You Have No Right to Rock…

The US Dep’t of Justice does not want you to rock…or at least not unless the wood furnishing your instruments was finished by the proper workers, in this case Indian workers.

Apparently, lacking any bigger fish to fry, the Dep’t of Justice along with the National Institute of EconoLOLs has raided two Gibson guitar factories, seizing expensive supplies of the wood that is used to craft their famous axes.  Citing the Lacey Act, which no one has ever read all the way through while remaining conscious, they nabbed Gibson redhanded in the gruesom act of…violating an amendment to the act which requires certain wood to be finshed by a certain group of people.  Article here.

Estimated cost to Gibson: $2-$3 million

Estimated benefit to society: Free econoLOLS
