Mehhh. Not harsh enough. They should also ban the public use of cellphones and texting in restaurants and movie theatres.
That s&*t is annoying.
How will they ban farting?
Butt they will allow outdoor boinking
Ask Mein Fluffer.
Pole smoking is still permissible in West Hollyweird.
West Hollywood will continue to permit gay sex in public places, all over the city in fact, but is going to ban smoking. Inmates. Asylum. In charge of.
Which article of the founding documents guarantees your right to live life without annoyance?
Sad thing is they will still allow outdoor pole smoking...
In West Hollywood, I doubt anyone has the sphincter tone to contain gas long enough for a fart to develop.
The smoking ban is all about annoyance, not about health. Certainly outdoors.
If the nannystate is going to impose that edict, then get them to turn off the digital pacifiers. “clickity click click clickity click”.
I’m paying for a meal or a movie and don’t need to be disturbed by someone’s glowing toy.
Time was people didn’t talk on the phone at dinner “We’re eating, call back later.”
It’s OK,, the soon to be legal pot smokers will fight this ban to the last hit , I’m sure. ;-)
This state is full of goofballs. unfortunately, many of them also occupy elected offices.
And just think of all the morons in this country who thought these smoking bans were about “second-hand smoke”. ROTFL!!! What a bunch of gullible idiots. They were about banning freedom.
It’s more than annoying. Texting is downright dangerous but you see people driving at 65 MPH or more while doing so.
Now coming to restaurant near you.....an obese section w/ a special menu designed by the government. Ha! Will that be a table for 2 in the “big section”?
Only in CA
The behavior nazis are just getting started. All of those things that they find annoying will be Verboten. Those things of which they approve will become mandatory. Your children will be required to become practicing bisexuals before advancing to the 3d grade.
Amazing, a constitutional law professor scheming this ban up. His classes must be fact-filled, hope he grades on the curve...
From the same city that encourages and promotes homosexual behavior that kills people every year and is linked with an incredible rate of suicide.
Dining establishments in West Hollywood is the last place on earth to eat unless you don’t care if a faggot preps you food.
Am I the only one who finds the lame attempt using a fallacy appealing to authority.
You know, banning really fat people,controlling twits and ugly people would make for a "more enjoyable atmosphere" for the public, too.
