Dallas Mavericks forward Caron Butler, who apparently has an oral fixation of some sort, has been chewing straws during NBA games for years. Now that he plays on a team people give a damn about, the NBA has made it into a safety issue, declaring "It's against the rules".
Next on the agenda for the NBA:
- Not allowing players to swim for an hour after eating
- Banning running with scissors
- Banning eye-crossing because "they'll stay that way permanently"
- Forcing to players to wear coats in the cold so they don't catch pneumonia
