    “Tomorrow at noon, it””s on!”

  2. The One Guy says:

    I””m curious why “$1,000.00 Fine” and “Illegal” are in quotes.

  3. BZCoolness says:

    I can imagine a couple people standing around with wristwatches, while silly string is in the trunk of the car.

  4. strangeknight says:

    because it””s “Silly”

  5. the cat says:

    Halloween troubles?

    Also some “idiots” like to use quotation marks for emphasis.

  6. UO says:

    Aren’t you just DYING to spray the sign with silly string?

  7. duchess says:

    Don’t worry. It’s not actually illegal. That’s just what some people are saying. High school students should be required to take an entire year of WHAT QUOTATION MARKS FREAKING MEAN and then another year of the difference between a plural and a possessive. Of course, people with IQs over 80 will be able to test out of those.

    /punctuation rant

  8. Jessi says:

    It’s only “kind of” illegal. And note that the quotation marks on the right are backwards.

  9. Sonictoast says:

    it can be illegal if you make it illegal..
    as, if you get a lighter and some silly string, since the silly string contains compressed air, when you blow it over the fire of the lighter, it will cause a big flame to eprupt and most likely burn something. So its probably illegal for arsonic purposes.

    Silly String. It’s srs bsnss.

  11. MLD says:

    Cabbage Night is the night BEFORE halloween and not covered here, then. I’m more worried about that night, thanks

  12. Andrew Vandever says:

    They should do this in Pasadena for New Year’s.

  13. Mark says:

    I think that’s fair enough.

  14. James says:

    About the quotation marks, you must ask the people who made the sign. This must be controlled by the Ministry of Silly Strings.

  15. Dustin Kick says:

    Notice, this also belongs on the unnecessary quotation marks page.

  16. bubsAKAvermin says:

    Please “DO NOT” use quotation marks for emphasis.

    One more reason why I LOVE L.A.!!!

    wow, just wow.

    “The ordinance calls for a maximum $1000 fine and/or six months in jail for use, possession, sale or distribution of Silly String in Hollywood from 12:01 a.m. on October 31 to 12:00 p.m. on November 1.”

    Can you imagine what they’d do to you in jail when they find out you’re in there for possession of silly string?

  19. maddawg says:

    So you’re saying for 36 hrs I cannot use, posses, sell, or buy silly string. BUT for the other 8700 hrs of the year I can. That just makes no sense.

  20. nicole says:

    holly shit… i remember seeing that sight on the pored rout.

  21. Bill says:

    Which year are they prohibiting it?

  22. Nanashi says:

    No, no, I can understand that, actually. They wouldn’t want a ton of silly string vandalism on halloween night. It does make sense, really.

  23. imobsessed314 says:

    It’s “illegal”: Sort of illegal but not really.

  24. Sofie says:

    Think it’s illegal to do a silly walk?

  25. Druthulhu says:

    Blatantly unconstitutional, as it is a violation of the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution, by way of the 14th. Outlaw Silly String all year long? OK, if you must. Outlaw silly string specifically on a religious holiday? Violation of the Establishment Clause.

    Yes, I am totally serious!! *waits for flames*

    • DeadBob says:

      I looked up Silly String, and yes, that is an actual Hollywood, CA bylaw.

      And I also found that a town I used to live with bans the stuff, and actually treats it as a “weapon” just like firearms…
