Three years after a dermatologist staged an ultimately futile “tanning intervention” with the cast of MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” pasty white Gov. Chris Christie has signed a law barring minors under 17 from using tanning beds. The legislation also bans children under 14 from getting a spray tan, according to the Associated Press. Is Christie taking a necessary step to keep kids healthy, or is he playing catch-up with New York Gov. Cuomo, who signed similar legislation last year?

Good thing Jersey Shore dregs 15 mins are up, or we’d see mass suicides.

Wow, can’t believe Gov. Chris Christie (R-#NJ) signed that tanning bill. Why can’t people in NJ be allowed to make their own decisions?

I understand where Christie is coming from with the tanning how it’s bad & stuff, but that’s not our priority right now.. WHAT ABOUT TAXES?
