Arizona approves fireworks, bans human-animal hybrids

Posted on Categories UncategorizedTags

Florida used to be the state that produced weird news, but recently it has been Arizona that has been capturing the headlines. Governor Jan Brewer recently signed into law dozens of bills, one of which allows the sale of certain kinds of fireworks, including ground and hand-held devices such as sparklers, spinning wheels, and smoke devices. The law bans fireworks intended to rise above the ground, such as bottle rockets or roman candles. It allows cities to ban the use of fireworks within their boundaries. Bobby Ruiz, an Assistant Chief for the Phoenix Fire Department said, “Now, we’re going to have more kids with matches and playing with fireworks that put out a lot of sparks and easily ignite dry vegetation.”

Another law signed by the governor bans the use of human embryos for creating “human-animal hybrids”.  Whew. I’m glad she took care of that issue.

  1. Since I’m from Florida, I’m glad that Arizona is taking over the weirdness label! But wait, what about human-animal hybrids that pack fireworks??

  2. Now if Arizona can just get control over all of those undocumented illegal Canadians that infiltrate the State every winter. Seems to me that white haired Caucasians are really suspect as being alien Canadians? Maybe we can turn them into a wildfire suppression crew, eh?
