No Lineage Over Linguine

Three legislators in Mississippi want to ban restaurants from serving obese people. Robert St. John proposes some additional legislation:

The Delta Heritage Law: HB 282D would require all citizens of the Mississippi Delta to limit their ancestral discussions to a minimum of 45 minutes per dining period. During the allotted time period, said genealogy buff may only go back four generations without receiving a warning citation. If subject traces his or her lineage all the way back to the Civil War during one meal period, a $75 fine shall be levied (Revolutionary War descendant discussions will result in mandatory jail time). This law also applies to relations' choice of college, which sorority their grandmother joined, and which tract of land their family owned 150 years ago. [Link]
