THERE ARE SOME INCREDIBLY WEIRD laws out there that, for whatever reason, never got taken off the books. In Connecticut, for example, a pickle can’t legally be called a pickle unless it bounces. There has to be a story behind that rule becoming an actual law, but the cause is often lost to history, while the strange law remains.

The good people at Olivet Nazarene University went through the laws in every state, and came up with 50 of the weirdest laws that are still on the books in each.
