Dumb Legislation Back Home

The Tennessee legislature, in fine fashion, has managed to make a trifecta of dumb legislation:

1) It failed to pass an act allowing for the sale of wine in grocery stores. Currently you can get your plonk only in wine and spirits stores. Hell, you can buy wine in a grocery even in Alabama!

2) It failed to increase the penalty for cockfighting from a misdemeanor with a $50 fine to a felony. Someone even referred to it as 'a Tennessee tradition.'

3) They are considering legislation allowing teachers to teach alternatives to evolution in science; namely creation science. Which is not science at all!

Why don't they, while they're at it, allow for an alternative theory to that of sexual reproduction: I call it the Stork Theory.


  1. But babies are found on stumps in the forest!

  2. Sad about the wine. I'd whine about that.
