I suspect it means that you raise your glass up so the bottom of the glass is up and your mouth at the lip of the glass: ie: you will be drinking it because of gravity ... smile

Johnnie, your explanation sounds very plausible.  The poor victims had better watch out for Roger the Cabinboy.

Thanks for the replies guys, i have a feeling j/f looked on google, you should of used the new search engine (pic below)
But where did the saying come from, (just scroll down) yes it was a navy thing, like the bung in the barrel joke.



During the 18th and 19th centuries, English press gangs would coerce drinkers in London’s dockside pubs into joining the armed forces, usually the navy. Men who accepted the ‘King’s shilling’ were deemed to have willingly contracted to join the navy, and this led to unscrupulous behaviour by the commissioned press gangs.

One of their dishonest tricks was to drop a shilling into a pint pot of a drunk or unsuspecting man, Once he drunk up and discovered the shilling, that was enough proof of payment the money had been accepted and he would be dragged away to join the forces, usally to wake up the following morning on board a ship far out at sea, where the poor chap might spend years on the ocean waves.

Once the landlords and public house owners became aware of the scam, they introduced tankards with a glass or transparent bottom, they would remind their customers lift up the pint and check the bottom to make sure there is not an illicit shilling in their drink. Many pubs today still have the transparent tankards hanging in the bar as decoration.

bottoms up.

so none of you guys have any idea what tits up means,i can believe that. puts me in mind of those watchers when you stroll up walking street that sit outside the bars facing the road just sitting and watching all day  :rclxs0

The way i see it, If something goes wrong,tits up,it means it's broken or to be completely vulgar it's fooked.
