French Mayor Bans Death

News is much more fun these days. C.J. wants to send pube robbers to hell, in Kandy they have a blow job test, and now in France..
The mayor of a village in south west France has banned residents from dying.

Village graveyard is full and Gerard Lalanne has threatened "severe" punishment for anyone who disobeys.[..]

In an ordinance posted in the council offices, Mayor Lalanne told the 260 residents that "all persons not having a plot in the cemetery and wishing to be buried in Sarpourenx are forbidden from dying in the parish".

It added: "Offenders will be severely punished." However, the nature of the punishment - apparently a fate worse than death - was not specified. [link]
Last year the Chinese banned reincarnation, the French are much smarter. Why even give that chance? duh!.

But no, seriously don't laugh, this is perfectly normal. They do this all the time. Whatever you don't like you just ban it. Don't like Gay people? ban them. Prostitution? banned. Smoking in public- banned. Alcohol for women, Porn, Abortion - All of it banned. Has that stopped any of this? No.. so what's so different here?

This is just the ultimate logical conclusion of government 'rationality', wonder why our fellows didn't think of this before. I mean it's so obvious..
