“One over the eight” – an expression meaning someone who has had one over the eight is very drunk indeed. It refers to the standard eight pints that most people drink and feel is enough. Well, that’s what the dictionary said.
In the mini scene created by our Chief Operating Officer, Frank Davis, the main character looks as if he has definitely had enough. Note the cat to his immediate right who looks as if may also have imbibed when he shouldn’t. Shift your eyes left and you’ll see Bingo the dog who is happy to just sit there. Meanwhile, in the back of the winch house the real work goes on under the supervision of Otto, the foreman.
