"Napoleon Dynamite:" the concurrent resolution

I just think this is kinda cool: Idaho is in the process of honoring the 2004 indie-film-hit "Napoleon Dynamite" with a state resolution.

Lawmakers do goofy stuff like that all the time, but the guy who wrote this one was really on his game. Consider the ultimate "WHEREAS" clause:
WHEREAS, any members of the House of Representatives or the Senate of the Legislature of the State of Idaho who choose to vote "Nay" on this concurrent resolution are "FREAKIN' IDIOTS!" and run the risk of having the "Worst Day of
Their Lives!"

I didn't get this movie the first time I watched it, but once I watched it with our teenagers it made perfect sense.
