I read once in a book of weird facts heard that slurping soup is technically illegal in New Jersey, and, looking it up, have found a ton of lists of "wacky laws" saying that this is true. Nothing I have found so far actually mentions the specific statute, though.
There are so many things unequivocally saying that this is true that I would like something clearly saying whether it is or (more likely) isn't true.
Is it true or was it ever true that slurping soup in New Jersey is illegal? If not, is it known how this claim originated?
