Pillow fight!

Who says pillow fighting is illegal?

Well, it seems that Detroit city police do when it comes to corralling a massive organized pillow fight in a downtown park this past weekend. The battle was interrupted by the authorities on account that the participants did not have a permit to hold such an event. The fluffy weapons had to be confiscated from people, but they were allowed to keep their pillow cases.  


The issue was not necessarily the threat of downy soft violence. Instead, the police were more concerned with the fact that they would be left to clean up one hell of a mess after the fight was over. Overall, it’s virtually impossible to draw blood when you hit someone with a pillow. There is a 99.9% chance that you will break your pillow rather than someone else’s skin, thus spilling goose down and hypoallergenic stuffing all over creation.

It turns out that this event is a worldwide effort that has been circulating around online social networks. Many cities around the world have participated in huge pillow fights as a unique demonstration for peace. However, Detroit was the only city that failed to carry out the plan all because the police say they don’t have a permit to hit each other with pillows.

Oh, well. It was a good effort. Besides, there’s no rules against holding a pillow battle royal in your own home! Seriously, that would be awesome.
