Afraid that the chilluns of the Bubble Wrap Generation might be exposed to icky stuff, Congress dashed off a quick law between their three martini lunch and their after work toddy. It was a simple law, stating that any clothes or toys sold for children under the age of twelve had to be tested for lead and other various toxins. Then, without ever stopping to wonder how they managed to survive a childhood where you could buy whole toys made of lead, they patted themselves on the back and went off to wreck another sector of the economy.
Meanwhile, thrift stores are stuck wondering how in the hell they're supposed to get their secondhand clothing tested, and Goodwill may have to get out of the tyke wrapper market altogether.
Good job, Congress! I'm sure your further monkeywrenching in the financial industry will show a similar deft touch and careful forethought.
UPDATE: Fight tha power!
