I can’t believe its 2009! Now I’ll always mistakenly write 1/2/08 on my assignments for the first week or two…. But hey who doesn’t do that?
Anyways there is a post on http://redcowz.wordpress.com with a list of archaic laws. Some of them are pretty funny! So here are some I found, with my comments in parenthesis)
In Ohio it is illegal to get a fish drunk (How would you even do that? Would a fish really just drink some Budweiser that easy so that they have to make it illegal?
In Nebraska it is illegal for a bartender to sell any beer unless they are continuously brewing a pot of soup. (???????)
In England picking up abandoned luggage is an act of terrorism. (What if you’re just returning it?)
In Minnesota a person may not cross state lines with a duck atop his head. (How would you get the duck to stay on your head?
In Texas it is illegal to shoot a buffalo from the 2nd story of a building. (What about the 3rd story?)
In Alamosa, Colorado it is illegal to throw missiles at a car. (lol)
In Boulder, Colorado, ones Llama may not graze on city property. (Are there really Llamas in Colorado?
In Iowa one armed Pianists must perform for free. (That’s kind of demeaning)
In Iowa Tanning bed facilities must warn people about the risk of getting a sunburn. (That would only be the point of a Tanning Facility)
In Kansas City, Missouri, Minor are not allowed to purchase Cap Pistols, but they may purchase shotguns
In Kansas, It is illegal to catch fish with your bare hands. (Illegal, yet impossible)
In Kansas, It is illegal to use a Donkey to help you hunt ducks. (What use would a donkey be in Duck Hunting?)
In New Mexico, Idiots may not vote. (The people who made this law must have not wanted to vote)
In Nevada, it is still legal to hang someone on your property for killing your dog. (I know a few dog people who would enjoy that law)
In Nevada it is illegal to drive a Camel on a highway (Don’t Camels live in the Middle East?)
In Illinois, the English language is not to be spoken. (I think they might have changed this one)
In Champaign, Illinois, it is illegal to urinate in your neighbor’s mouth. (Once again, the meaning of an archaic law)
In Chicago, Illinois, it is illegal to eat in a place that is on fire. (Do I really need a comment for this one?)
In Chicago, Illinois, it is illegal to give a dog whiskey. (I don’t know if the dog would want Whiskey)
