Florida Lawmaker Files Bill to Repeal State Ban on Dwarf Tossing in Bars


Let me guess, the state of Florida is flourishing with jobs, no crime and every resident has a pony, right? Really, no? Then why would a lawmaker be wasting his precious time with idiotic b.s.? In his defense, he does look like he played football one season too many.h/t Gawker.

A Florida lawmaker has filed a bill that would repeal a state law prohibiting dwarf tossing in bars.

Rep. Ritch Workman of Melbourne filed House Bill 4063 on Monday.

"To me it's an archaic kind of Big Brother law that says, 'We don't like that activity,'"  Workman told the Florida Current. "Well, there is nothing immoral or illegal about that activity. All we really did by passing that law was take away some employment from some little people."

The cringe-inducing activity was outlawed in 1989, when national controversy over dwarf tossing prompted the Legislature to ban it in bars for safety reasons, the Current reports.

House Bill 4063 would repeal Florida Statute 561.665, which bans establishments who sell alcohol from activities "involving exploitation endangering the health, safety, and welfare of any person with dwarfism."
