Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I'm going to buy some groceries today using my employee discount at Whole Foods. By the way, my blood pressure is 110/70, my total cholesterol is 144 and my body mass index is 31.

Answer: That BMI is a deal-breaker, so you are stuck with a 20 percent discount. But if you can drop a few pounds and get that BMI down to 23, you're entitled to a 30 percent discount. (Jezebel, Weigh Less, Pay Less: Whole Foods Offers Discount Based On BMI) (via Consumerist)

Powerpuff 2) Question: Hypothetically speaking, of course, could my friend be arrested for possession of pornographic cartoon images of Marge Simpson and the Powerpuff Girls?

Answer: Is your "friend" in Australia? Then yes. (Brisbane Times, The Simpsons porn lands man on sex offender list)

3) Question: My buddies and I spend most of our free time playing Dungeons & Dragons. Don't judge. But can you please clarify whether this means we are technically gang members? That would be cool.

Answer: According to Waupun prison in Wisconsin and the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, you are a straight up G. (City Pages, D&D banned at Wis. prison because it promotes gang activity)
