My question is what about whole ones?
I feel...violated. I should have every right to discard half-eaten pickles.
How do they measure these pickles? What if it's only 1/4 eaten? Or 2/3?
In Fargo, you'll be pleased to know that:
It is illegal to lie down and fall asleep with your shoes on; and
One may be jailed for wearing a hat while dancing, or even for wearing a hat to a function where dancing is taking place. One has to wonder...if one
wears a hat whilst dancing, and then falls asleep with shoes still on...is that begging for a life sentence?!
On a more serious note...
With all the past history of drunkenness leading to criminal activity in the UK, this current law is just...insane. I can't think of a word to
describe it, really.
Profit always comes before wellbeing of citizens, apparently
Edit: Wait a sec though. Are they trying to simply regulate what's already happening illegally
? If so, I can understand the logic, however
misguided it may appear. You know?
