Spotted on the mean streets of Hollywood, or rather the boulevard of Hollywood to be more precise, the city has posted a hefty fine for what is most assuredly the biggest threat facing America, Halloween and, oh, let’s say freedom:
Now I’m no legal expert, but the quotes around “ILLEGAL” imply that the sign is either meant sarcastically, or that this sign employs a loose definition of the word ‘illegal’. A kind of ‘wink, wink’ illegal. According to the wording of the law…
Individuals, businesses and/or vendors possessing or selling Silly String on public or private property in Hollywood will be given the option to voluntarily discard the product or face a maximum $1000 fine and/or six months in jail.
…so apparently it’s ask nicely first, 6 months in jail second.
