Unbelievable Massachusetts Funeral Law

imageEvery week my wife, kids, and I get together with 3 or 4 other families and have a gamenight. The families we get together with have kids so the kids spend their time destroying the host house while the adults play some sort of game. This week we played a game called Balderdash. Balderdash is a board game of bluffing and trivia, I could get into all the details but you wouldn’t want to read any further.

Basically a question is asked and you have to either come up with the real answer or make something up that fools everyone else into thinking it was the real answer…get it!! There was a question read this week that really caught my attention.

The question was “Massachusetts State law says that mourners at a funeral may not…”.

We were left to fill in the blank. The real answer and law sure shocked me and I am sure it will shock you too.

There were a lot of answers that were made up and no one even came close to guessing the right answer.

The real law reads: “Massachusetts State law says that mourners at a funeral may not eat more than 3 sandwiches.”

Yes, that is the actual law. I am not sure how this is enforced but it gave me a chuckle the other night and I wanted to pass that chuckle onto you…have a great Friday!!

Can anyone verify if this is really still a law, and if so how do they enforce it?
