Funny State Laws

So here is a lovely website I stumbled upon.

The website lists very silly laws that at one point or another were held in their respected state.

I will dabble into a few of the states to get you excited to read the rest of the site.

Florida (Of Course I Choose Florida...We're In Florida!)

* If an elephant is left tied to a parking meter, the parking fee has to be paid just as it would for a vehicle.
* In Miami, it is illegal for a man to wear any kind of strapless gown.
* Unmarried women who parachute on Sundays may be jailed.
* When having sex, only the missionary position is legal.
* In Sarasota, it is illegal to sing while wearing a bathing suit.

New Jersey (Anyone who knows me knows NJ would be my next state of choice)

* Spray paint may not be sold without a posted sign warning juveniles of the penalty for creating graffiti.
* It is illegal to wear a bullet-proof vest while committing a murder.
* It is against the law for a man to knit during the fishing season.

Now For A Few Other Random States...


* It is illegal to take more than three sips of beer at a time while standing.
* It is illegal to drive without windshield wipers. You don't need a windshield, but you must have the wipers.
* It is illegal for one to shoot a buffalo from the second story of a hotel.
* It is illegal to milk another person's cow.
* A recently passed anticrime law requires criminals to give their victims 24 hours notice, either orally or in writing, and to explain the nature of the crime to be committed.
* The entire Encyclopedia Britannica is banned in Texas because it contains a formula for making beer at home.


* It is illegal to fish for whales on Sunday.
* It is illegal to get a fish drunk.

New Mexico

* It's forbidden for a female to appear unshaven in public.
* Hunting is prohibited in Mountain View Cemetery.

Haha. Did you laugh out loud? I know I did! Here is the link if you would like the check out some more silly laws that have been instated at some point in time in the US.

There's no way all of those are true. If they are that is crazy if not outright hilarious.
