And More Dumb Laws

In keeping with the sentiment of my August 22 post, here are some more gems ... this time from Massachusetts!

State Laws:
At a wake, mourners may eat no more than three sandwiches.
Taxi drivers are prohibited from making love in the front seat of their taxi during their shifts.
No gorilla is allowed in the back seat of any car.
Tomatoes may not be used in the production of clam chowder.
Bullets may not be used as currency.

No one may cross the Boston Common without carrying a shotgun in case of bears.
It is illegal to eat peanuts in church.
Two people may not kiss in front of a church.

Hopkinton: Though horses and cows are allowed on the common, dogs are prohibited.

Longmeadow: It is illegal for two men to carry a bathtub across the town green.

Marlboro: One may not detonate a nuclear device in the city.

Newton: All families must be given a hog from the town's mayor.

North Andover: An ordinance prohibits the use of space guns.

tee hee ...
