Things That Should Probably Be Illegal

Just for fun.

  • Any movie featuring both Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal.
  • Any more “Chicken Soup for the [insert person, such as astronaut] Soul books.
  • Letting George Lucas anywhere near a camera.
  • Attaching the word “extreme” to something that isn’t, specifically deodorant or shampoo.
  • Bible covers with any of the following on the front: Bald Eagle, very caucasian looking Jesus, the praying hands.
  • Talking loudly on a cellphone, as if you were communicating with someone in space [I think I do this sometimes].
  • Air quotes, except in extreme circumstances.
  • The phrase “it’s not so much the heat, but the humidity that gets you”.
  • Letting Stephen ride a scooter.
  • Letting Stephen do these silly lists.

Many more things need to be made illegal. What would you add?

  1. Gavin says

    The phrase, “we are not under law, but grace”, ought to be illegal. But come to think of it, that’s actually a fairly good reason why not to make lists of things that ought to be illegal. …Another thing that ought to be illegal: making things that were already quite easy, even more “instant”; such as “Instant Mac & Cheese.”

      Gavin – But instant Mac & Cheese has saved me so much time!

      Terry – So the question is, did you get your sermon done?

      Paul – Making laws to do what? I couldn’t follow.

      Stephanie – Please stop saying it. We’ll all be better off.

    Saying “God told me that we should do X in situation Y”, where X is a specific course of action and Y is a situation where wisdom and unity are necessary.
    Making laws to make anything illegal that isn’t already.

    Aah… I put nice xhtml in my comment above to make it appear as a list but it doesn’t appear formatted correctly. It should read:

    * Saying “God told me that we should do X in situation Y”, where X is a specific course of action and Y is a situation where wisdom and unity are necessary.

    * Making laws to make anything illegal that isn’t already.

    * Chrome car decals with any combination of fish with or without legs eating each other.

    * “As seen on TV”

    * Those fliers they put under your windshield wiper that you don’t notice are there until you are driving on the highway and it starts to rain.
