LANSING, MI—Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has ordered all citizens to barbecue indoors this Memorial Day.
The executive order restricts all Memorial Day barbecue celebrations to inside only.
"You're more than welcome to celebrate your freedoms with a barbecue as long as you don't go outside," she said, wagging her finger like a school teacher. "Naughty boys and girls hold barbecues outdoors where the big, scary coronavirus can get them. Good boys and girls barbecue inside where it is safe."
Anyone who disobeys the order will be put on time-out and sent to bed without any dessert. Those who continually disobey will be grounded and have their Nintendo privileges taken away.
At publishing time, sources had confirmed this restriction would likely be extended through Labor Day 2025.
