My mother used to say that everyone in life has their purpose, even if it’s to serve as a bad example. It seems that Britney Spears has reached that point, at least as far as certain lawmakers in Massachusetts are concerned.
They are proposing a Britney Spears law in the Commonwealth. And no, it will not require ladies to wear undergarments. Rather, it was inspired by an earlier act of Ms. Spears, when she was videotaped driving around with her baby in her lap. Under the law, all children under the age of 8 or shorter than 4’9″ must be restrained in car seats.
I’m no expert, but I think the height requirement might be a bit high. Other than that, though, I think it’s a grand idea. Here in New Hampshire, while we have no mandatory seat belt laws for adults, children must be restrained and protected — and I agree wholeheartedly with that. Once you’re above the age of 18, you’re free to be as much of an idiot as you like. Before that, though, we’re going to protect you from yourself, so buckle up — or else.
Here’s hoping that they don’t keep following Ms. Spears’ misadventures, though, and try to pass a “Britney Spears No Going Commando” law next.
