Aggravating Tom. I am glad this guy never laid a paw upon my shoulders. He was at least, honest, as he admitted not just being drunk, but cut. I love a word that is so perfect for its purpose that it is still used today. These days it is not unusual for people (Australians, anyway) to describe themselves as cut and they will also be more specific and say that they are half-cut when they are less than completely drunk.
