Dumb Plays in the Face of Fate

Put down that hot dog. It's a crime and a sin. Well, it once was. In the third century, the Catholic Church declared sausages a sin. A hundred years later, Constantine the Great, Rome's Christian emperor, declared sausages illegal. Why? Because they were part of the libertine rituals practiced at a pagan festival for the Roman god Lupercus. But the sausage prohibition didn't work. Bootleg butchers continued to make sausages, and people ate them illegally behind closed doors. Eventually, the government gave up, and the sausage prohibition was repealed.
