Want a Pac-Man Hat? Not in Ohio, Pal.

Pac-Man HatOn the surface this Pac-Man hat is a little odd. I mean it might look cute on a little kid in an ironic sort of way, right? Then you read the product description and realize it’s for adults. Yikes. Further reading reveals it’s imported from Japan. Ah, now it makes sense.

But wait. Why can’t you ship it to Massachusetts, Ohio, or Pennsylvania? Are there statutes on the books there that outlaw the transfer of Pac-Man hats across state lines? Are those states cracking down on gangs that use Pac-Man hats to signal their allegiances? Or are they just pro-ghost states? I’m confused.
