you know, it's a "law"


Several people pointed me to this blogging.la post. Silly string may or may not be legal on Halloween. Given that the law has the word silly IN IT, I wouldn't take it too seriously anyway. PLUS can the silly string merchants who don't get rid of their wares on the 30th get arrested for possession? (Yes, I'm a month behind on reading and posting submissions.)

So what happens if you have a generic version of silly string?

What bothers me is that there are opening quotation marks on both sides of the quote.

Maybe people are illegally dealing Silly String on the streets.

When silly string is outlawed, only outlaws will have silly string.

Some city council, supposedly made up of reasoning adults, took the time to discuss, argue over, and pass a city law banning Silly String for just one 24-hour period a year.

And we're worried about their misuse of quotation marks?

They sure found a "brilliant" solution to the problem.
