Actually the haze has been around even before the GE, and all the candidates had been going around in the haze!

And I gather that SMS was wandering around in quite a haze himself on Friday night/Saturday morning!

Perhaps we might institute a 'Personal Haze Reading'
X pints = caution suggested, expect over-thought humour that no one else quite gets.
Y pints = hazardous, together with random deep irony; no longer cares if anyone else gets it.
Z pints = danger to him/herself, humour now abated due to entire focus being on standing up.

Ah well financial instruments rely on 3rd party rating agencies such as Moodys. Perhaps there might be a Drunkies Index rating? :-D

Newsflash:
'SMS was reportedly downgraded to Z- at 1.30am, well into the Junked risk zone. Reportedly, since no one else still present by then remembers a damn thing either'.... hehe ;)

Hey guys, please learn to be thankful and grateful. Mwahaha......

Yesterday, in an echo of seasons past, Indonesian Vice-President Jusuf Kalla rapped neighbouring countries for complaining about the haze, and asked them instead to be grateful for the clean air they enjoy for the rest of the year.

"For 11 months, they enjoyed nice air from Indonesia and they never thanked us," he said.
