The latest threat to civilization banned by these avant-garde champions of San Francisco? Trumpets and drum roll, please!
To be specific, the ban is on the release of butterflies at weddings and other such celebrations. Why? Sniffed one proponent of the ban, "they are not creatures to be owned." Would that they had such concern and conviction about pre-born babies! Who dreams up this crap - and on the taxpayer dime to boot?
With apologies to the late Scott McKenzie, I dreamed up the following little ditty that we can all sing to remind ourselves of this new useless law, should we ever have to set foot into that cesspool known as San Francisco. I might cough up more lyrics to this - if I have time.
If you're going to San Francisco
Be sure to keep your butterflies away.
If you bring them to San Francisco
You'll be in jail forever and a day.
