Alcohol failed to cause riot at Clark Quay the past year since Little India riot occurred

Posted on 08 December 2014

Authorities not sure what went right.


Authorities grappling for answers as to why the Little India riot occurred last December were left even more puzzled as watering hole Clark Quay did not experience a similar incident the past year.

This despite having all the elements there at one place to start the most proper and epic riot.

An official spokesperson, Qu Da Jia, said: “All the contributing factors present in Little India last December were similarly available in Clark Quay throughout the year: People, alcohol and dustbins for tossing.”

“But nothing happened.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life have also expressed their amazement that Clark Quay was not ground zero given that there are more drunks there and alcohol is way overpriced.

Qu Pia Zui, a local said: “A bottle of beer for $12? I’m surprised no one has started a fight over that yet.”

However, the lack of riots at Clark Quay has been shown to be a result of expensive alcohol possessing certain anti-rioting elements.

A Singaporean scientist, Dr Lim Kar Tor had discovered earlier in March this year that the two main anti-rioting properties present in expensive alcohol are called “wealth” and “opportunity”, which make a difference in the reactions of drinkers.

Dr Lim explained then: “You can find these properties called ‘wealth’ and ‘opportunity’ only in expensive alcohol. Once you’ve consumed enough of it, you wouldn’t be upset with your lot in life.”
