A feverish suggestion
If you're in Connecticut and you covet a traditional fever thermometer with a column of mercury enclosed in glass, this is the last day you can buy one.
(Disclosure: I own no holdings in thermometer manufacturers, CVS, or Walgreen's.)

Thank GOD for those environmentalists looking out for me. But alas, the law is for naught. You can't find any mercury thermometers on the shelves here. It was only a matter of time before they figured out that I bought them all, broke open the glass casings, and made one giant mercury ball to roll around my palm.
You just can't have any more fun in Connecticut. I think I'll go blow some silly string in their faces.
I always have fun in Connecticut. On the other hand, it's probably because I'm lost.
