Citizens Against Paper Napkins

The Nuthatch of Arkansas brings the following to our attention: an Oklahoma Legislator has actually introduced a bill to require barbecue restaurants to provide cloth napkins to diners. It's about time that the Oklahoma Legislature tackled this niggling itch of a problem that has festered far too long. Unscrupulous "bar-b-q" eateries began substituting paper napkins for the real thing in the 1970s and today it is a commonly held belief that cloth napkins at a barbecue are, shall we say, like a pinkie ring on a billy-bob.
