Alt: There were actually some good reasons for those laws, but IMO they now do more harm than good. Which begs the question: If there's a ballot measure to strike them down, how can I resist the urge to take a picture of my "yes" vote?

That makes it 1/4 as funny, as everyone knows humour is a per-pixel attribute of comics.
