This would be funny if it wasn't so damn sad...

In case you haven't been keeping up on world events, knives are now illegal in Great Britian.
According to this article in The Sun, this includes Klingon Bathlets...

It's worth a visit just to see the picture of a British cop holding a Bathlet and trying to look serious.

As far as I can tell, this idiotic law will serve only three functions.

1. Pissing off British Trekkers
2. Making millions of Law Abiding British subjects felons for having a butchers knife
3. Providing a safer working environment for violent criminals.

Take a look at the third picture (after the uncredited clip from a Paramount film).
The collection of now illegal blades includes a standard kitchen cleaver and a hatchet.
If you are semi-serious about Chinese cooking or an avid camper in England, odds are you are now a felon.
