It will soon be illegal to be emo in Russia

I know this story seems too funny to be true, but it's no joke. The Guardian (an English newspaper) writes that Russian officials think that being emo is "a threat to national security and anti-emo legislation is being drawn up to outlaw kids sporting black hair with fringes that cover half the face."

"Anti-emo legislation??" 


If life is so fair, then why do roses have thorns? Russia hopes to have passed the bill by the end of the year.
