D@MN! Next you know NYC will ban assault knives and assault automobile.

Black handled knives and black cars will be the first to go.

A list of options for knives and cars will be published and those can't be on future models.

Options like "sharp edges"?

The cruise ship banned carryon of any kind of knives or scissors. (I smuggled in a pair of kindergarten scissors for my quilting project!)

But then every night at dinner, they gave out steak knives...
