(CNN) – Who says nothing gets done in a lame-duck session of Congress?
The House immediately passed its first resolution shortly after 2:30 p.m. ET Monday with resounding bipartisan support – though the measure in question had nothing to do with taxes, the economy, or job creation.
Instead, this resolution, introduced by Republican Ted Poe of Texas, prohibits the creation of "animal crush videos." As Poe described it on the House floor, such videos "depict small animals being slowly crushed to death by women using their bare feet or wearing high heels."
"Federal legislation is necessary to address the interstate sale and distribution of these videos, which is often beyond the reach of many states," said Poe, before the legislation easily passed.
The Senate passed a similar measure in September.
