What’s next? Outlawing sledding? Swimming in a public pool?

‘for our own good’, of course.

Snowball fights.

A Wisconsin city has made it illegal to throw snowballs — ranking them alongside rocks and arrows as an outlawed weapon.

“No person shall throw or shoot any object, arrow, stone, snowball or other missile or projectile, by hand or by any other means, at any other person,” the municipal code in Wausau reads.

The ordinance, under the section for “weapons,” also says snowballs cannot be thrown “at, in or into any building, street, sidewalk, alley, highway, park, playground or other public place within the city.”

“It’s really in the interest of public safety,” Wausau Mayor Robert B. Mielke told WCCO of the ruling he actually introduced a few years ago.

Arrows?

Stones?

What about water balloons, can we have a ruling on them, too your majesty?

Whatever happened to the old days were common sense was a guiding principle?
