From the Texas laws:

It is illegal to take more than three sips of beer at a time while standing.

Judging from an old video of mr President I think this is a law he forgot once :p


Reading all the nonsense on that page makes me wonder if those are really laws, or it's all been made up...

I think that's actually true... they've been able to (fairly?) elect Bush... twice!
So why not voting so stupid laws :p

Washington:

It is illegal to pretend that one's parents are rich.
A law to reduce crime states: "It is mandatory for a motorist with criminal intentions to stop at the city limits and telephone the chief of police as he is entering the town."
Men who deflower virgins, regardless of age or marital status, may face up to five years in jail.(Holly crap!)
Women who sit on men's laps on buses or trains without placing a pillow between them face an automatic six-month jail term. (Im really starting to dislike washington now)

While I can't vouch for any of these specific laws, I know that laws like them are real.The vast majority of them are nearly 100 years old (and made more sense then than they do now, like the ones about hiding your car in the bushes when a horse comes by), and a great many of them were local laws in small towns (picture andy griffith passing a law against having more than 10 people on your lawn so as to prevent the town from ruining his yard every time aunt bea bakes a pie), but they're all real laws.

USA: a country of freedom... for the pretty and the rich

Greetings,

A couple from my state:
*Pedestrians crossing the highways at night must wear tail lights.

*No one may catch fish with his bare hands.
(I think they should change "may" to "can" in this case.)

*It is illegal to spit on a sidewalk.
(You see these in a lot of states, its really not that stupid, just outdated. The idea at the time was that malaria spreads through bodily fluids, and spewing your diseases all over public places was a very bad idea.)

*The installation of bathtubs is prohibited.
(Wow. I, I didn't know, Officer! Honest!)

*Before proceeding through the interesection of Douglas and Broadway, a motorist is required to get out of their vehice and fire three shot gun rounds into the air. (Duh, everyone round here knows that.)

*It is against the law to leave your car running unattended.
(Ha ha, what a stupid ... wait a minute. That makes perfectly reasonable sense, shouldn't every state have this law?)

And in a neighboring state:
*Dogs must have a permit signed by the mayor in order to congregate in groups of three or more on private property.
(Ha! They would have to rest 75% of ******* country in order to enforce this law. :lol: )

*Oklahoma will not tolerate anyone taking a bite out of another's hamburger.

*Anyone arrested for soliciting a hooker must have their name and picture shown on television. (Ouch.)

*Whaling is illegal. (Of course it is.)

*Tattoos are banned. (See comment under dog congregation law.)

*If you wear New York Jets clothing, you may be put in jail.

*Molesting an automobile is illegal.
(Whoa ho ho. I want to hear the story behind this one.)

*It is unlawful to put any hypnotized person in a display window.
(This one too.)

If you can't take a bath, you can at least have a shower... right?

Most of the bath/shower related ones harken back to the days before indoor plumbing. There's one where you have to get your neighbors' permission before you can take a bath.
I used to get a bunch of crazy laws books from the book clubs in like 4th or 5th grade. I remember ones like:
donkeys can't sleep in bathtubs
you can't eat peanuts in church
when driving in the countryside, you have to stop and send up a flare every 2 miles (or something, I don't recall the exact distance)
if you are driving down the road and spook a horse, you must pull off the road. If the horse is still spooked, you must disassemble your car and hide the pieces in the bushes.
There was one about women not being allowed to walk down the streets unescorted.

So some of these laws are so old that no one even cares about them? :p
Why don't they just remove them then?
