So drinking and driving then. Drink driving sounds like you're transporting beers.
It doesn't though. Drink driving is fine and makes sense.

Skim milk is silly.

Obviously if you're drunk and in control of a vehicle it's an offence. But you don't have to be drunk. That's why it's not called drunk driving.

"Drink" has no inherent link to being intoxicated. It's just a word about imbibing any kind of liquid. "Drunk" is 99% of the time entirely related to alcohol use. Your phrase is stupid.

Just repeating that it makes sense doesn't make it so. Drink refers to either the present tense action or the item. What do you call stoned driving? Marijuana driving? Smoke driving?

Miss me with the buzzed=/=drunk nonsense. Buzzed is just the lower tier of drunkenness.

Never said that it wasn't, but it remains the convention here. Could be to preserve label space like I mentioned earlier, could also be because "skimmed" invokes an image of a worker dipping a net into a big vat of milk which might not be the most appealing image to associate with your drink.

Both versions sound fine to me, probably because it's not a term I've encountered often.

Dunno what stoned driving is, might be under dangerous driving.

Label space
