Reason Number 264 I Won’t Be Moving to Alabama

dildo-streetsighn.jpgBecause the Alabama Supreme Court recently ruled against Love Stuff, a sex toy store, in holding the state’s anti-obscenity law constitutional. Said the Court:

Public morality can still serve as a legitimate rational basis for regulating commercial activity, which is not a private activity…. As the Eleventh Circuit in Williams IV pithily and somewhat coarsely stated: ‘There is nothing ‘private’ or ‘consensual’ about the advertising and sale of a dildo.’

Yup. Alabama hates dildoes.

Bono? Is it Bono? B.J.? Kong? Come on, what the hell’s your name?!?

howling-monkey.jpgEarlier this month, a monkey was arrested in Perth, Australia, because he refused to identify himself to the police:

The monkey had declined to give his name when questioned by police, so they took him away. At the police station, the monkey was identified as a young man, Brenton Green, dressed in a realistic monkey suit.

Police had earlier received complaints that the monkey had been harassing passersby and knocked a hamburger out of a man’s hand.
