Strange Week for Nanny Statism

with one comment

Across the country, we are cracking down on teeth brushing, raw eggs and MORE!

New York: Things Get Messy When Bartenders Crack an Egg – Pegu Club busted for failing to inform customer that Earl Grey MarTEAni contains raw egg white. [But caveat: No, it is not proper to compare a ban on egg white drinks to the destruction of an entire city by Hurricane Katrina, douchebag bartender].

Boston: Call Off the Toothbrush Police – State mandates day care programs brush children’s teeth.

DC: Electronic Cigarette Imports on Hold – Appeals court puts hold on lower court ruling allowing e-cigarettes to be imported.

But, hey, at least our porn stars don’t have to wear condoms:

Los Angeles County Declines to Force Condom Use in Porn FilmsCounty Public Health Department says no to demands from AIDS activist group that require condom use in porn films.

  1. Speaking as someone with an egg allergy, how fucking hard is it for a bar to write, “oh, btw, this drink had egg in it” on their fucking menu? I don’t think they should have to stop using raw eggs- they just need to tell me so I don’t drink it, get sick and never come to their bar again.
