Behind the 8 Ball

Headline: Uganda police ban playing pool in the daytime

KAMPALA (Reuters) - Ugandan police have banned people from playing pool during the daytime because it encourages crime, local media said Wednesday.

The report continued to say that the bar owners like pool tables because of the money they generate and the fact that they require no electricity. The latter is a big plus considering the area has suffered many power cuts for months.

So, here's my concern. They're banning daytime pool games, right, but at night the power is out. What the hell? Do pool balls glow-in-the-dark in Uganda?

If so, that would be fantastic! Even more fun than disco lights/bowling nights - which, if I'm not mistaken, was also an 80s movie starring Michael J. Fox.

Playing pool in the daytime allows all the Ugandan criminal minds to gather and conspire all their dastardly plans.

Way to go Ugandan police!
