T’ it’s a Crime!

One slip of the nip, could land you in the joint.

Lawmakers in North Carolina are proposing a bill that would make it a felony for women to show their breasts.

“Under the proposed law, women could spend up to six months in jail for a first offense. ‘Incidental’ nipple exposure by breastfeeding mothers would be exempt from the law.”

The bill busted out to try and put an end to the annual topless rally in Asheville.

One lawmaker was concerned that the bill could affect people wearing “questionable fashions”. In which, Committee Chairwoman Rep. Sarah Stevens, R-Surry said using pasties or other nipple coverings would protect those women against prosecution. “They’d be good to go.”

Rep. Tim Moore, R-Cleveland, quipped, “You know what they say – duct tape fixes everything.”

Why don’t we just duct tape your mouth shut! Honestly, if this is going to be a law for women it should be for men as well. I’m all about equality.

But don’t they have more important things to worry about, like unemployment? Guess they could always open up a bra factory.

I think it’s “breast” that they veto this bill.

And that’s today’s helping of The Online Dish with Maggie.
