Silly Flori-Duh---Florida may overturn ban on dyeing bunnies, chicks and other critters

Picture your bunnies neon green and your baby chicks a vivid purple.

Floridians will be able to get them in any color come July, unless Gov. Rick Scott vetoes a bill that would repeal a 45-year statewide ban on the dyeing of chicks, bunnies and other animals.

Scott has until Saturday the day before Easter to sign or veto the bill that has enraged animal activists locally and around the country.

What will he do? His office won't say.

"It's a shame," said Sharron Carmichael, who handles cruelty investigations for the Humane Society of Broward County. "It's archaic. It makes Florida look that much sillier."

2. All because some jackass wants to dye show dogs.

That, in itself, is ridiculous. WTF?
