Strange Laws

You can’t plow a cotton field with an elephant in North Carolina
Could someone from North Carolina tell me why not because I have successfully ploughed many a field with my elephant!
Lawn darts are illegal in Canada.
 Someone tell me why, and if this is true, why are Mounties legal?
In Idaho a citizen is forbidden by law to give another citizen a box of candy that weighs more than 50 pounds.
But is it ok to give them two 25pound boxes?
Every citizen of Kentucky is required by law to take a bath at least once a year
Anyone from Kentucky brave enough to tell us if you’ve broken that law or do you know someone who has, we have to know.
Its against the law to whale hunt in Oklahoma
Where the hell are the whales in Oklahoma?
An old law in Bellingham Washington made it illegal for a woman to take more than 3 steps backwards while dancing.
So if that’s enforced, the dance would end three miles from were it started!
In Breton, Alabama there is a law on the town’s books against riding down the street in a motorboat.
There goes my fishing trip
Connecticut and Rhode Island never ratified the 18th amendment, Prohibition.
God they must be getting thirsty there.
In New York State, it is still illegal to shoot a rabbit from a moving trolley car.
Well I wont be going there on holiday then.
In riverside, California, there is an old law on the city’s books which makes it illegal to kiss unless both people wipe their lips with rose water.
This one easy to work out, the guy who made rose water lobbied for that.
In Saudi Arabia, a woman reportedly may divorce her husband if he does not keep her supplied with coffee.
Don’t they have about ten wives’s there; they would be making coffee all day.
In San Salvador drunk drivers can be punished by death before a firing squad.
That would make you think twice before you drove over the limit.
In Kentucky, its illegal to carry ice cream in your back pocket.
And hopefully they too are punished by a firing squad!
In Somalia, Africa it’s been decreed illegal to carry chewing gum on the tip of your nose.
I’m running out of places to go on holiday here, and places to carry my gum!
In some smaller towns in the state of Arizona, its illegal to wear suspenders.
Well I’m definitely not going there then!
In 1845 Boston had an ordinance banning bathing unless you had a doctors prescription
Does anyone from Boston know anyone who still obeys that?
In Michigan its illegal to place a skunk inside your bosses desk
What about putting it in the filing cabinet?
Its illegal in Alabama to wear a fake mustache that causes laughter in church.
Could someone in Alabama put that law to the test, and get back to us.
In parts of Alaska its illegal to feed alcohol to a moose.
Why don’t they move all the moose’s to Connecticut and Rhode Island, problem solved.
You’re subject to fines or imprisonment for making ugly faces at dogs in Oklahoma.
What if you are just ugly, and who is the judge?... the dog or the police?
Christmas was once illegal in England.
Wish it was now it would save me a fortune.
In Hartford, Connecticut, it is illegal for a husband to kiss his wife on Sundays.
This law should surely be extended to cover the whole week!
