Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I am a prostitute in Bonn, Germany. Someone who looks like a meter maid just walked up to me and demanded to see my "tax ticket" for today. This was not covered in the prostitute training. What is going on here?

Answer: Starting this week, Bonn prostitutes must purchase a tax ticket for €6 from a vending machine every day before they start their business. Prostitutes with no ticket will first be given a warning, followed by fines and possibly a ban. (The Local, Street prostitutes taxed via vending machine)

2) Question: My wife and I got into an argument. Now I see that she has changed her Facebook status from "married" to "widowed." Should I alert the authorities?


Answer: I think it is a bluff. You are still alive to be writing me this question, right? Man up and show her who is boss by changing your own Facebook status to "It's complicated" or something like that. Of course, I could be wrong, so maybe you should get 9-1-1 queued up on your cell phone. (FAILBlog, Dating: Be Very Afraid and Use the Buddy System)

3) Question: I don't want to go to grandpa's house any more! Every time we go he makes me and my grade-school age brothers walk 18 miles through the desert in triple-digit heat with no food or water. Is that even legal? Do we have to go?

Answer: Not legal! Tell mom! (The Associated Press, Grandpa charged with forcing Grand Canyon hikes)
