Weird US Laws


Old timey laws in this country are pretty strange. I found this big list of some good ones, here are a few I liked:

West Virginia: It is against the law for men to have sex with any animal over 40 pounds in weight.

Washington: It's illegal in Wilbur, Washington, to ride an ugly horse.

Seattle: Women who sit on men's laps on buses or trains without placing a pillow between them face an automatic six-month jail term. No one may set fire to another person's property without prior permission. It is illegal to carry a fishbowl or aquarium onto a bus because the sound of the water sloshing may disturb other passengers.

Tennessee: In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive a car unless there is a man either running or walking in front of it, waving a red flag to warn approaching motorists and pedestrians.

South Carolina: Fountain Inn: Horses are to wear pants at all times.

Ohio: A policeman may bite a dog to quiet him. However, the reverse is not true, even if it's a police dog.

NY: Donkeys are not allowed to sleep in bathtubs in Brooklyn.

Iowa: A man with a mustache may never kiss a woman in public.

Kansas: Rabbits may not be shot from motorboats.

NJ: Manville: It is illegal to offer whiskey or cigarettes to animals a the local zoo.

Nevada: In Las Vegas, it's against the law to pawn your dentures.

Mass: At a wake, mourners may eat no more than three sandwiches.

Missouri: Children can buy shotguns in Kansas City, Missouri... but not toy cap guns.
