You Can't Believe This Missouri Law

Under a state statute written in 1895, it's against Missouri law to manufacture or sell "imitation butter." Now, Rep. Sara Lampe has introduced legislation to repeal this arcane law.
"As goofy as the laws sound, as silly as they sound today, the reality is they're laws. The reality is is someone said we want to enforce this law, they could," says Lampe.

I have a friend that is a former Springfield PD officer. He says it is still on the books that it is against the law in the city of Springfield to buy or consume buttermilk on Sunday.

What I can't believe is that Lampe would spend her time (which is the same as the tax payer's time) on such a frivolous effort. We send these people to Jefferson City to solve real and pressing problems, and this is what we get??
