WHERE THE PORK BARREL POLITICS HITS THE ROAD

Who says Republicans and Democrats can’t agree on anything? On October 30, the Ohio House of Representatives voted 94-1 in favor of House Bill 199, which would permit drivers who hit and kill a feral hog or wild boar to keep the dead animal …. provided they report it within 24 hours to local wildlife or law enforcement officials, who would be required to come to the driver’s residence, conduct an investigation, and issue a certificate of ownership for the roadkill.

The bill next goes for consideration to the Ohio Senate, where Senator Kevin Bacon, a Republican from Minerva Park, Ohio, is expected to take a short break from wallowing in the mud in order to vote “Oink” (which is pig Latin for “whatever”), provided violators are sent to the pen. The Senator’s lack of opposition to the bill is expected to meat with his constituents’ approval, the price of Bacon being what it is these days.

Road hogs beware!

    I guess we could call this the bringing home the bacon and then frying it up in the pan bill.

    I hope the Ohio Senate approves this bill fast – I can hardly wait to drive out to the boonies and “take out” some feral hog crossing the road – which raises the question: “Why was the wild hog crossing the road?” Because it was “boared” to death – hahahahahaa..
