One night in the House of Commons, Churchill, after imbibing a few drinks, stumbled into Bessie Braddock, a corpulent Labourite member from Liverpool. An angry Bessie straightened her clothes and addressed the British statesman.

"Winston," she roared. "You are drunk, and what’s more, you are disgustingly drunk."

Churchill, surveying Bessie, replied, "And might I say, Mrs. Braddock, you are ugly, and what’s more, disgustingly ugly.

But tomorrow," Churchill added, "I shall be sober."

Sober, in a literal sense, is to be void of the influence of any intoxicating agents like alcohol, for example.

However, it is often used (satirically) to replace the word drunk in places and situation where it would be wise to avoid explicitly stating one's intention to become intoxicated.
Hey man, are you and the boys still going out to get sober as all hell tonight?
