In the May 2012 issue of SOCO Magazine, they have a couple of odd laws listed. First, 'it is illegal to jump off a building in NY, and if you do, the penalty is death.' Seriously. Next, in Scituate, RI, it is against the law for drivers to have a beer in their car, even if the beer is in sealed bottles. The law in MA forbidding tomatoes in clam chowder is there as well. Of all the whacky laws in MA that one makes the most sense to me!
