Outlaw puppeteer
« on: April 04, 2008, 08:04 AM NHFT »

According to this statute:

RS 286:1

it is illegal in New Hampshire it exhibit a puppet show for pay without a license (among other things including rope-dancing and card tricks).

Outlaw puppeteer anyone?  I can think of some appropriate themes for the puppet story.

Here's another one:

In the city of Manchester, it is illegal to exhibit "natural or artificial curiosities" outdoors after 10:00 pm or indoors before 9:00 am without a license.  Ordinances ยง 111.71

And even with a license it is illegal to do so for more than two days in a row.

I think those are excellent cases for CD.  It's much easier to build the rep you want by starting with the cases that most people would agree are stupid.  Also, the more you keep the politickians busy with little crap like that, the less time they have to push nasty stuff on us all.

Keeping them busy is right.  This statute makes it mandatory for town selectmen to prosecute every illegal puppet-show.  I would find it highly amusing if an outlaw puppeteer sued the city for not imposing the penalty on him.

OMG... that could be... huge
WMUR & NECN would cover it, at very least. Could go national.
Fucking gorgeous.

ok i am looking into this.  The main problem i would see with me doing this is i think there is a good chance if i don't do it....one of you will.  i can always do the tsa thing.   one of you can always do this.  I'm not likely to do both.

but my gosh we could really make this rock...

those are my first impressions.

You think she's a puppet... you should the the sorry stiff wooden pawns upon whose strings she pulls:

This man is a puppet and tool of the NH Attorney General.

Here's another thought: if enforcement is mandatory (supposedly), what if a couple hundred people coordinated and put an outlaw puppet show on every street corner in town at once?

Actually, I don't know if I like that idea.  If all the cops in town were enforcing the anti-puppet-show law, it might encourage some actual real crime while they're distracted.  I'd hate to get blamed for the successful escape of a bank robber or something.

kelly ayotte could be one of the puppets and we could do it right outside her office since she's probably the prosecuting arm.

Town selectmen are the ones required to enforce the law.  The puppet show could be right outside the town hall during a meeting of the selectmen.  Someone could go into the meeting and report on the crime emergency transpiring outside, etc.
