You guys might want to move that somewhere else

From the what the fuck is that doing there department: among the rather mundane definitions one finds in Title 1 of the US federal code (e.g. gender terms, definitions of vehicles, etc.) one also find this gem:

Wherever, in the statutes of the United States or in the rulings, regulations, or interpretations of various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States there appears or may appear the term “products of American fisheries” said term shall not include fresh or frozen fish fillets, fresh or frozen fish steaks, or fresh or frozen slices of fish substantially free of bone (including any of the foregoing divided into sections), produced in a foreign country or its territorial waters, in whole or in part with the use of the labor of persons who are not residents of the United States.

I have no idea why anyone thought Title 1 was the right place to put this. Is defining products of American fisheries so basic to the US Federal code that it’s gotta go to the very front of the line? Fucked if I know.
