       In meaning #2, I must say that in some far away places the definition of "drunk" must be understood like "drunk as a skunk", that is, you might have drunk a river, try to jump the line (the queue) and try to fight with the people working in the election.

       In major cities you do get into deep waters just by having a strong smelling of alcohol.
