Grumpy? Don't visit Belmont California! That San Francisco Bay Area city is the first in the nation to ban all forms of grumpiness, sadness, meanness, and unpleasant behavior.
Last night, the Belmont City Council voted 12-0 in favor of a new ordinance mandating that all in the city must "put on a happy face", even if they don't mean it. Police will be empowered to give tickets to residents and visitors that are wearing frowns, speaking negatively, or otherwise behaving rudely or in an anti-social manner.
