A bill that would let Florida schoolchildren bite Pop-Tarts into the shape of guns has cleared the state House of Representatives and is making its way through the Senate.
The so-called "Pop-Tart bill," formally known as HB 7029, would keep schoolchildren from being penalized for simulating firearms with their fingers, a piece of paper or a pastry, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
A pastry? Yes, the Sentinel said, the legislation specifically references pastries and other foods.

The sad part is apparently we DO need laws like this, to help rein in the out of control - lack of commons sense - mind set that punishes kids for being kids...

For the same reason we have so many stupid warning labels on products. There is a precedent with too many people unable to use common sense.

I say we just take all those labels off and let nature weed out the stupid people.

Sometimes it does seem like a waste of time to try and save some people from themselves. If they would only leave others out of it by not suing or causing harm with collateral damage.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

That would be kind of funny but to answer your question:

No, a bill isn't a fine. Maybe this will help you understand. :-)
