THIS EMERY BOARD KILLS FASCISTS
I've written before about the Free State Project -- the effort by a dedicated band of government-haters to turn New Hampshire into a libertarian paradise, a place Ayn Rand would want to hang her hat if she rose from the dead and walked among us again. Well, now Channel 9 in Manchester tells us that one Free Stater is taking direct action, maaan!
Man Busted For Manicuring Without License
Free-Stater Protests Licensing Laws
CONCORD, N.H. -- A self-proclaimed manicurist decided to open for business in Concord on Monday without the state's approval, attacking state licensing laws with a nail file.
Michael Fisher, 23, of Newmarket, N.H., was arrested and charged with violating the state's license law. He said he organized the protest to call attention to what he said are needless obstacles facing small businesses in the state.
OK -- so far, so good. I'm no libertarian, but I could actually be convinced that some of America's licensing laws are a tad stringent.
However, this is where it gets Pythonesque:
His first and only customer was Kat Dillon, of Frost, Texas, who said it was her first manicure. It was also Fisher's first time giving one.
"I'm going to buff it and shine it with one of these, a buffer, basically," he said....
And then here's the funniest thing I've read all day:
Fisher said his manicure movement was inspired by the movie "Ghandi" ...
Call Richard Attenborough! Call Ridley Scott! I think we have an epic motion picture event in the works! And none of this Orlando Bloom crap -- get Russell Crowe to play the manicurist!
