We hold that Restful Sleep be self evident

29-03-2004, 12:11
Barring unforseen events of insomnia or good television programming, we hold that Restful Sleep is a universally accepted freedom to all.

Article 1: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Article 2: (toss and turn)

Article 3: One sheep, two sheep, three sheep...
article 3b: If one has an aversion of sheep, they may substitute cows, though the bell tends to keep people awake when they land on the other side of the fense.

Article 4: Pillow hugging is an allowable form of expression during periods of slumber, and should not be held against any person.
article 4b: Unless they have someone to hug in the pillows stead, a person should be free to do so, unless the person states that they do not wished to be coddled during sleep.

Article 5: Snoring is an allowed function of sleep, because it is a natural bodily occurance during most people rest periods, and is usually an unconscious and uncontrollable urge of the body.

Article 6: That anything said during sleep shall not be held against a person in a court of law.

Article 7: That everyone has the right to a comfortable soft bed with pillows.

Article 8: Any loud disturbances for the express purpose of waking any person is not welcome, unless the sleeper had previously stated they wished to be waked at a certain time.

Article 9: Jokes, goofs, or gags are expressly not welcome to a person in a slumberish state.

Article 10: Catnapping would follow under these articles.

We suggest an amendment explicitly condemning those who seek to disturb Sunday night slumbers by repeatedly banging on the front door and pressing the buzzer for a first floor flat when they wish to stalk the occupants of the ground floor flat. For two hours. Bastards.

The right to nod off during voting meetings/lectures/speeches should also be enshrined. We are worried about the catnapping though...those nations who are cat-lovers may be a bit bothered at the prospect of their furry little (all be it bird murdering) feline darlings vanishing from the street.....

=^o.o^= Bird murdering is such a politically incorrect term. We prefer to call it terminating the life functions of our avian friends with extreme prejiduce, but not before toying around with them in a good mannered nature.

The term catnapping was referring to shorter sleep periods in order to regain energy.
