:

"I was absolutely Panini'd"
"I was absolutely Gazebo'd"
etc

Cockney rhyming slang is a different ball game, in both the full slang and then how you use it. For example:

Butchers hook = look
so you would say "Ok, let's have a butchers at it"

Very confusing, but that is the point I think lol.

EDIT: we also call Condoms "Rubber Johnny's"
