Joining the borg

It seems that "Warning: Do not huff the sparkleponies" is the popular choice for the new meaning of the sign from the other day. I hear sparkleponies are about to be outlawed under the analog law anyway, due to their molecular similarity to kittens. Applying warning labels comes under self-regulation and we all know that that doesn't work when the manufacturers are all just out to make a quick buck regardless of the safety of their customers. What's that? The government should regulate? Why on earth should they do that when they can ban instead?

So I suggest that you start stockpiling sparkleponies pretty soon, and if you're entrepreneurial you could start bagging them up and selling them as Huffing Kittens and hope nobody notices. The government will pat itself on the back about how it's stamped out sparklepony use because nobody's seeking them out any more, and kitten huffing will become more dangerous, but who cares about that?

That above? That's called stretching an analogy way too far for my own amusement.

Don't know/don't care? I'd be interested in hearing your opinions about this. I would have preferred to post it with no context, but unfortunately I can't figure out how to embed it. I'm interested in what you take from it compared with what it says is happening. It's a conversation between a man and a woman.

Still don't know/don't care? Remember folks, from now on your kittens could contain traces of these:
