In 1642, a man named George Spencer was hanged in New Haven for the crime of bestiality. The evidence against this heinous man: A local sow gave birth to a piglet that looked like him. George had one good eye, as did this piglet. In addition, the animal was hairless and had reddish white skin like a child’s. The sow was called to give evidence, and was also duly slaughtered.

I have a feeling the New Haven Puritans would’ve aced Logic.
