Over at Begging the Question, one of them confesses here to reading SW Virginia law blog, and in particular the story of the blue law snafu, which of course reminds him of a Simpsons episode:
"This also reminds me of a funny "Simpsons" episode written by Conan O'Brien. It's the one with the monorail, and when the monorail goes out of control, Mayor Quimby and Chief Wiggum scour the town charter to determine who has final authority in a crisis. They get off track (pun intended) when Wiggum discovers that, "as Chief Constable, I'm supposed to get a pig each month, and 'two comely lasses of virtue true'!" Quimby: "How many broads do I get?" Well, despite the fun stuff one can find in old laws, I hope the outdated stuff is culled more carefully than Virginia has done. Or perhaps this is all happening because the governor and attorney general can't agree on who gets how many comely lasses."
