Procreation Through Coercion

"Under the initiative, marriage would be limited to men and women who are able to have children. Couples would be required to prove they can have children in order to get a marriage license, and if they did not have children within three years, their marriage would be subject to annulment."
Such a delightful idea, this Initiative 957. (link via Drudge)

I am sure the proponents of this initiative are using results from the solid research performed by the great social scientist and observer Bobby D., (Darin, not Dylan) who, in 1961, had anticipated this situation and wrote these powerful, rousing words:
When you see a gentleman bee,
'Round the lady bee buzzing,
Just count to ten, then count again,
There's sure to be an even dozen.

Multiplication, that's the name of the game,
And each generation, they play the same.
The way I see it, you can't legislate the fuck out of marriage and you certainly can't legislate the fuck into marriage.
