As we travel across the country in our pursuit of dumb laws in every state, our next destination after Colorado is Connecticut. We have seen some really stupid and dumb jokes to which one would inadvertently confess saying, â€œMan, this oneâ€™s really weird and crazy!â€. Connecticut law books contain some more idiotic laws that could leave anyone listening to them with gasps of bewilderment. Letâ€™s see how lame can the lawmakers get!
1 – Hunt on a Public Highway and Youâ€™ll be Put in Prison
Bad news for those who were planning to hunt in the middle of a public highway! You better look out for some Godforsaken piece of land, some jungle or some desert if you want to hunt legally in Connecticut.
2 – Police Whistle is Banned
Kids! Beware! If you ever try to blow a police whistle or sound an alarm that appears similar to a police alarm, you could land in trouble! So, even if you impersonate a police man on Halloween, try not to get your hands on that whistle of his!
3 – No Town Records at the Local Bar
Town records are not to be kept in any room in which alcoholic liquor is sold. So, if you are a town clerk or a judge and you happen to stop by at the local bar for a drink or two, you better not have the town records in your possession! Else the law will move against you!
4 – No Booze after 9pm or After Noon on Sundays
This law has been repealed. Connecticut may now sell liquor on Sundays between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm.
5 – No More than Four Amusement Devices at an Arcade
Unlicensed ping-pong tables, pinball machines, or shuffleboard tables are not allowed in Connecticut. Some more fodder for the bureaucrats there!
6 – No Silly String, Kids!
In the mid 1990s, a group of children ran up to a police officer and sprayed him with silly string during the Apple Harvest Festival. To prevent such acts from happening again, the ban was passed on the sale of the product.
