Idiots Out, Clothes Pins In


New Jersey is thinking about cutting the word 'idiot' from its constitution.

State Senate President Richard Codey actually introduced a bill to eliminate a section that says "no idiot or insane person should enjoy the right of suffrage".

Codey, a Democrat, was previously acting governor of New Jersey. He said that the term "idiot" is "outdated, vague, offensive to many and may be subject to misinterpretation."

Also, it tends to be used only by Republicans.

In related news, New York says that the bad smell Monday that covered Manhattan “like a sheet” came from … yep, you guessed it, New Joisey. New Jerseians answered the accusation with clothes pins attached to their middle fingers.

Possible Source of the Bad Smell over NYC:

1. Hillary opened an advance copy of Bush’s Iraq plan in Newark airport.

2. Monday washday at Tony Soprano’s after two three-day weekends.

3. They finally found Jimmy Hoffa’s body.

4. Rosie and The Donald took their feud outside.

5. Paris Hilton and Britney Spears both got out of the same limo simultaneously, sans culottes.

    Kenju, I'd like to see a lot LESS of those two, wouldn't you?

    Brilliant. These are just stinkin' brilliant!

    I'm worried, though...if they remove the word 'idiot,' what will we call those people then? Oh, right. Democrats.

    BWAH HA HA! I kill me sometimes!
