no tongue-splitting in delaware

because i just did a rant on too many laws and creative prosecution, i thought it was worth noting that the delaware legislature has decided that tongue-splitting should be illegal in delaware (except when done by a doctor or dentist)…

While the practice is rare, if not nonexistent, in Delaware, lawmakers decided it would be wise to nip it in the bud.

“I had never heard of tongue splitting until I saw this bill,” said Senate sponsor James Vaughn, D-Clayton.

apparently, it’s already illegal in texas and illinois, and legislation has been proposed in tennessee, west virginia, new york, indiana and kentucky.

i guess it’s a good thing our legislators are spending their time on these important issues of our times
