Now, if you think about it, some of these laws do make sense... 'it's illegal to drive your sheep unchaparoned in Montana'. Think about it... Montana, where the men are men and the sheep are nervous!!! Good law, gooood law.

In Tennessee... you can't shoot any game other than whales from a moving automobile... hollow logs may not be sold... more than 8 women may not live in the same house because that would constitute a brothel... it is illegal to use a lasso to catch a fish... "Crimes against nature" are prohibited... stealing a horse is punishible by hanging... driving is not to be done while asleep... and my all time favorite(drum roll please)...the age of consent is 16, but 12 if the girl is a virgin...WHAT?!?!

speaking of strange laws just read that you can not get death sentance in the state of Washington for killing a child.You can be sentanced to death for various other crimes but not for killing a child!

In the State of Florida and other eastern seaboard states it is illegal to have oral sex even if you are married.... How did/would they enforce this law? beyond crazy

This Too Shall Pass

I got this from AMAZING Strange Truths.

Over-Watered Horses!

In Marshaltown, Iowa, it is illegal for a horse to eat a fire hydrant.

I guess they had REALLY thirsty horses!

Two-Minute Warning

In Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, an officer must honk his horn three times and wait two minutes before walking up to a suspicious car if he/she thinks that the occupants are having sex. From amazing strange truths

Two minutes?!?!?
