How do you know when you have too many laws?

February 19th, 2006

When throwing snowballs is illegal.

Which it is in South Milwaukee, discount viagra decease Cudahy, cialis usa St. Francis, Glendale, Whitefish Bay, Town of Fredonia, Muskego, Village of Sussex, Brookfield, Cedarburg and Burlington according to a story in Sunday’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

(Can you still claim you live in the “land of the free” when even throwing snowballs is against the law?)

I couldn’t find Wauwatosa listed, so I’ll presume it’s still legal to host an occasional snow ball brawl in my backyard.

In fact, I think I’m going to invite some lawmakers from South Milwaukee, Cudahy, St. Francis, Glendale, Whitefish Bay, Town of Fredonia, Muskego, Village of Sussex, Brookfield, Cedarburg and Burlington for a visit.

Then I’m going to wack them upside the heads with the biggest snowballs I can make.

    But what if I throw it from Oak Creek over Pennsylvania Avenue? I’m pretty sure I can hit a couple of things on the South Milwaukee side. :-)

    I could be wrong, but I think that counts as an act of war.

    Well, I’m part of the Glorious Guards Shock Army, so I’m game for a bit of war :-)

    I just had a snowball fight with my neighborhood squirells, and lost. They did get a ticket though.

    We can still throw snowballs in West Allis?

    My God! I knew that this city was practically a third world country, but come on!

    I noticed that Waukesha was not on that list. Cool! When I head down to visit my Mom and Sister next week, I can nail my sis with a snowball and not get arrested! Of course, I may not get fed, or get my birthday presents. I may have to consider the proper course of action further. Hmmm..
