Cow tipping and dwarf tossing

Cow tipping:

From "The Statics of Cow Tipping," by Matt Semke of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Engineering and Technology:

"According to these numbers, cow tipping is possible when two people are in on the prank."

Florida Senate bill:

... "It is third-degree felony for person to intentionally drag or fell by tail a bovine animal in organized sports exhibition;"

In Florida, some of you might know, dwarf tossing also is illegal.

As well as in New York.

Soon, the worlds will follow:

United Nations: Rights Panel Upholds 'Dwarf Tossing' Ban --New York Times

Dwarf contest causes row --Manchester Evening News

Alas, I'm getting ahead of myself, since I was exclusively talking about animals.

Stupid human laws for stupid humans might have to be a topic for another day.
