A resolution from the Idaho State Legislature has me a bit confused. I suspect it started out ‘straight’ and amendments got added to make fun of it. But I just don’t know for certain. A sample:
5 WHEREAS, the State of Idaho recognizes the vision, talent and creativity 6 of Jared and Jerusha Hess in the writing and production of "Napoleon Dyna- 7 mite"; and 8 WHEREAS, the scenic and beautiful City of Preston, County of Franklin and 9 the State of Idaho are experiencing increased tourism and economic growth; and 10 WHEREAS, filmmaker Jared Hess is a native Idahoan who was educated in the 11 Idaho public school system; and 12 WHEREAS, the Preston High School administration and staff, particularly 13 the cafeteria staff, have enjoyed notoriety and worldwide attention; and 14 WHEREAS, tater tots figure prominently in this film thus promoting Idaho's 15 most famous export; and 16 WHEREAS, the friendship between Napoleon and Pedro has furthered 17 multiethnic relationships; and 18 WHEREAS, Uncle Rico's football skills are a testament to Idaho athletics; 19 and 20 WHEREAS, Napoleon's bicycle and Kip's skateboard promote better air qual- 21 ity and carpooling as alternatives to fuel-dependent methods of transporta- 22 tion; and 23 WHEREAS, Grandma's trip to the St. Anthony Sand Dunes highlights a long- 24 honored Idaho vacation destination; and 25 WHEREAS, Rico and Kip's Tupperware sales and Deb's keychains and glamour 26 shots promote entrepreneurism and self-sufficiency in Idaho's small towns; and 27 WHEREAS, Napoleon's artistic rendition of Trisha is an example of the 28 importance of the visual arts in K-12 education; and 29 WHEREAS, the schoolwide Preston High School student body elections foster 30 an awareness in Idaho's youth of public service and civic duty; and 31 WHEREAS, the "Happy Hands" club and the requirement that candidates for 32 school president present a skit is an example of the importance of theater 33 arts in K-12 education; and 34 WHEREAS, Pedro's efforts to bake a cake for Summer illustrate the positive 35 connection between culinary skills to lifelong relationships; and 36 WHEREAS, Kip's relationship with LaFawnduh is a tribute to e-commerce and 37 Idaho's technology-driven industry; and 38 WHEREAS, Kip and LaFawnduh's wedding shows Idaho's commitment to healthy 39 marriages; and 40 WHEREAS, the prevalence of cooked steak as a primary food group pays trib- 41 ute to Idaho's beef industry; and 42 WHEREAS, Napoleon's tetherball dexterity emphasizes the importance of 43 physical education in Idaho public schools; and 44 WHEREAS, Tina the llama, the chickens with large talons, the 4-H milk 2 1 cows, and the Honeymoon Stallion showcase Idaho's animal husbandry; and 2 WHEREAS, any members of the House of Representatives or the Senate of the 3 Legislature of the State of Idaho who choose to vote "Nay" on this concurrent 4 resolution are "FREAKIN' IDIOTS!" and run the risk of having the "Worst Day of 5 Their Lives!"
Update: I fixed the link to the bill.
