George Carlin Said It Best:
"Some people are £µ©λin' stupid.
Then there are the people--they're not stupid--they're full of $#17.
Then there's the other people. They're not stupid, they're not fulla $#17 ... They're £µ©λin' nuts!
Dan Quayle is all three."
Today you might add Charlie Crist, governor of the latest state to advocate responsible gunplay in the workplace.
Crist signed into law a bill allowing workers to bring their firearms to work. The gun must be locked in a vehicle in the parking lot. Under the law you could conceivably ride your motor scooter to work and padlock your .45 to it.
I've always felt that Florida needed a high fence around it, possibly electrified. Dave Barry can relocate to Canada by smuggling himself up in a snowbird's fifth-wheeler.
Florida business groups are sick of this shameless pandering to the National Rifle Association, and point out that the Governor has just made it impossible for them to comply with their duties under federal and state laws that mandate the first duty of an employer: Namely, to ensure a safe working environment.
But the really interesting thing is the comments at various news organs, where teh crazy burns brightest, with a spooky green-blue glow like a rotting ham under a full moon in the Okeefenokee.
Many of these people justify their desire to bring their penis extensions to work because ... are you ready for this?
What if a "disgruntled" worker brings a gun to work?
As Dave Barry says: I am not making this up!
I'm not going to get into the whole melée scenario (y'know, where one guy shoots a madman, and several "heroes" blow one another away).
I'm just going to say that if I were a Florida employer, I'd be making plans to move my parking lot at least two miles from the building.
Stupid. Full of $#17. And £µ©λing nuts.
