Advanced European thought

My German is just this side of nonexistent, so while you get the original link, the blockquote comes from a translation posted at Gates of Vienna:

At the instigation of a mentally unbalanced bee-keeper, the similarly unbalanced European Court (EuGH), the highest court in the EUSSR, is considering whether honeybees are allowed to approach genetically modified plants and take their pollen. If they are not, then, first, the resultant honey must be removed from supermarket shelves and burned in a carbon-neutral fashion. Second, bees will be forbidden to approach inappropriate blossoms.

Meanwhile in Sacramento, an Assembly member is asking herself: “Why didn’t we think of that?”

    You know it’s bad news when the story makes you respond with “Can’t tell if trolling or…”

    More and more, I find myself reacting that way to what’s going on in the world.

    Where a European court is involved, even the Laws of Nature are subject to challenge.
