Once Again, The Green Goofs Prove How Stupid They Really Are

Seriously, you flaming bags of stupid might want to research some of your work before trying to "save" the rivers, mmmkay?

Oh, and an extra heaping of civic pride on my part, as my home state proves once again how retarded we really are.

The law was intended to reduce the floating debris from abandoned foam coolers in the state's waterways. But lawmakers, apparently a little rusty with chemistry, barred the wrong plastic.

The white foam coolers commonly called "Styrofoam" are made from expanded polystyrene. But the law bars polypropylene. That's a plastic found in things like dishwasher-safe plastic containers but not usually used to ferry drinks down a river.

The mix up means river floaters can use foam coolers without fear. But someone caught with a dishwasher-safe plastic container could risk up to a year in jail.
