Three years after a dermatologist staged an ultimately futile “tanning intervention” with the cast of MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” pasty white Gov. Chris Christie has signed a law barring minors under 17 from using tanning beds. The legislation also bans children under 14 from getting a spray tan, according to the Associated Press. Is Christie taking a necessary step to keep kids healthy, or is he playing catch-up with New York Gov. Cuomo, who signed similar legislation last year?

A quick scan of Twitter shows most aren’t in favor.

How soon until we see “Keep New Jersey Orange” bumper stickers?
