America's Weirdest Real Laws...


Just for the fun of it, here are some of the best strange, and real laws in the United States (don't tell your lawyer friends).


It is illegal to...


...Pawn your dentures in Las Vegas.

...Tie your pet crocodile to a fire hydrant in Michigan.

...Walk your elephant without a leash in Wisconsin.

...Hunt whales from your automobile in California.

...Serve ice cream on cherry pie in Kansas.

...Draw funny faces on window shades in Garfield County, Montana.

...Serve on the jury if you are dead in Oregon.

...Hunt moths under streetlights in Los Angeles.

...Shave in the middle of Main Street in Tylertown, Mississippi.

...Push a live moose out of a moving airplane in Alaska.

...Open a can of food with a gun in Indiana.

...Drive a goat cart past a church "in ridiculous fashion" in Chaseville, New York.

...Charge a bald man more than twenty-five cents for a haircut in Louisiana.

...Blindfold cows on public highways in Arkansas.

...Sell ice after 6 p.m. in Newark, New Jersey without a prescription.

...Carry a concealed weapon longer than six feet in Seattle.


Those laws make certain members of Congress almost sound like good lawmakers.

I remember this one from school:

In Bexley (a suburb of Columbus), Ohio, Ordinance number 223, of 09/09/19 prohibits the installation and usage of slot machines in outhouses.

Oh, darn! Now what am I supposed to do with all those tokens I took in there?!?

Last I heard, Indiana still has a law stating that automobiles must stop and turn off engine when horses are passing.

I don't know why dead people can't serve on juries in Oregon. After all, they can still vote in Chicago.

cubman;

Thanks for the information. I am going to discontinue walking my elephant with out a leash. I am sure the PD would enjoy issuing a citation to me for that too.

In Memphis, Tennessee, a woman is not to drive a car unless a man warns approaching motorists or pedestrians by walking in front of the car that is being driven.
