Thursday'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 planning to add a new service at my spa where people bathe with live eels. It is popular in China now -- the eels painlessly eat dead skin off the customer's body. Are there any special risks here that I should perhaps obtain insurance for?

Answer: Yes. If you can find a company that will insure against the risk that one of these eels will enter your customer's penis and wriggle its way up his urethra and into his bladder requiring surgery, that may be worth the investment.

2) Question
: I teach kindergarten. We asked the kids to bring in something for show-and-tell that was an "important family item," and one child brought in his mom's crack pipe and several baggies of crack rocks. This was definitely not covered in my kindergarten teacher training! What am I supposed to do here?

Answer: Your school will want to alert the authorities, as the mother may face charges for possession of a controlled substance and child endangerment. (, Kindergartner brings Mom's crack pipe, drugs to show and tell, police say)

3) Question: I am currently rocking the natural "Afro" hairstyle and I'm about to travel by plane. Should I allot some time before my flight for a search of my hair by the TSA?

Answer: You should consider that, as the TSA says "additional screening may be required for clothing, headwear or hair where prohibited items could be hidden" and sometimes they will stop people with Afros and checked their hair for explosives.
