Crazy U.S. Laws That Still Stand Today

If it Ain’t Bouncing, it Ain’t a Pickle


One of the funnier ones featured on this list. In the state of Conneticut, for a pickle to truly be considered a legitimate pickle, it must be able to bounce. If the pickle doesn’t bounce, it is not a pickle. The origins of this date back to the 1800s, when a pair of tradesmen were convicted of selling cucumbers disguised as pickles and the truth was only discovered when their cucumbers would not bounce. Embarrassing.
