And there was mass hysteria.
2004-11-29 09:07:41 PM  
as many wives as you want, child brides at 14, but godammit, no dogs and cats living together!

Kudos to the submitter...

Bout damn time! Funny how they just approved same sex marriage and legalized drugs though. Who would have thought the Mormons would have approved of that?
2004-11-29 09:10:08 PM  
Dogs and cats, living together, mass hysteria!
2004-11-29 09:11:16 PM  
Dogs and cats living together, MASS HYSTERIA!!!!!
2004-11-29 09:11:35 PM  
second best line:

"It's true your honor. This man has no dick."
2004-11-29 09:12:00 PM  
Sorry Silent, didnt see it
2004-11-29 09:12:01 PM  
God said dogs and cats living together is unnatural.

i second kudos to the submitter. I rarely laugh out loud at headlines anymore, but this one had me.

Two cat threads in like 15 minutes.

Great headline. Great movie. Great legislation. Everyone wins here.
2004-11-29 09:20:42 PM  
Dogs and cats living together is a horrible idea. Next thing you know there will be little puttens and kippies everywhere.
2004-11-29 09:21:12 PM  
As far as I know, there are absolutely no municipal laws like this one in ALL OF CANADA.

/American society sure is strange
2004-11-29 09:22:51 PM  
It's a little-known fact of historical irony that Utah was the 36th, and thus deciding, state to vote to repeal alcohol prohibition.
2004-11-29 09:22:51 PM  
We need some cute cats on this thread to avert a possible flame war.

/if there are really that many mormons on here supporting the anti-cat/dog mutual living law
2004-11-29 09:24:00 PM  
Heh, if you think that's a strange law, in a small town in Alabama it's against the law to whale fish from your car. (realize that alabama is landlocked)
2004-11-29 09:24:35 PM  
Hate the meow, not the meower.
2004-11-29 09:24:55 PM  
I'm sorry, but hands down, the single best line from that movie (or any other movie in history) is: "When somebody asks if you are a God, you say YES!"

Oh, and on the Mormons, I'm currently living here (Job moved me) and they are kooky folks... Nuf said...
2004-11-29 09:25:04 PM  
the flowers...are still...standing!

2004-11-29 09:25:16 PM  
Nice to see a little hometown craziness descend upon the land of Fark for a while . . . You're all a little bit closer to understanding what I go through, specifically as a non-Mormon, but also just as a non-Christian, living in the State of Utah.
2004-11-29 09:25:55 PM  
Will there be forced busing?

2004-11-29 09:30:33 PM  
granted i've never been but i thought the tip of Alabama touches the gulf of mexico?
2004-11-29 09:30:58 PM  
Ummmmm, Alabama isn't landlocked.
2004-11-29 09:31:08 PM  

Alabama is NOT landlocked! Mobile Bay is there. Hurricane Ivan kicked their collective ass.
2004-11-29 09:31:44 PM  
Does anyone know what the given reason for the law in the first place? I'm genuinely curious.

/let's show this prehistoric biatch how we do things downtown

Heh, if you think that's a strange law, in a small town in Alabama it's against the law to whale fish from your car. (realize that alabama is landlocked)

does that mean there's no fish in alabama?

the hell if i'm going to a seafood restaurant in alabama any time soon.

Utah , enough said
2004-11-29 09:34:55 PM  
"This reminds me of the time you tried to drill a hole through your head. Remember that?"

"That would have worked if you hadn't stopped me."
2004-11-29 09:35:04 PM  
As a Provoan, let me express joy and relief that the reign of terror is over.

Would this be news if it happened somewhere other than Utah?

Yeah, I guess it would...

Too bad it was Utah, this is a pretty funny story but the thread will just devolve into mormon-bashing.
2004-11-29 09:35:44 PM  
Next thing you know, they'll be making special greeting cards for your Dogcat.
2004-11-29 09:36:12 PM  
While the anti-dog-on-cat-lovin' aspect of the rule seems odd, I fully support the no-more-than-two-dogs-or-two-cats portion of the law. Remember, kids, polygamy is wrong, even doggy polygamy.

But wait a minute. This means that, if you have a proper two-dogs-or-two-cats family, you have to give away the offspring as soon as they're born. Or else get a doggy/kitty abortion. That doesn't seem very family-values-like.

Prudishness is awkward sometimes.
2004-11-29 09:37:22 PM  
But isn't it still illegal to dance without shoes in Utah?
2004-11-29 09:38:22 PM  
Are you, Utah, currently menstruating?
2004-11-29 09:40:06 PM  
Let me just say that although I am not a mormon, I know a few of them and they are very nice people and have never tried to convert me... heck, I didn't even KNOW they were mormons until I asked what religious faith (if any) they belonged to. All you biased assholes make me sick. That is all.
2004-11-29 09:40:22 PM  
The next law scheduled to be repealed banned the keeping of elephants and mice together.
2004-11-29 09:41:36 PM  
Wait, I thought the mass hysteria came after the cats and dogs living together, which comes after the darkness, locusts, plauges, and whathaveyou.

Maybe now you'll never slime a guy with a positron collider, huh?
2004-11-29 09:42:18 PM  
Mugato What has that got to do with it?

you may also be interested to know that the 'That would've worked if you hadn't stopped me' line was improvised.
2004-11-29 09:42:23 PM  
They need to put a stop to this immoral behavior! Next thing you know...

Gozer the Traveler! He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the Rectification of the Vuldronaii, the Traveler came as a large and moving Torb! Then, during the Third Reconciliation of the Last of the Meketrex Supplicants, they chose a new form for him, that of a giant Sloar! Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of a Sloar that day, I can tell you!

I looked at the trap Ray.

Everything was fine until the grid was shut down by Mr. Dickless here.

Is this true?

Yes it's true, this man has no dick.

IBelieveYouHaveMyStapler: Too bad we crazy Utahns voted to ban gay marriage or anything that gives equal protection under the law.
