The Nanny State disapproves of the ochre on the living room ceiling.

Thanks to Mr Sullivan for alerting us to this absurd over-extension of the nanny state.

In Alabama it is illegal to recommend shades of paint without a license. In Nevada it is illegal to move any large piece of furniture for purposes of design without a license. In fact, hundreds of people have been prosecuted in Alabama and Nevada for practicing “interior design” without a license.

Say what? I hope no one from Maryland comes knocking on the door, demanding an explanation for the ungodly combination of woods in my ramshackle bedroom. I’ll be returning to jail if that happens.
