Cockfighting

This is from the Houston Chronicle-- it's not a joke. But still....oh so funny:

------------------------------------------------------
Lawmakers wants to revive cockfights - with tiny gloves
-------------------------------------------------------

Reuters News Service

OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma senator hopes to revive cockfighting in the
state by putting tiny boxing gloves on the roosters instead of razors.

The Oklahoma legislature outlawed the blood sport in 2002 because of
its cruelty to the roosters, which are slashed and pecked to death
while human spectators bet on the outcome.

But State Sen. Frank Shurden, a Democrat from Henryetta and a long-time
defender of cockfighting, said the ban had wiped out a $100-million
business.

To try to revive it, he has proposed that roosters wear little boxing
gloves attached to their spurs, as well as lightweight, chicken-sized
vests configured with electronic sensors to record hits and help keep
score.

"It's like the fencing that you see on the Olympics, you know, where
they have little balls on the ends of the swords and the fencers wear
vests," said Shurden. "That's the same application that would be
applied to the roosters."

Janet Halliburton, president of the Oklahoma Coalition Against
Cockfighting, which led the drive for the 2002 law, said Shurden is
really seeking to loosen the ban.

"What this is going to do is make a platform for him to continually try
to amend the existing ban," Halliburton told The Oklahoman newspaper.

The State Senate will consider Shurden's proposal next month.

OMG, that really is funny! But does anyone see the amount of money that will be required to make electronic vests and boxing gloves that small?

yeah, they could be using that time to make a ban on saggy pants.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
