House panel OKs bill criminalizing mimicry.
A bill that seeks to criminalize mimicking or imitating a person's way of speaking particularly his peculiar accent or diction in an insulting and degrading manner has been approved by a committee at the House of Representatives.
To be fair, the rest of the bill makes sense, criminalizing religious discrimination in hiring practices among other things. It's just this "mimicry" thing that makes it all loopy. Does this mean we can't have another Alyssa Alano ("Keys Me") because we can't laugh at her stupid accent anymore? Or that we all need to keep a straight face when Sergio Apostol says "Madam Wetness" on air again?
