: Does anyone know where the word 'cabbaged' came from?

I've heard it used relatively recently in the UK to mean extremely drunk or otherwise intoxicated... I assumed it came from the previous use of the word 'cabbage' (similarly 'vegetable') to describe someone of drastically reduced mental and/or physical ability.
