the daily show comes to montgomery county

having been home sick since monday, i’ve been spending some quality time with my tivo. i just caught up on yesterday’s edition of the daily show, which featured a piece on the montgomery county mooning case.

montgomery county state’s attorney doug gansler was hilarious, especially when asked about whether “helicopters” are legal in the county. after it was explained to him what this meant (rotating your hips in such a manner that a certain part of the male anatomy spins like a helicopter), gansler reasoned that the legality of the helicopter depended on where it was conducted. i’m sure many montgomery county residents are relieved to hear that if you are by yourself in the shower, you are “probably fine” doing the helicopter.

    I’m SO relieved to know that helicopters are legal in the shower. Phew.

    Of course, BJs are still illegal in VA…

    I thought the Supremes ruled such that all the sodomy laws were unconstitutional somewhere around 98?

    Aha, no, 2003. Lawrence v Texas, though this website ,, indicates that VA continues to arrest and prosecute sporadically.
