BARKING BAN

It's been a while since we've had a New Jersey installment on the Cutting Room Floor.

But the city of Clifton, New Jersey made the cut this week.

The city council has introduced an ordinance setting a limit on how long dogs can bark.

Noisy canines will be defined as those that bark for more than 30 minutes on two consecutive days.

The new ordinance was necessary because the current "nuisance and noise" laws were difficult to enforce.

Fines for the new ordinance could start at 250-dollars.

And if the story couldn't get any better, the health officer's name in Clifton... John Biegel.

No word if this ordinance will apply to our rabid squirrel.

NYC BEAVER SIGHTING

Do you know what animal graces New York City's official seal?

It's the beaver, although a beaver hasn't been seen in New York in about 200 years until this week.

Biologists videotaped a beaver swimming up the Bronx River.

Its twig-and-mud lodge was spotted earlier on the river bank.

Beavers gnawed out a prominent place in the city's early days.

But amid heavy trapping, beavers disappeared from the city in the early 1800s.

Biologists have nicknamed the Bronx Beaver, "Jose," as a tribute to U.S. Representative Jose Serrano's work to revive the river.

GAG CARD

Where could you find President Bush, Yankees Shortstop Derek Jeter and Yankee legend Mickey Mantle all in the same place?

Apparently at a Yankees game last year.

At least that's what appeared in a recent Topps baseball card.

A spokesman for Topps said, "Somewhere in between the final proofing and its printing, someone at our company - and we won't name names - thought it would be funny to put in Bush and Mantle."

The president's image is superimposed on the picture, while whoever played the trick took some time blending Mantle into the background.

The gag was discovered during proofing of the card, but it was already in the set.

CUP STACKERS

And we found this bit of video quite intriguing.

Look how fast these kid cup stackers are going.

And, this is only qualifying for the World Championships.

The record? Seven-point-41 seconds by a 13-year-old German boy.

Amazing!!
