Insanity: Cambridge Issues Parking Tickets With Yoga Illustrations

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Parking tickets messing with your inner tranquility? Try yoga!

That`s the latest New Age answer to modern aggravations from the city of Cambridge, where violation notices are now helpfully illustrated with a series of calming yoga poses.

But harried motorists are hardly chanting `om.`"

If I get a parking ticket, twisting my body in an awkward yoga position isn`t going to clam my nerves, but twisting the cop like a pretzel would do wonders for my spirit.

This kind of nonsense might work in Berkeley, CA, and Cambridge, but it ain`t gonna fly anywhere else. If a cop gives a homeboy from the hood a parking ticket with illustrations of yoga poses, that cop is going to end up eating that parking ticket.

If I get a parking ticket with yoga illustrations, I would use it to make a giant joint, Now that would chill me out!
