Maryland, My Maryland

Proposed legislation, taken from a newsletter I get keeping me informed of these vital things.

Bill would ban explicit decorations on vehicles

Fake bull testicles and other anatomically explicit vehicle decorations would be banned from Maryland roads under a bill pending in the state legislature.

The measure was filed Monday by Del. LeRoy E. Myers Jr., a Washington County Republican who says children shouldn't be exposed to such decorations dangling from pickup truck trailer hitches. The bill also would ban depictions of naked human breasts, buttocks or genitals, with offenses punishable by fines of up to $500.

My first reaction was to ridicule such silly legislation. But on reflection I think it might keep a lot of rednecks, Texans, and those with tiny penises out of the state. I think I'll call Delegate Myers and tell he that I support him.

They're smokin' hot in Annapolis this season. This morning, I heard about them wanting to confiscate the monies from unused gift cards as Abandoned Property, and steal them to dump into the Education Fund. Prepare to never be able to buy a gift card in Maryland again.

I wonder if Mike Miller is putting something in the coffee.

My first reaction is to ponder what a decorative bull testicle looks like, who would find them attractive or cool, and what kind of statement do they make?

My next thought is to wonder if this law would outlaw that little Calvinish kid that pees on NASCAR numbers or if he would be safe since no actual genitalia is showing, just the urine stream. It's this type of distinction that will separate the truly inspired and meaningful law from the ridiculous, you know.

He likes to pee on Gordon, that Calvin kid
