    No, I'm not angry. I was just thinking about this word. Apart from Dr Grump, Roomy and me and anyone else with a UK/AUS/NZ background, I would reckon most readers would see "pissed"="angry".

    Some non UK/AUS/NZers might know that "pissed"= drunk in UK/AUS/NZ.

    So, I could be pissed+pissed posting here. Or I could just be pissed.

    Or I could get pissed after reading a few posts.

    Funny thing though, the synonym for "angry" how passed into Australian casual language. But we tend to say "pissed off" which is, I think, the usual full expression in American. Americans drop the "off" and still understand that it means "angry".

    Okay, I'm going to piss off now :D

    :lol:

    "Oh behave!"

    But

    "Shagging on the Boulevard" - Alabama.

    I remember being a bit surprised when I saw that track on the cd :lol:

    Given the sort of slowish tempo of the song I would think shagging is a sort of slow dance?

    That's interesting because a lot of aboriginal people here, in the isolated areas will say something similar such as, "that bloke, he's pissed drunk, you need to take him in."

    It can be done standing up if the guy wants a lot of exercise. Helps if partners are about the same height.... ... .

    Are you saying that people in Australia get drunk on piss? I'll never drink another Foster's again. I swear, I never will!

    :lol:

    Funny, I bought a six pack of Foster's just last week. The guy in the liquor store told me an Australian woman had been in the store the day before looking for beer. He pointed her towards the Foster's but she said, "Oh no thanks. We make foster's in Australia and we sell it. But we Aussies NEVER drink it!".

    Now I know why. :eusa_eh:
