Honey! No! Don’t fluff that pillow!
“Mr. Johnson, do you want a holster or a box for your new pistol?”
“I’ll sleep on it…”
I once proposed an official Department of Finding Out What Imbeciles are Doing and Quickly Banning It. That was after it became clear that folks needed to be told not to text-message while driving.
So here’s another one to add to the list. Some rocket scientist has had his gun license taken away because the police found out he was sleeping with a loaded revolver under his pillow. I’m not making this up.
A judge explained that the ruling sets a legal precedent, in effect outlawing SLEEPING ON TOP OF A FIREARM! Boy, that’s a downer, because I was thinking of doing just that next weekend!
Before you ask what the police were doing looking under this sharpie’s pillow, I’ll tell you: he had threatened to throw a hand grenade if the city council took some action he didn’t like. Not making that up, either.
