I Don't Even Have A Joke Here

I lie, I have many, many jokes. But none are better than telling it straight:
Lucy’s Love Shop employee Wanda Gillespie said she was flabbergasted that South Carolina’s Legislature is considering outlawing sex toys. But banning the sale of sex toys is actually quite common in some Southern states.

The South Carolina bill, proposed by Republican Rep. Ralph Davenport, would make it a felony to sell devices used primarily for sexual stimulation and allow law enforcement to seize sex toys from raided businesses.
A FELONY. And lest ye think that this is just some ridiculous wingnuttery, Texas, Mississippi and Alabama have already gone this rout. (Query, why is it always Texas, Mississippi and Alabama?)

Now, normally, this is the kind of story which would vie for AHW, but given the subject matter, I'm not sure that would be in good taste. Read the whole thing for some Grade A quality snark.
