I left out the part about my coworkers being dolts, sorry.

perhaps he was threatening to feed them to his "jag-you-are"...


Also, my question was not answered, if you encounter someone who is intoxicated do you say:

"wow, that guy is really drink" or "wow, that guy is really drunk"?

To be drunk is not the same as driving under the influence of alcohol. The one describes the state of that person, being drunk, so it's an adjective, in the other it's the description of the verb, driving, i.e. used as an adverb, drink/drunk driving.
You can see here that British and American English apparently differ: drink driving : W�rterbuch / Dictionary (BEOLINGUS, TU Chemnitz)

I find the 'u' in Commonwealth spelling to be essential.

'Colour' without 'u' seems sort of 'colorless'.

Cool new technology should help a bit. Forcible blood extractions.

Police say syringes will help stop drunk driving - Yahoo! News

I think you meant to spell your prefix as "-ised."

I'm a bit drink right now, but under the legal limit, so no off colour posts.

financeguy is right, you stinking, rotten seppos! it's drink driving. i don't know why americans argue with british people on the english language. it's the shit, hill and one-straw broom analogy. nsw is also right with jag-you-are. god, it kills a part of me when i hear, 'jag-warre'.

and now i must decontaminate myself after having written in the one post that both nsw and financeguy are correct.
