    Re: get slashed

    banderas:
    Knowing your familiarity with English, I can only presume you are well aware of the literal meaning of 'slashed' ( and the word 'get')

    'slashed' is a word coined from the two words colloquially used to express degree of intoxication: 'sloshed' and 'smashed'.

    'get slashed" : get drunk
