The Absurdity of Life in Connecticut....

One of Connecticut's most erudite residents had this to say....

"Laws control the lesser man... Right conduct controls the greater one."

Literally for centuries, Connecticut has been home to some of the greatest intellectual and political minds in American history. Their collective genius, apparently, was not utilized to its fullest. Here are a few good old fashioned Connecticut Blue Laws still on the books. I shit you not.

In order for a pickle to officially be considered a pickle, it must bounce.
In Devon - It is unlawful to walk backwards after sunset.
In Guilford - Only white Christmas lights are allowed for display.
In Hartford - You aren't allowed to cross a street while walking on your hands.
In Hartford - It is illegal for a man to kiss his wife on Sunday.
In New Britian - It is illegal for fire trucks to exceed 25mph, even when going to a fire.
In Southington - Silly string is banned.
In Waterbury - It is illegal for any beautician to hum, whistle, or sing while working on a customer.
