There’s always something to howl about

California’s State Mascot: the Super Nanny

I’m just throwing out a guess here, but I’ll bet man has been burning wood and creating fire for around 40,000 years.  Fire: creator of warmth, food, light… you get the picture.  Basically, it comes down to this: if you’re in the wild and you can’t get a branch lit, odds are your odds are short.

Except, of course, here in California.  Here in California (State Motto: Don’t do Nuthin’ Till We Tell You the Right Way to Do It), the state in its infinite (and infinitely superior) wisdom, knows better.  No, I’m serious.  California (State Bird: the Red Ink Buttinski) actually thinks for us.  As a matter of fact, the state of California (State Seal: the Finger Wagging Nanny) states very clearly in this Warning found hanging by my firewood, that ideas and concepts are known by it.

All I can think of now is all the fires over all the millenia… those poor saps.  Thank the god of Nannidom I’m taken care of here in California (State Song: “I’ll Be Watching You” by Sting… which is also the State MO).

    Let’s bring some California politicians over to my home state in Wisconsin. Give those politicians some dry firewood and a small propane torch. Say they come in December where the days are mid 20’s and the nights, well you can only guess. That way they have a choice. Frost bite which causes severe pain and ultimately death or comfort in a small wood burning fire pit.

    California, please grow a brain. As a matter of fact, form your own socialist heavyily taxed country and leave us out of your political pipeline.

    Actually I thought this was the California State Song. Perhaps I was mistaken.

    Look at it this way—if you can survive your Nanny, then you can probably survive anything. Of course, that leaves open an important question for all of us—can we survive our Nanny?

    California is the Cuba of America. They’ve also become a caricature of themselves.

    Wow…so, uh, soon we won’t be able to burn wood anymore here in Kalifornia? It’s amazing that we have survived as a species for all these years, even without these very important Prop 65 warnings!

    California is all about disclosure..haha! I burn wood all day for bonfires at the beach during the summer! It’s great to know that I’m part of this growing epidemic…
