    BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF HAWAII:

    As used in this section:
    "Pocket knife" means a knife with a blade that folds into the handle and which is suitable for carrying in the pocket."
    SECTION 2. Upon the effective date of this Act, no person shall import or manufacture pocket knives into the State for the purpose of selling or distributing pocket knives.

    I now Wonder how long it will take these morons to pass a law the states that all forks must now be made with the designation of "sporks"?
    Completely rounded off tips so they are worthless to pick up foods, so we can all go back to eating pablum and baby foods!
    Next:
    "ZIPPERS"
    The curse of man!
    Button manufacturers rejoice!
    Then we'll have to do something about paper....those edges are deadly and cause really painful cuts!
    Either this entire country is on drugs, or should be!

    How long TIL they ban ALL tools? Hammers (bludgeoning weapons!), saws (truly diabolical ripping and tearing wounds!), screwdrivers (deep puncture wounds!) and duct tape (bondage devices!). Even the lowly sockets can cause deaths if swallowed!! HORRORS!

    From now on, ANY repair or service jobs MUST be performed by bonded, licensed and watch-dogged State-Mandated Service&Repair Technicians, employing legally registered tools! Costs will be adjusted accordingly. :rolleyes:

    Welcome to The Ultimate Nanny State.

    I guess the next thing is to ban all knives, including kitchen tools. You'll be obliged to buy your roasts pre-sliced at a registered butcher shop, and spread butter with the back side of a spork which will have to have edges and points ground to a certain radius so it can't cut.

    What silliness. Valkman, get your paperwork in early for registering as a licensed supplier to butcher shops.
