People lose their damn minds if...

Like Edinburgh City Council, they have way too much time on their hands:
"WHEN Mel Smith abandoned his plans to light up a cigar on stage, he thought he was finally complying with Scottish smoking regulations.

But the comedian is now facing a new investigation by council officials amid allegations that yesterday's photocall - when he posed leaning out of his dressing room window, puffing on a cigar - was against the rules."
He's facing "allegations" that he still contravened the smoking ban because while the part of him that actually emits the smoke wasn't inside the goddam building, the other half of him was indeed in an "enclosed public space".

Edinburgh City Council deems this worthy of an "investigation".

It may be just nostalgia on my part but I'm sure I can remember a time when we were less stupid as a nation.
