Montana Republican state Rep. David Moore has a plan to guide America out of the darkness—ban yoga pants.
Moore, who is upset that group of naked bicyclists pedaled through Missoula last year, decided that what his state really needs right now is tighter regulations on trousers. His proposed bill, HB 365, would outlaw not just nudity, but also "any device, costume, or covering that gives the appearance of or simulates the genitals, pubic hair, anus region, or pubic hair region." Per the Billings Gazette:
He just wanted to have an excuse for getting to write all the suggestive body parts down in one sentence. He wouldn't want god to strike him down for his prurient thoughts.
BIG government republicans at it again.
UPDATE: The yoga-ban was tabled. Every once in a while a ray of sanity breaks through the right wing craziness.
