This Would Be Fun To Watch

MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service say that nudists are scaring off rare birds on Passage Key.
The Passage Key was established to protect native birds and serve as a breeding ground for them, but recently has been home to sandbars and is a popular destination for nudists.
“It is a federal crime to walk on the island,” a Fish and Wildlife Service spokesperson told WFLA-TV. “Nudists are allowed to wade in the water off-shore, but are prohibited by law from being on the island.”

If I were a nudist that scared off birds, I think I'd change hobbies.

As an aside:

It's a FEDERAL CRIME to walk on the island.

But if you're wading in a inch of water, you are good to go.(maybe. See -2) below).

The stupidity of bureaucrats is often beyond measure.

Your homework for the weekend:

-1) Define off-shore.

-2) Determine how much water is required by the federal government for you to be legally "wading".

-3) Figure out what is meant mean by the phrase "home to sandbars". What kind of home does a sandbar require?

Or, just shake your head and walk away.
