Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blawgosphere.

Lactococcus 1) Question: I see "state birds" and "state flowers" around the country. Maryland even has a "state sport" of jousting, for crying out loud. Why don't any states have a state microbe?

Not so fast. Check out Assembly Bill 556 in Wisconsin. (Lowering the Bar: Bill Would Designate Bacterium as Wisconsin's Official State Microbe)

2) Question: I'm 7 months old. I can't talk, can't sit up by myself, and have no teeth. Is there any chance I can pass for a two-year-old somewhere?

Answer: Try Southwest Airlines, where admittedly "not all of [their] Employees are parents and some find it more difficult to determine if the child is more than or less than two years old."  ( Southwest: Here's $150, Forgive Us For Suspecting Your Baby Was 2)

3) Question: I'm an Italian art student visiting London. There are so many amazing tourist sites here, so glad I brought my camera! Do you have any advice on what I should check out?

Answer: No, other than to say you might want to keep that lens cap on. Sometimes when you film the "iconic" landmarks in London they toss you in prison for being a terrorist. (The Guardian: Italian student tells of arrest while filming for fun.)
