THE POWER OF 3: Dumb Laws


Connecticut has a dumb law about pickles.

Pennsylvania: In PA, it is illegal to sleep on top of a refrigerator outdoors.

First off, it doesn’t really surprise me that someone in PA would end up sleeping on fridge. But the fact that people felt that they had to turn it into a law not to makes me wonder what happened in order for them to go this far.  It worries me that people in PA are this out of it to go outside with a fridge and sleep on it.

Connecticut: In order for a pickle to officially be considered a pickle, it must bounce.

I…I have nothing to say other than, why? Why would you go to a restaurant or store and drop a pickle to see if it is a pickle?  Although, I guess in this country, nothing would honestly surprise me. I’ve seen some pretty strange thing, like an old man in short shorts, that wasn’t pretty. I bet we have all seen some strange things. Oddly enough, someone dropping a pickle isn’t the weirdest thing I’ve heard of. You think that if it looks like a pickle, smells like a pickle, and tastes like a pickle, then it’s probably a pickle.

Illinois: The English language is not to be spoken.

Hahahaha, I got a good chuckle from this one. Isn’t English kind of a needed to have in America? I obviously know no one follows this law, and if they do, then that is a shame. We live in a country that has English as a primary language. I feel that everyone should be in jail. It’s not so much the fact that this is a law, but the fact that no one repealed it.
