The one about Nevada reminds me of something that happened in 1980. I was riding a bus from Eugene, OR, to Washington, DC. The route from San Francisco converged at Salt Lake City. We noticed that a lot of passengers joining our bunch headed east looked pretty disheveled. They told us that, in the middle of the night, someone had gone back to the toilet on the bus and lit up a joint. When the scent wafted down to the front of the bus, the driver locked up the brakes from whatever stratospheric speed he'd been pushing. Passengers and luggage hurtled toward the front of the bus as the behemoth slammed to a stop.

"We're not in California anymore!! You can get 20 years for that shit in Nevada!" he screamed at them.

Every time the bus crossed a state line, the driver had to announce whether smoking anything on board was legal or not. Jurisdiction matters.

It's nice to see a carried-off-by-an-eagle cartoon that doesn't use Addams's "Drop the car keys!" punchline. And the lady cutting her dress out of the curtains? The movie "Enchanted" recycled it.
