Or - would they actually arrest you for these laws
Had a professor in university once say, "For every new law that is created, you will live long enough to regret."
Proved true more often than not.
Arkansas: In Fayetteville, it is illegal to kill "any living creature."
Wow-- never boil water or use disinfectant.
California: It is illegal to cry on the witness stand in Los Angeles courts.
You would never know that from watching Perry Mason.
Delaware: Getting married on a dare is grounds for an annulment.
Shouldn't all marriages have grounds for annulment then?
Florida: Unmarried women who parachute on Sundays may be jailed.
Maybe Florida women who should press their state to take a tip from Delaware.
Georgia: In Quitman, it is illegal for a chicken to cross a road.
The response to that one is so obvious I won't bother.
Georgia: It is illegal to change the clothes on a storefront mannequin unless the shades are down.
This one I've heard of before. It was passed because there were several wrecks that took place in front of a store where they changed them in view of the street.
Idaho: Boxes of candy given as romantic gifts must weigh more than 50 pounds.
And how much would the recipients of those gifts end up weighing?
Kansas: In Lang, it is illegal to ride a mule down Main Street in August, unless the animal is wearing a straw hat.
I used to wonder why Dirty Sally put that straw hat on her mule.
North Carolina: In Charlotte, women must have their bodies covered by at least 16 yards of cloth at all times.
Showering must be very difficult or sloppy.
Oregon: In Marion, ministers are forbidden from eating garlic or onions before delivering a sermon.
That's scriptural; it says somewhere "let no filthy communication come from your mouths."
Texas: It is illegal to milk another person's cow.
Even if that other person milks yours? What is that saying?-- "Teat for tat?"
Utah: A husband is responsible for every criminal act committed by his wife while she is in his presence.
I figured it was legal somewhere for a woman to murder her husband, as long she shot or stabbed from the front.
Exactly why is this a useless law?
I would say the man who sponsored the law, got in trouble with his wife? :tongue3:
Well shoot. I'll have to cancel my trip to South Dakota. I was really looking forward to staying awake as long as possible before the cheese factory tour started so I could properly pass out on a giant wheel of cheddar.
It's kinda been my lifelong dream.
What a world, what a world *sigh*
Oh no! Sharia Law has come to Charlotte!
Cats may not run loose without having been fit with a taillight
When I lived in Montana in the 60's, I remember that -according to law at the time - your cars and motorycles must be tied to a hitching post when you left them.
You dont want them to go wandering off by themselves now, do you?:smilewinkgrin: :laugh:
