Shake 'em, bake 'em... Texas style

I just found this little nugget in The Age.

It seems that the House of Reps in that law hungry state of Texas have put a ban on cheerleaders "shaking booty" during their routines.

Some highlights for mine are:
  • "People are calling and telling me how disgusting it is to see sexually suggestive routines on the part of marching units or cheerleaders" (Al Edwards, Houston State Rep., bill sponsorer) Marching units? That's some sweet multi-tasking. I used to play the clarinet in Band at high school (shut up!), granted it wasn't a marching unit, but it never crossed my mind to 'shake it'.
  • "He (Al) complained of cheerleaders 'shaking their behinds, breaking it down'" Maybe i had Al all wrong, he seems totally wit all da new fangled kidspeak. Break it down, Al! Boo-yow!

At least there's Senfronia Thompson, a Democratic Rep also of Houston, who said "the bill was a waste of valuable time." Werd, Senfronia.

Personally I can't think of anyone that comes from Texas that would be a booty shaker, aren't they all riding horses and shootin' stuff that moves? oh, wait...
