Here's our first birthday present to the Friends of Unfair Park: two passes to the Dallas Museum of Art and a $50 gift certificate for St. Pete's Dancing Marlin (see, we love Deep Ellum, so there). All you have to do is be the first to complete the following, which comes from the City Code of Dallas, Texas 1941 -- specifically, the very confusing section labeled "unlawful sexual intercourse."
Art. 89-7. (1682) Unlawful sexual intercourse. -- It shall be unlawful for a male person over the age of fourteen years old to have sexual intercourse with a female person eighteen years of age or over, other than his lawful wife, within the corporate limits of the city of Dallas. It shall also be unlawful for a female person eighteen years of age or over to have sexual intercourse with a male person over the age of fourteen years, other than her lawful husband, within the corporate limits of the city of Dallas. Any person violating any provision of this article shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and fined not less than twenty-five dollars nor more than ___________.
First one to e-mail me with the correct dollar amount gets the present. Or first one to explain the ordinance to me might also get the prize. Because, I dunno, it sounds kinda...wrong. --Robert Wilonsky
Update: We have a winner! It took a mere five minutes for Andrew Rye to come up with the correct answer: $200. More gifts to come in just a few. Incidentally, we're starting to think scavenger hunt...
