Sen. Chuck Schumer Goes After the Laaaaasers
Who said the economy was at the top of our national priorities list? Who cares about Iran? The real problem in this country doesn't lie in our deficit or our debt; it's those damn laser pointers we use with our PowerPoints.
Regardless of the Internet side to this imminent problem, Schumer is also calling on the F.D.A. to get its act together and start labeling lasers with warnings that basically say 'DON'T POINT THIS AT A PLANE.' The act of actually going through with it will lead to a federal offense charge so keep your pointers down.
