Have you heard of this place? I think it’s called, “NoFunsville”, Wisconsin. If it isn’t, it should be.
I wish I was making this stuff up, but I’m not. There’s a city in Wisconsin that just banned throwing snowballs, placing them alongside arrows and rocks. It’s all in the interest of public safety, of course.
“No person shall throw or shoot any object, arrow, stone, snowball or other missile or projectile, by hand or by any other means, at any other person,” the municipal code in Wausau rules.
The ordinance, under the section for “weapons,” also says snowballs cannot be thrown “at, in or into any building, street, sidewalk, alley, highway, park, playground or other public places within the city.”
“It’s really in the interest of public safety,” Wausau Mayor Robert B. Mielke told WCCO of the ruling he actually introduced a few years ago. “A lot of it is just consideration and common sense. You don’t throw stuff at people, period.”
The local police station said they can’t remember ever being fined for throwing snowballs.
