Hi mishy

If you hear this sentence in the US, it would mean "I'm extremely angry".

However, I believe it would mean "I'm extremely drunk" in the UK.

Hi,Amy
Too funny! :lol: :lol: :lol: I see , two different meanings.
I asked those words expressing the "drunk" meaning, "pissed" (the Miss Dictionary says: Brit sl, negative) , its idiom is like: "be as pissed as a newt", meaning "very drunk"
Do you know other idioms with the similar meanings???
Thanks, :P

Do you mean idioms meaning drunk, FangFang?
Words and expressions such as drunk as a skunk? Three sheets to the wind? Plastered? Sh*tfaced? Bombed? Tipsy? "Serfectly pober"? :lol:

(We may have to rely on "frequent users" for additional ideas.... ;))

While considering the adverse influence of Japan on my emotional and physical equilibrium, it occurred to me that 'pissed' can refer to either anger or intoxication, but 'pissed off' can only refer to the former.

Is that really an "idiom"? I thought it was just some inappropriate language. Oh well.

Well, I don't know there are so many words and expressions with "drunk" meanings, I believe I can open a can of worms :lol:
Ok:I found some
1) a sheet in the wind(slightly drunk, attention please, not three sheets___very drunk? :lol: )
2) have a drop in one's eye:slightly
3) fall down the sink(boozer or toper)
4) teach up
5)a wet smack(sot)
6)off the nail(slightly)
7)take one's medicine
8)drunk as a lord
9)have a load on
10) wash one's ivories
Well, those are what I can think of so far, I wonder if you have other expressions , Can you line them up according to the extent of drunkness? :lol: :lol:

Idiomatic because the basic meaning of the word is 'urinate', cooliegirly. Not inappropriate among the boys at a bar; but vulgar and therefore inappropriate in polite company.

this idiom has nothing to do with urinate or drunk : 3rd example : i`m totally pissed of you" ich fühle mich völlig verarscht von dir, du kotzt mich an, so eine Scheiße hab ich noch nie gehört.......
