La Law

"We need a law that will permit a voter to sue a candidate for breach of promise."

-Unknown

It's been a while since I went jogging through the land of idiotic laws...so I thought to myself last night, "Self...it's important to keep your friends and readers and readers of friends and lurkers and friends of lurkers and heck just the whole bleeping Internet up to date and well informed, should one of those folks decide to go on vacation. Heck...something really strange could happen and gas prices could come down. Who knows...one more scandal out of the Bush administration and we could all be getting gas for free. :) Hee Hee. Oh...come on...I tease the president. LOL. Heck he is a big fan of mine, why I bet he has a file on me this {>>>>>>>>>} thick. He keeps it stored at the Office of Homeland Security for safe keeping. I don't suppose he will be reading this entry however, since we all know HE is above the law...I mean he never does anything wrong...I mean...oh heck...on with the list. Be sure to take notes...

Doesn't Arizona have any stupid laws? Well, we have the Stupid Motorist Law, but it's the motorist that's stupid, not the law. Hmm. Perhaps I should research this!

Carly,

Are these for real? Or did your incredibly creative head make them up? They are positively hilarious!

As far as Bush and his friends go, I just saw a poster for a new movie he is starring in with Rummey. It's called Dumbf--k Mountain, coming soon to a theatre near you.

Thanks for the giggle this morning!

I just looked up Texas wacky laws and found that "it is illegal for one to shoot a buffalo from the second story of a hotel."

Does not say a darn thing about a residence...

Obviously, some laws are made to be broken. We'll let it slide if W decides to step out of a plane in flight.

Maybe Laura will get a divorce after the Presidency.
