13 Stupid State Laws That'll Make You Laugh

Thursday, August 6, 2009

Seems it's not just our current Congressmen and women who have taken an recess from intelligence.

The following state laws were inacted many, many years ago and are currently active laws today (and though, thankfully, seldom - if ever - enforced):

  1. In Tennessee, more than 8 women may not live in the same house because that would constitute a brothel.

  2. In Idaho, riding a merry-go-round on Sundays is considered a crime.

  3. In Alabama, boogers may not be flicked into the wind.

  4. In Michigan, willfully destroying your old radio is prohibited.

  5. In Hawaii, coins are not allowed to be placed in one's ears.

  6. In New Hampshire, it is considered an offense to check into a hotel under an assumed name.

  7. In Florida, it is considered an offense to shower naked.

  8. In Wyoming, you may not take a picture of a rabbit during the month of June.

  9. In Arizona, donkeys cannot sleep in bathtubs.

  10. In New Orleans, Louisiana, it illegal for a woman to drive a car unless her husband is waving a flag in front of it.

  11. In Oklahoma, dogs must have a permit signed by the mayor in order to congregate in groups of three or more on private property.

  12. In Utah, it is illegal not to drink milk.

  13. In West Virginia, whistling underwater is prohibited.

Know what I wanna know? Who was doing what to make lawmakers even think about enacting such rules?

#7 cracked me up! How else is one supposed to shower? I wonder if any of the powers that be in Florida has ever had anyone arrested because they showered naked!

Happy TT! :)

Whenever I see these lists of laws I'm always amazed at how ridiculous they are. I suppose it takes more time and money to remove some of these from the books than it does to just ignore them. One does have to wonder though, why some of them were made law in the first place????

i heard a few like this on the radio yesterday. so ludicrious - but doesn't it make you wonder WHY the law came to be passed?

I think it's still against the law to push a moose out of an airplane in Alaska.

I've apparently broken the law many times in Florida and Louisiana and didn't know it.

Happy Thursday 13!

I love to see old lawas that are still actually laws but obviously don't have anything to do with modern times. too funny.
