GUEST,Nicholas Waller Folklore: The Thousand Names of Drunk (31) RE: Folklore: The Thousand Names of Drunk 05 Jan 09

Language Log referenced that article and commenters reckon that Spanish has just as many, it is just the writer doesn't have the vocabulary.

One commenter mentions comedian Michael MacIntyre to the effect that "one can actually turn any English word into a past participle and it will mean drunk. The example he uses is 'I got absolutely bungalowed'."

Let's see -

I got absolutely mudcatted
I got absolutely folked
I got absolutely banjoed
I got absolutely morrissed
I got absolutely diddly-diddlied
I got absolutely plucked
I got absolutely floorsingered
I got absolutely clubbed
