Rules, Regulations and Laws

A Silly Law in Hood River, Oregon

Juggling is strictly prohibited
Without a license.
What? Are you kidding?
It doesn't make sense.
This is silly and who wrote this law?
That idiot unable to catch a chain saw.

Good thing these guys were in Portland, Oregon
and then last but NOT least:

Love it, have a juggling cousin who got his start busking in the Pike Place Market, no license required. Juggling chainsaws from the Discovery Channel. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbMvxLRdpm0

I tried for months and months to learn how to juggle. I couldn't do it, so I just love to see juggling acts.

Indeed. Short and sharp and good.
