Everyday Dose Of Reality
This morning started off like every other morning. I get up grab a cup of coffee and sit down to read the latest news before the on-slot of zombie like children crawl out of the rooms to get ready for school. I think I have mentioned before that I am pulled toward a snappy title. “Dwarf tossing ban to be repealed”, now tell me that is not a snappy title! Apparently this dwarf tossing was such an issue in Florida, in 1989 it was banned. Really? How can it now be illegal to throw another human being for fun, geesh no sense of humor these people in Florida’s government.
There is a modern day Robin Hood type, legislator Ritch Workman has filed for the ban to be squished. There seems to be a movement coming from the dwarf community of jobs lost since the ban. Ritch Workan is working for the man, so he can be legally tossed at a wall, our hero.
How dwarf tossing works is the same suggestion I have made for years! There is a wall covered in Velcro and the little person has a suit of Velcro. When the child bugs you to the brink that you fear your brain will ooze out cracks in your skull, you simply stick them to the wall for a few minutes while you regain sanity. Dwarf tossing is much the same. You have the wall, the suit but…the competition is who can throw the dwarf the farthest up the wall. Now, normally this is done in bars, bowling alleys and I have no clue why bowling alleys and taverns. Something just screams in my head, “why on earth would I want a drunk dude tossing me at a wall for money”!? Due to a couple of deaths “The Little People OF America” lobbied for it to be banned in Florida and passed in 1989. I was a senior in high school that year, and I can tell you this much, there is no way in hell I would be a dwarf in a bar during Spring Break!
This is one of those stories in the news that I am going to have to add to my list of “check status” in the near future. I have to run now, there is another article asking what Justin Bieber and a beluga whale have in common.
