Arrow Dumb and crazy laws.

I found this in a search for humor, and thought some of them were funny.

These are actual laws in CT, that are still active, but probably not enforced.

Connecticut
• A local ordinance in Atwoodville, Connecticut prohibits people from playing Scrabble while waiting for a politician to speak.
• A pickle is not officially a pickle unless it bounces
• Balloons with advertising on them are illegal in Hartford, Conn.
• Bloomfield, Conn: It's against the law to eat in your car.
• Cattle branding in the United States did not originate in the West. It began in Connecticut in the mid-nineteenth century, when farmers were required by law to mark all their pigs.
• Devon: It is unlawful to walk backwards after sunset.
• Druggists in Connecticut must pay $400.00 each year for a license in order to use alcohol in compounding prescriptions.
• Guilford: Only white Christmas lights are allowed for display.
• Hartford: You aren't allowed to cross a street while walking on your hands
• In colonial times, Hartford, Conn., had an ordinance that allowed any resident to rent the town chain for 2 pence.
• In Connecticut any dogs with tattoos must be reported to the police.
• In Connecticut it is illegal to pirouette while crossing the street
• In Devon, Connecticut, it is unlawful to walk backwards after sunset.
• In Hartford, Conn., it's illegal to plant a tree in the street.

• It is illegal to dispose of used razor blades.
• It's illegal to clam at night in Connecticut.
• New Britain: It is illegal for fire trucks to exceed 25mph, even when going to a fire.
• No one may use a white cane, unless they are blind.
• Southington: Silly string is banned.
• Strangers in Simsbury, Conn., were required, under an ordinance enacted in 1701 and only recently repealed, to leave town within a month unless they had at least 20 shillings to their names.
• The marriage of imbeciles and feeble-minded persons is prohibited.
• This state still retains an old law forbidding any kind of "private sexual behavior between consenting adults."

Re: Dumb and crazy laws.

This one really got me. It say colony though, so it must be way old.

• Under the Code of 1650 in the New Haven Colony (in what is now Connecticut), a 16-year-old boy could be put to (death) if he "cursed, struck or disobeyed" his parents or was "stubborn or rebellious."
