Hooting Yard: Galvanic Batteries, Heads of Swans

If the bandage is white, as is common, and the swan is white, as is common, the casual observer may not even notice that the embedding has taken place. That may or may not be important, depending upon the legal regulations obtaining in the jurisdiction.

In any case, it is better to check the legal position beforehand.
