We've got some interesting animal laws, Massachusetts!
• No gorilla is allowed in the back seat of any car. Well, who would try to do that? Everyone knows that the front seat is more comfortable for larger folks.
• Dogs are strictly forbidden from riding in ambulances. The sirens likely bother their ears.
• Fowl, particularly roosters, are prohibited from going into bakeries. Guess if your rooster is craving a donut, he has to wait outside while you order.
• Hunting on Sundays is prohibited. At least the animals have a day of rest.
• In Boston, anyone may let their sheep and cows graze in the public gardens/commons at any time except Sundays. I see how it works. It seems peaceful to let them all graze as they wish, but only on hunting days. Hmmm. Very suspicious.
• In Boston, no one may cross the Boston Common without carrying a shotgun in case of bears. Perhaps the bears are attracted by all the roosters waiting for pastries.
• In Boston, it is illegal for any citizen to own more than three dogs. Well, that's pretty common around the country, I think, but I'm guessing at least 50% of our readers are breakin' the law!
• In Marlborough, it is illegal for any citizen to own more than two dogs. Whoa, now. Let's not get too crazy.
• In Hopkinton, horses and cows are allowed on the common, but dogs are prohibited. I wonder if the horses and cows have to be on leashes. And I wonder if they make XL poop bags for such a thing.
• In Newton, all families must be given a hog from the town's mayor. I'm so moving there. I just have to remember which days my hog can graze, and which days he's in danger of being shot. Sigh.
