Not everyone is happy about the whole iPodoblivion anti-Zombie regulation introduced by a state legislator in New York, which proposes to ban crossing the street while using an iPod. Okay, to be fair, pretty much absolutely everyone who has heard about this proposed legislation thinks it's well meaning idiocy. This morning, TUAW reader Charlie Moran pointed us to this video from HBO/AOL's comedy site. (Warning: explicit language.) I also found this bunch of letters from today's New York Post, offering various reader reactions to the proposal.

Bottom line? When listening to an iPod, look both ways.

Update: just fixed the video link again.
