inked

adj
drunk. These terms, although rare, are not yet obsolete and are common to Britain, Australia and the USA. The ori-gin of the expressions is unclear. They may be humorous parallels to blotto, or perhaps (and more probably) derive from the fact that cheap red wine was, in the early years of the 20th century, referred to as 'ink'.
