While I have nothing specific against the LA city Council, considering the counselors are politicians… Headline:
BRO’S BEFORE HO’S

So…how long until they declare their candidacy?

Think globally, party locally

Out of curiosity, what exactly was the city council trying to crack down on? How does one ban “house parties”? I understand things like noise ordinances, and street parking rules, and laws about public drinking and public decency, and so on. But parties themselves?

It was a good laugh in a sad way.

I thought the usual technique was to ban tangentially associated things, like having a couch on a lawn, or a chandelier hanging from a tree. Srsly bro if I can’t have my chandelier I may as well stay home and study.

It’s nice to see cheeky, fun bros for a change instead of mean rapey ones.


#12

I can’t tell exactly how tongue in cheek this is supposed to be.

Ecclesiastes assures us… that there is a time for every purpose under heaven. A time to laugh… and a time to weep. A time to mourn… and there is a time to dance.

That was EPIC! I, too, didn’t know if I could bench two plates and when the captain of my water polo team made me shotgun a keg of Bud Lite I knew I was a man, thanks to house parties.

In the immortal words of the Beastie Boys: You have to fight for your right to party.

Okay. So if they ban house parties, How is that going to be exactly defined? They will stop having house parties, and have “Church” meet ups, “sales” seminars, and “study” group instead.

I for one support this legislation. John Garabedian spent like 30 year with the same formula. It has been on the air way, way too long.

Wait, it looks like some new guy named Kannon does it now. Will it never end?

how about not insulting sex workers by comparing them to politicians. :wink:
