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.

~Throwing missles at cars is illegal.
~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)
~A person may not be seen in public without a smile on their face. (I don't think this is a dumb law - this law should be worldwide!)

~Pedestrians crossing the highways at night must wear tail lights.
~Rabbits may not be shot from motorboats.
~The state game rule prohibits the use of mules to hunt ducks.

~A person may not cross state lines with a duck atop his head.
~It is illegal to sleep naked. (who gets to check this one?)
~Hamburgers may not be eaten on Sundays. (St. Cloud - so do all the fast food resteraunts close on Sunday?)

~Birds have the right of way on all highways.
~It is considered an offense to hunt whales.
~No one may have sex in the back of an ambulance if it is responding to an emergency

~Whenever two trains meet at an intersection of said tracks, neither shall proceed until the other has. (what?)
~It is illegal to cut a woman’s hair.
~Tattooing is illegal unless it is done for medical purposes. (Brookfield)

For next week I'll find some dumb Canadian Laws - I know there have to be some!!

  1. I always love hearing about weird laws. Sometimes I can't believe they really made them.

    Thanks for sharing.


  2. Those kinds of laws always crack me up. Thanks for sharing!

  3. LOL

    I looked online for ones in my state. Here's a good one:
    Charlotte NC
    Women must have their bodies covered by at least 16 yards of cloth at all times.

  4. Those are so hilarious! Thanks for the laughs and giggles! ;)

  5. I can't shoot missles at cars anymore without fear of jail time?
    Hilarious post, Audrey! hahaha.

  6. Guess I better not move to Minnesota although as you say....who is gonna check that I'm sleeping nekkid?? On the other hand, it's too darn cold there in the winter so I'd probably end up sleeping in a jacket!

  7. LOL these are just too funny.

  8. Too funny! I just read some dumb laws in NY not to long ago.

  9. Hilarious! These are my favorites from Utah: It is considered an offense to hunt whales. (Does Utah HAVE whales?? I dont think so!!!)
    ~No one may have sex in the back of an ambulance if it is responding to an emergency call. (But if it is NOT responding to a call, I guess it's okay?? LOL

  10. Thank you for posting these. They are hilarious! Here's one from my state, Tombstone, AZ.

    It is illegal for men and women over the age of 18 to have less than one missing tooth visible when smiling.

  11. hi there I found your blog via I love finding fellow Canadian bloggers, and I think we even live in the same province! Love all the craft stuff. Will add myself as a follower!

  12. What's scary is that these laws had to have been created because someone DID tie an elephant to a parking meter or tried to fish from the back of a giraffe, lol....voila, the dumb law was born!

    By the way, I'm from Idaho and I'd really love to see the police enforce that smile law ;)

  13. HA! I think it is illegal to go bowling in Evanston, brother bowled and he went to Northwestern - so that is how we found this out. :-0

  14. so funny! thanks for sharing Audrey (and hi!)

  15. These are just great! I'm sure somebody can scare up some stupid laws here in Canada too. LOL

  16. How funny! Texas is full of dumb laws as well, I always love hearing more. :)
