I'm readin' an article about the wonderful, much-missed and most definitely dangerous lawn darts, when I notice sidebar text below a "No Lawn Darts" graphic:
Lawn darts have joined RU-486 (the abortion bill), the 2 Live Crew, and the song Copkilla as "Banned in the USA." Copkillin' brass bullets, however, remain available.Typos and semi-illiterate writing aside, I wonder if the writer knows that "cop-killin' Chevy Impalas" and "cop-killin' erroneous prescriptions" also remain available? Or that there are no magic policeman-seeking rounds?
But that's not all! After an outline of the 1988 Consumer Products Safety Commission ban of lawn darts, the writer adds:
Perhaps the Lawn Dart industry has been negligent in not dishing out a few tens of millions a year in bribes to members of congress.The last half of the sentence contained a link to a Brady Center article about an NRA A-rated U.S. Congressthing convicted of taking bribes -- but not from any firearms manufacturer or group.
PSH: it lurks where you least expect it. Happy lawn-darting!
