MEXICO CITY - The Republic of Mexico has voted 51 to 49 to ban the use of those humongous oversized hats known as sombreros.
A government spokesperson who requested anonymity stated that it is about time that the silly practice of grown men and women wearing those extremely gigantic sombreros be outlawed.
Falsetto Gratis went on to say that the final straw came when a dentist from Oaxaca received quite a cut as he stood in an elevator and a sombrero wearing individual entered the elevator.
Mr. Gratis was knocked down and he hit his head on a pair of maracas that someone had accidentally dropped on the elevator floor.
While the injured individual was being tended to witnesses said that the sombrero wearer quickly exited the building and ran down the street. Security guards later found the sombrero which had been stashed in a dumpster, two blocks from the building.
A Mexico City police spokesman Alejandro Matavacas took the sombrero into custody and tagged it as exhibit S-1. He said that they hope to gather DNA from three hairs that they were able to retrieve.
Matavacas said that many companies who are headquartered in high rise buildings have become quite upset at the fact that regular-sized elevators can hold up to 12 people, but only two if they are sombrero wearing hombres (men) or mujeres (women).
It is being reported that the sombrero industry is extremely upset and literally fit to be tied. They plan on filing a class action lawsuit to reverse the decision.
A government spokesperson Salma Palma stated that it's time that the Mexican sombrero wearers switch over to smaller cowboys hats, or baseball caps, or even the very popular Jon Gosselin Beanie.
