I’m not making this up. You can’t make up this kind of stuff.
A story came across my Inbox this morning about a Montana legislator who introduced a bill extending the definition of “indecent exposure” in his state to encompass yoga pants. Rep. David Moore, a Republican (I know; redundant, right?) David Moore introduced the bill, which a committee of the legislature immediately tabled among much chuckling. Moore, however, was undaunted. He allowed as how he wouldn’t be opposed to arresting people for “wearing such provocative clothing such as tight-fitting beige garments.”
As strange as I found that account, I was stunned by the closing sentence on the AP wire story on the incident. “Currently, a person convicted of indecent exposure three times in Montana can be sentenced to life in jail and up to $10,000.”
See? Not all of the backward thinking in this country takes place south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Big Sky Country can get into the act as well.
