Karen Brewer committed a misdemeanor in Chicago!!

a little OT... but my friend and i were discussing dumb laws, and she stated that in Chicago it's against the law to fly a kite.
Someone didn't do their research when they had Karen Lisa and Andrew go kite flying in Karen's Big Move.


Here are some from the great state of Connecticut..did the BSC break any laws?

Pedestrians crossing the highway at night are prohibited from wearing tail lights. (cause you know you want them to be hit by a car and everything)

You can be stopped by the police for biking over 65 miles per hour.
In order for a pickle to officially be considered a pickle, it must bounce

.It is illegal to dispose of used razor blades. (did Kristy use a disposable razor in SS# 7? )

You cannot buy any alcohol after 9pm or on Sundays after noon on Sunday.
It is illegal to discharge a firearm from a public highway.

Silly string is banned (southington)

No one may use a white cane, unless they are blind.

Edited to add:
Also somewhere in CT (I forget where and too tired right now to look it up) it's illegal to have any kind of advertising on balloons.
For the BSC's sake, we'll just pretend that it's also illegal in Stoneybrook and have the Baby-Sitters Agency arrested.
All in favor?

Those laws are hilarious! However, when I lived in Kansas it was illegal to sell alcohol on Sundays, so I guess it's a common law in some states. I don't know why. Could it be a religious thing? Or maybe employers are afraid their employees will come in hungover on Mondays. :P

The pickle one is brilliant.

I love the pickle one, too.

A co-worker told me today that it was illegal to buy spray paint in Chicago. I have no idea where she read this, or why. I didn't ask.
