Santa Barbara Authorizes Jail Time for Handing Out Straws

The city of Santa Barbara has passed an ordinance that will allow restaurant employees to be punished with up to six months of jail time or a $1,000 fine for giving plastic straws to their customers, reports National Review.

The bill was passed unanimously last Tuesday, and covers bars, restaurants, and other food-service businesses. Establishments will still be allowed to hand out plastic stirrers, but only if customers request them.

This anti-straw movement is completely bizarre.

These people are busybodies on steroids who have severe wires crossed between logic and analysis and emotions. In this case the emotional desire to boss others around.

What they people need are immediate proctology exams with straws.
