Cockney Slang for the common phraze 'Muzzard', a word to describe getting really drunk
. The word first originated when two londoners mispronounced the word mustard
, and so that the two avoided embarrasment they made up this 'word'.
The word was a hit with the local lads and soon became a phraze used all around london. It became so popular, some bright spark came up with hawk
as a cockney slang use for the word, so they could talk about getting muzzard
without people hearing, and if they did they'd just think they'd be talking about birds
