The new dumbest thing I've heard

A bill was introduced in Mississippi that would make it illegal for restaurants to serve people who are deemed obese. This has got to be the most ridiculous idea ever. First of all, I'm not sure how it can be constitutional to keep paying customers from being served because of their weight. If we're going to keep fat people from eating, why don't we keep smokers from smoking, or alcoholics from drinking?

Maybe we should pass a law that says ugly people can't attend parties, dumb people can't repopulate the world, and old people can't drive. Well, that last one might not be such a bad idea...

This is just too dumb to keep talking about. The author of the bill, Rep. W.T. Mayhall Jr., clearly doesn't have enough to do down there in the South if this is the kind of project he's working on.

Time for me to go get my Big Mac.
