Protected Classiness

President Obama

has signed a bill
that declares the bison
to be the country's national mammal.

Though symbolic
the act is nonetheless
an important reminder

to protect the species.

Meanwhile North Carolina Governor
Pat McCrory

has declared the bathroom gender attendant

(frequently a concerned man
entering a women's restroom

to ensure
that there are no men in there)

to be the state's
next protected treasure.
