very drunk. A popular word among students, younger members of the armed forces and other heavy drink-ers from the 1960s to the present. The image is of someone disgustingly or help-lessly drunk, as in the expression 'pissed as an arsehole'; but the term is neutral, not usually pejorative, and is used by all social classes.
