There’s a local ordinance,
still on the books back in Jersey,
makes it illegal to throw a tainted pickle across the street in Trenton.
‘nother one makes it unlawful to allow a pigeon to fly over the streets in Bayonne unless it’s licensed.
Still good law.
First went on the books back in the late 1700s.
Nobody’s thought to review it, rethink it, rework it, reword it, much less repeal it.
Late 1700s and still there in cut-and-dried black and white.
Kind of like the Second Command-
“Amendment”. Second Amendment.
Guess there must be a whole bunch of fat cats in town that still get their jollies throwing fuckin’ pickles across the street.
Probably fancy themselves a militia.
“The pigeons are coming! The pigeons are coming!
“Don’t throw the pickles till you see the whites of their eyes!”
