Strange Laws

What makes our minds work like they do? My son read some of these to me today. Thought you'd enjoy them.

  • It against the law in Connecticut for a man to write love letters to a girl whose mother or father has forbidden the relationship. (What? it's 1820?)
  • In Michigan married couples must live together -- or be imprisioned. (That makes sense. LOL) other images of cats
  • In the state of Colorado, a pet cat, if loose, must have a tail light. (Oh, ho, how does that work?)
  • In Phoenix, Arizona, you can't through a hotel lobby with spurs on. (Must be afraid someone's going to get hurt)
  • In California, a law created in 1925 makes it illegal to wiggle while dancing. (snicker)
  • In Utah, daylight must be visible between dancing couples. (I guess nighttime doesn't matter!)
  • In Michigan, it is against the law for a lady to lift her skirt more than 6 inches while walking through a mud puddle. (They'd better check these oldies, but goodies. A little out of date, wouldn't you say?)
Eastern Cottontail (Sylvilagus floridanus)
  • In North Carolina, it is against the law for a rabbit to race down the street. (Try telling that to the bunny)
  • In Georgia, it's against the law to spread a false rumor. (Maybe more states ought to make that a law!)
  • In West Virginia, one can't cook sauerkraut or cabbage due to the odors. The offense is subject to imprisonment. (Yikes!)

That is so funny. If all of these were abided by we would have a better country. Those are great though. Dan likes the Sauerkraut law. HAHA
