ARE YOU JOKING?

  “I don’t think the national anthem is something we ought
 to be joking around with,” said Indiana state Sen. Vaneta Becker,
 explaining her proposed law to regulate the singing of “The Star-
 Spangled Banner” — the national anthem. Under the bill, the state
 education department would create “performance standards,” and anyone
 singing the anthem for school events would have to agree to comply —
 and face a $25 fine if the performance broke the rules. Becker said she
 was prompted by a constituent who was upset about altered lyrics that
 had been used in a school program, but says she had also heard the song
 parodied on TV.

A THOUGHT: In some public schools, just
 singing “the land of the free and the home of the brave” is parody
 enough.

About Chase Morgan
Chase Morgan is just your average, ordinary All-American writer. Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
