        It is illegal to give a dog whiskey.

        Back when I was 15 or so, I was tending bar for my oldest brother and his friend who were both celebrating birthdays. (Our folks owned a tavern.) We had a little dog, part terrier and part chihuahua (sp). She really liked gin and squirt. That poor thing got so drunk she couldn't walk. We all thought it was funny until Mom came in the bar and saw the dog. Mom wasn't happy.

              Nice to see the mentality of our politicians hasn’t changed much over the years.
              Sure hope none of my ancestors voted for any of them.

              Maybe making dumb laws should be illegal.

                  Seems like a stupid law until you think about...I can remember twice going to food places with smoke showing with people still inside eating(some brought there plates out and ate while we worked then got ****ed we wouldnt let them order another beer)...at another the owner was trying to make people pay before they left a building with a grease fire!
