Bentley posted this story in his/her journal this morning, but I thought it worth sharing with the larger audience. Apparently, the Spring Hill (TN) library sponsors a fund-raising flea market each year. This year, things heated up when someone offered products from "Passions & Pleasures," a Tupperware-like business that offers home selling parties of adult, uh, novelties, such as vibrating rubber ducky sponges. Yesterday, the people who paid for and staffed the booth were looking at being fined for violating the city's ordinance governing sex-oriented businesses.
The city, however, decided to not pursue the case. Owner Katherine Williams had this to say in today's Tennessean
''Nothing we do is nasty, unless you have a nasty mind,'' she said, turning a knob on the yellow ducky's tail to make the sponge vibrate. ''My 3-year-old son loves to play with this duck in the bath. He puts it on his neck and on his head; there's nothing inappropriate about it.''
