Will it now be illegal to go into your yard and pick up fallen sticks? You might be destroying the habitat of some legislator’s pet bug. Will you be taxed for enjoying the smells outside of bakeries? And why not? Pleasant scents are a luxury. Why should only rich people get to enjoy them? (If the logic there doesn’t make sense, its not supposed to). And why should you complain? Legislation probably got through that will help you in all sorts of never dreamed ways.
For example, in the name of proper sanitation and out of concern that the repetitive movement might give you carpal tunnel syndrome, they will now even wipe your butt for you. And its only right, since they have the health of the whole country to look for. You were probably doing it wrong. They’ll set it right. Of course, the wait time while you stand in line for a professional wiper will practically kill you. But its your ‘patriotic’ duty. Everyone must have some ‘skin in the game,’ know what I mean, wink wink nudge nudge.
Seem absurd? Well heavens, it is only slightly more absurd then possibly going to jail and losing your possessions because you walk on Federal and PICK UP A ROCK.
