Reason Why We Have Moronic Laws

There’s a story about a priest who once used a computer software to automatically changed the names on his services.

One day, while preparing a funeral service guide, he went from a deceased person named Mary to a deceased person named Edna.

The day of Edna’s funeral, everything was going smoothly – until the congregation reached the Apostle’s Creed.

“I believe in Jesus Christ,” they read, “conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Edna.”

The bar seems to be getting lower and lower for some of our legislators who can’t stop pushing for moronic laws.

Take for example the much-decried law about car seats for children.

Sure, it has noble intentions – keeping our children safe inside their cars – but the way some of our officials explained the law made it look dumb enough to earn the ire of the public.

I’m not just talking about the remarks of a Land Transportation Office official who advised parents whose children are bigger than standard to “get bigger cars.”

The [former] senator who authored the law now says parents must buy car seats for children to be used for taxis and other public transport.

Netizens say if that’s the case, then we shouldn’t have children at all.

By the way, I just heard that senator is rumored to be running again for senator in next year’s polls.

He’s just given voters all the more reason not to vote for him.

Some dire news: in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, inflation has once again zoomed to 4.2 percent last month.

For an economy struggling to recover from the effects of the pandemic, this trend is very worrisome.

Not only does this mean that the peso’s purchasing power will be reduced, this means lower revenues for our businesses as people scrimp on their last centavo.

A man is in the hospital waiting for a brain transplant.

The doctor comes to his room and says, “Well, the good news is that you ARE going to get a brain. The bad news is that your insurance won’t cover it all. So we’re going to give you three choices, and decide which one you can afford.”

The man says, “OK, what are those choices?”

“Well, there’s engineer brain, at $100 an ounce. Then there’s astrophysicist brain at $200 an ounce. Finally, there’s economist brain – that’s the most expensive, at $1,000 an ounce.”

“Absurd!” the patient exclaimed. “Why is economist brain so expensive?”

“Do you have any idea how many economists it takes for us to get an ounce of brain?"
