Florida Law: Pull Your Pants Up and Stop Having Sex With Animals

(Thankfully)

Florida does some quirky things on occasion. And Governor Rick Scott (himself not above inciting controversy) has a chance to sign into law a couple of unusual bills. Yes, one of them happens to be a law against the current gangsta trend of wearing your pants too low and showing off your knickers or other things that probably are better off not being shown in public.

I’ll be honest; I’m not too terribly upset about this law. The trend is pretty silly and in some cases offensive. I’ve asked a manager of a fast food restaurant for a refund because the kid who served it to me had his drawers (literally) almost to his knees. I couldn’t figure out how he could walk around in them much less keep them from falling off his lanky frame.

But it’s also a little silly to make laws like this. I mean, do we really need a real fashion police? I suppose the argument is an extension of indecency laws already on the books but I’m not sure I’d want to be a lawmaker credited with voting on this.

Several representatives did balk at voting on this next law being considered; which seems almost unnecessary to address, bestiality. But apparently some lonely people in the south just can’t help themselves. Given the level of embarrassment involved in getting caught doing this, one has to wonder why such things occur. Something else to consider, does anyone take the trauma of the animals into question?

    Not sure it is just a Deep South thing Mr. U. We had a guy up here in the frozen North try to marry his German Shepard and there are all those stories about the guys tending the sheep on the islands. Odd or even weird seems to know no geographical bounds.
