Why did the heading have to include the word ' drunk ' ? He's a Wallaby - of course he was drunk.

And in other news just in: South African police are shocked and surprised that there were no incidents of drink driving throughout the whole country throughout the festive period. This caused journalist to find news worthy stories from other countries to fill their pages...

So was he drunk, or wasn't he. If he had two more peanuts, his reading would have been .08, and not .083. Perhaps he did try and stay below the limit. It's common knowledge, that two beers could give different readings, on different days, depending on circumstances. But yah, he is an Aussie, so lock him up. In fact, do us a favour, try and lock up Cooper!
