Nanny State Continued

All blue, baby. Daddy's home.

But even when I win with a beautiful hand like this, I could go to jail because worrywort people help write our laws.

From Slate:

"Various other forms of gambling are entirely illegal, though prevalent and unlikely to get me in trouble. It is technically against the law to participate in an office pool on the NCAA tournament. Betting on a friendly round of golf, chess, or billiards is also a crime. I break the law when I play poker with my buddies, though if I am ever arrested, I plan to point out that Justice Scalia does it, too."
The war on fun continues...
