Strange California laws

After following [Bad username: elynne's] link to the Ringtail Cat page, I went to the California Code to find out what animals are illegal to keep as pets in California, and discovered that it's illegal to keep slugs (without a permit).

I also discovered that in California, "porcelain painting and stained glass artistry shall be considered a fine art and not a craft."

It's always nice when civil disobedience can be done at home, sitting in one's easy chair, without interacting with a single soul. Illegal to consider. Goodness.

Aw, I'm [Bad username in LJ tag]! :P ;)

It's illegal to keep slugs without a permit? How strange. Also, I'm with rivka re: being able to break the law while sitting at home doing nothing. That's kind of cool. :D

Bad username. No more undulations for you today.

(I typed [lj user=elynne's] rather than elynne's.)

Now I'm going to live in fear that some animal control officer is going to come around to my house and arrest me for letting my illegal slugs out into the garden without a leash.

"But they're not my slugs! They're wild!"

"A likely story."

This will be a new cop show on Animal Planet: The Midnight Raids of the California Slug Police

Yah, I do that with usernames fairly frequently. :)

Somehow, I doubt that the show would feature much in the way of high-speed chases... though they could show the police, uh, S-9 unit, slugs trained to sniff out other, illegally kept slugs. And they could do other important things for their police partners, too, like... um... okay, I can't think of anything just at this moment, but I'm sure I'll come up with something eventually.
