Sometimes in one of the papers that Brad gets - they have a list of Dumb Laws that still exist. Here are a few from some States:
~It is illegal to wear a fake moustache that causes laughter in church.
~Women are able to retain all property they owned prior to marriage in the case of divorce. However, this provision does not apply to men.
~It is illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating a vehicle.

~It is illegal to ride a horse while under the influence.
~It is unlawful to lend your vacuum cleaner to your next-door neighbor. (Denver)
~The state constitution allows for freedom of speech, a trial by jury, and pregnant pigs to not be confined in cages.
~It is illegal to sell your children. (does this mean it's legal in some States?)
~If an elephant is left tied to a parking meter, the parking fee has to be paid just as it would for a vehicle.
~Residents may not fish from a giraffe’s back. (Boise)
