    England Went From Guns, To Spoons

    This better not be what we have to look forward to. Having to be of age to buy a spoon. Just for this I think I'll sharpen a couple spoons and keep them in the back of the drawer.

    Without strict over site, England could see an outbreak of serial spooners.

    While [the gun] gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks. -TJ

    Another link on the same page that caught my eye: "Street Assault Victim Lucky to Escape Death". Don't think having a whole pocketful of potentially deadly teaspoons would've helped that poor bugger much

    I am relatively sure that when one is in prison they have to account for all their utensils....

    That is going to be my new catchphrase for the day - "Spoon!"

    Just searched a little to see how people over in UK were reacting to this story. They all seemed to agree it was an error in the computer. Claimed it rang the spoon up as cutlery. Nobody mentioned how idiotic it was that they had to be at least 18 to buy a knife. They've just given up, it's sad.

    Gonna guess that now some ***hat will look for a way to actually make it illegal for anyone under 18 to buy a spoon. Why not? The UK forum people were saying how different movies used spoons for violence, plus certain drugs require the use of a spoon. Think I saw in a movie where they used foil for drug use. So much for the hats.

    The Brits folded their tin foil hats into spoons. Thats how their Government turned them into complacent sheep.
