No wonder the Spire is crooked in Chesterfield. Someone must have whistled the tune from the hunchback of Notre Dam when passing by.

Do not turn the TV station to the Andy Griffith show, you may land in jail if someone hears the opening and closing of this 1/2 hour segment.

This is not a test.

You can get a court order to stop people from whistling and then they go to jail if they violate it? So whats next. If I find the bumper sticker on your car offensive can I get a court order so I don't have to look at it. How about a court order against a t- shirt I find offensive. The guy may not have been the greatest neighbor but if the worse thing he did was whistle offensive songs ,well I can live with that.
