C'mon, What Else Is There To Do In Tallahassee?

The Florida state legislature is considering a ban on bestiality. If passed, this would this would knock down to 15 the number of states left in the US where a man and a sheep can party like the Greeks of old. (You know the ones I mean.)

The best part of this story from the Miami Herald is this bit where Democratic State Senator Larcenia Bullard had a bit of trouble understanding the concept of "animal husbandry":
Rich's legislation would target only those who derived or helped others derive ''sexual gratification'' from an animal, specifying that conventional dog-judging contests and animal-husbandry practices are permissible.

That last provision tripped up Miami Democratic Sen. Larcenia Bullard.

''People are taking these animals as their husbands? What's husbandry?'' she asked. Some senators stifled their laughter as Sen. Charlie Dean, an Inverness Republican, explained that husbandry is raising and caring for animals. Bullard didn't get it.

''So that maybe was the reason the lady was so upset about that monkey?'' Bullard asked, referring to a Connecticut case where a woman's suburban chimpanzee went mad and was shot.
