Tongue Tied?

December 31, 2008 ( - For those who might need a little help knowing when they have had too much to drink, here's a few words of advice.

Innovative, preliminary and cinnamon.

Believe it or not, police in Suffolk, UK, have launched a “drink-drivel” campaign – and say that those who have drunk too much to be getting behind the wheel of a car will have trouble saying those words.

Similarly, you should find words such as specificity, passive-aggressive disorder and transubstantiate even harder to pronounce.

Beyond that, they have also said that that inebriated individuals will also have trouble uttering the following phrases:

  • Thanks, but I don’t want to sleep with you
  • Where is the nearest toilet? I can’t possibly vomit in the street
  • Good evening, officer, isn’t it lovely out tonight?
  • No kebab for me, thank you
  • I’m not interested in fighting you
  • Good evening, officer, isn’t it lovely out tonight?
  • Oh, I just couldn’t – no one wants to hear me sing
  • Sorry, but you’re not really my is
  • I must be going home now – I have work in the morning
