Stupid Laws

July 13, 2010

So, I came across a Facebook post from Crochet Extraordinaire (my words, not hers) Theresa over at http://crochet-mania.blogspot.com/  that asked her fans about stupid laws where they live.  Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Baths may not be taken between the months of October and March. (Indiana)
  • It is unlawful for a minor under the age of eighteen to play a pinball machine. (South Carolina SECTION 20-7-8915)
  • An ancient by-law still allows locals born in York,England, to shoot Scotsmen with a bow and arrow within the city walls, if they are out after sunset. That’s a law standing from the 13th Century!
  • Honking someone elses horn is prohibited. (Missouri) {Or Missourah, depending on where you live…}
  • A woman isn’t allowed to cut her own hair without her husband’s permission. (Michigan)
  • Fishing while on the back of an elephant is strictly prohibited. (Idaho)
  • It considered an offense to hunt whales in Utah.  {Seriously?  Whales?  Utah?}

What stupid laws are there where you live?
