*Cop arrests pedophile and takes his child porn for evidence* “Johnson, look at this sick bastard. We got to put this in evidence” “I’m sorry Greg, I’m going to have to arrest you for having that child porn, hand it over” *From across the room, Richard sees the arrest* “Johnson! Hands up, you’re under arrest for that child porn! I’ll take it from here” *continues until every cop in the world has arrested each other*

I make jewelry. I have a FB page for selling jewelry. I have jewelry that has space themed titles i.e., Eclipse, etc. I have a ring with a red stone in it called the “Red Venus Ring” I got a notice from FB that said, “Your listing Red “Venus” Ring-Red Sunstone…may go against our rules on selling adult products and services.” Go figure.
