Did you know that it is against the law in Mississippi for a male to appear in public in a discernibly turgid state?
*wondering if they enforce this for middle school boys at public swimming pools*

You know, don't you, Skip, that the website you linked to is a "humor" site. The tar and feathers proposal sort of gives it away.

I see that "the possession of breasts, or the existence of a naked individual underneath the clothing" is also covered by the legislation.
OK, but it's still true.
They don't miss a trick in Mississippi. Especially concerning...you know...the "s" word.

Oh my, I just spent about five solid minutes laughing myself almost to sickness... discernibly turgid!! Those links are priceless. Thanks!

I love the precision in the law's language: "the postpubertal human female breast below a point immediately above the top of the areola." I wonder how long it took to come up with that, or how they would determine that point in a court case?
I can just imagine a bunch of smartass law clerks sitting around trying to work out how to define tits as they draft the bill.

I like how public display is defined, in part, as "in such a manner that it may be readily seen by the public by normal unaided vision."
So Superman and his X-ray vision are apparently exempt. Or...you know, people who wear glasses.

The actual draft of the law is funnier than the humorous website. And much scarier.
