Banning Bikini Baristas, Big Dogs, and Energy Drinks! (Nanny of the Month, March 2013)
They make it their business to mind your business, and this month America's busybodies have been working overtime.
Lawmakers are no longer loco for just one brand of energy drink. Illinois State Rep. Luis Arroyo (D-Chicago) has penned a bill that would make it illegal "to sell, offer for sale or deliver" just about any kind of energy drink to anyone under age 18 (Arroyo's championing another top-tier issue–outlawing lion steaks).
Meanwhile, dog lovers in Oklahoma are sounding off against a plan cooked up by State Sen. Patrick Anderson (R-Enid) to allow cities to ban specific breeds of dogs (stay tuned for the surprise twist!).
But this time the Nanny of the Month comes to us from Shelton, WA where city commissioners and townspeople alike have united against a threat of bikini baristas!
