I'm Sorry Officer I Can't Afford A Camera

(MUSICMAN PRESS) There's a new bill on the table for Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The new bill dubbed, "The Crappy Pic Bill," is designed to prevent the production any more non-professional photograph of the Statue of Liberty.

The bill states, "Anyone on Ellis Island in possession of a camera must present it to a Statue of Liberty Tourist Assistant. If the camera is a digital devise it will be returned to the owner, If it is not the camera must be seized, destroyed and returned to the owner along with a three hundred dollar fine."

"The bill will hopefully stop the production of bad photos of our treasured landmarks. Bad pictures give our city a bad name! A bad name I will not stand for!" said New York City Congressman Thristan Howl IX.

It seems unlikely that this bill will be approved. Many residents are against it.

"It is simply unethical, and poisonous to the city. I for one, will take up my belongings and settle elsewhere, if this blasted thing gets through. My father told me to be a politician. I said 'NO!' And this is the reason why. Stupidity!" announced New York University Marketing professor William Wrinkeler.
