Honolulu City Council proposal would outlaw breathing in public


by Larry Geller

At a hearing last Thursday, the Honolulu City Council proposed a number of bills, one of which would criminalize breathing in public in Waikiki.

Breathing will be allowed in a designated breathing area to be set up on remote Sand Island. The island is separated from mainland Oahu by a drawbridge that can be raised, if necessary, should civil disturbance ensue among the exiles.

City Managing Director  Ember Shinn would not give a completion date for the Sand Island concentration camp. An advocate in the audience was heard to mumble, “Don’t hold your breath.”

When asked whether criminalizing breathing, which after all is a basic bodily function, would fit into Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s program of “compassionate disruption,” a spokesperson for the Mayor replied that of course it would. As to the cost of enforcement, she stated that “In fact, it’s a very modest proposal.”

Love it.
Larry are you trying to see if we are paying attention? If so, you succeeded. LOL.

But how would they tax that?

Requiring those Captcha codes at least temporarily, in the hopes that it quells the flood of comment spam I've been receiving.
