Stop! In the Name of the Law...

It is good to live in the USA...but you just gotta wonder at some of the laws we're required to live by:

In San Francisco, California, it is illegal to wipe your car with dirty underwear. (Whooo, I'd be SO arrested if I lived there...)

In Kansas, it is illegal to practice knife-throwing at any man wearing a striped shirt. (Soooo, are polka-dots OK? What if the striped-shirt-wearer is a woman?)

Canton, Mississippi has a law that says you can't kill a squirrel with a gun in a courtroom. (I just don't even know what to say for this one.)

North Carolinians may not use elephants to plow cotton fields. (What about corn fields?)

In Atlanta, Georgia, it is against the law to tie a giraffe to a telephone pole or street lamp. (I guess tying it to a fence is alright, though...)

In Idaho, it is illegal for a man to give his sweetheart a box of chocolates weighing less than 50 pounds. (Drat! This one was repealed. Guess I better go unpack...)

It is illegal to flick boogers out of a window in Alabama. (Oh, I can barely type for the huge giggle fit now in progress!)

A law in Alaska says one may not push a moose from a moving airplane. And, one may shoot a sleeping bear, but may not wake the bear to take it's picture.

In California, you cannot move more than two thousand sheep down Hollywood Boulevard at one time. (Crap! Now how will I move the dang things?)

Also in sunny California, a vehicle without a driver may not exceed 60 miles per hour. (Let's ponder that one a moment...)

Connecticut law says a pickle is not a pickle unless it bounces.

In Maryland, it is illegal to take a lion to the movies.

Florida law says one is prohibited from farting after 6 PM on Thursdays. (But once Friday comes, well, let 'er rip!)

One may not catch a fish with one's bare hands in Indiana. Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, the only body part that may be used to catch fish...is one's mouth.

Kansans may not use mules to hunt ducks.

If you live in Maine, it is illegal to step out of a plane while it is in mid-flight. (Alrighty.)

In Montana, a sheep may not be in the cab of a truck without a chaperone. (Baaaaaaad sheep!)

Nebraska has a law on the books that says a parent may be arrested for their child burping in church. (So, what happens if it's the parent that burps?)

It is illegal in New York to throw a ball at someone's head for fun. (It must be OK as long as you're serious about it.)

Ohioans who own tigers must notify authorities within one hour if the tiger escapes. (Edna: Hey, Earl! The dang tiger's out again! You better call the authorities. Earl: Alright, alright! Just lemme finish my sandwich first.)

In Wilbur, Washington, it is illegal to ride an ugly horse.

Pennsylvanians are prohibited from singing in the bathtub. (Uh oh! Handsome Boy better watch out...)

In South Dakota, no horses are permitted into Fountain Inn unless they are wearing pants.

Wyoming has a law that says one may not take a picture of a rabbit from January to April without an official permit. (Geez. The Easter Bunny is getting really strict on the paparazzi thing...)

Yep, there's a ton of silly laws out there, and not just here in the States. Drop me a comment with some of your faves not listed here (and remember, keep them kid-friendly, please)...
