If you plan to attend March 2009's DIII hockey championship in Lake Placid be prepared to shut your mouth. Get a load of this ridiculous rule just passed in the Olympic village...

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) - Keep your hoots to yourself. At least in the Village of Lake Placid in eastern New York. The village board passed a new anti-noise ordinance that bans "hooting" on public streets after 9:30 p.m. Yelling, shouting, whistling, singing and offensive horn-honking now are also legal no-nos. First offenders can be fined as much as $250 and spend up to 15 days in jail. Repeat hooters face fines up to 750 bucks and 60 days in the slammer.
