Charlie Bee: I agree with the splashing pedestrians law! As someone who has been on the receiving end of splashes DONE ON PURPOSE!!! also; those Portuguese duelers might as well bleed for a good cause. Let the blood go to someone who needs it, the ground don't.

you can sue for false imprisonment if a security guard takes you to the store managers office and falsly accuses you of theft, even though it is his job to stop you

I'm not sure where this is (maybe Kentucky)....it's illegal to carry an ice cream cone in your pocket. I can see why that's a problem.

In Texas...it is a hanging offense to steal anothers horse

In Virginia...it is illegal to take a bath more than once a month in the winter and more than once every three weeks in the summer. It is also illegal for anyone to take a bath on Saturday and Sundy.

This isnt a law, but more of a police joke...In Knoxville TN, you can be pulled over for having anything relating to the University of Florida displayed in your vehicle

My friend and I were reading in this book about funny laws and such, that it is illegal for the post master of a post office to shoot ducks in season or not!

Better for people to think you are stupid, than open your mouth and prove it!

In Wilmington,NC it is against the law to walk backward down the street with one foot in the gutter and the other on the side walk while whistling! There is also a law allowing a husband to beet his wife on the steps of city hall once a month. In West Reading,PA the law is that no more that three unrelated people can live in one house. This one as of 2000 is inforced if you are not white,middle class and friends with the county commish.

In Leland, NC you cannot be prosecuted for beating your dog, cat etc. Animals are considered property and you can beat them but, if someone else hits your animal they can be put in jail. Let Green peace catch wind of this!

in the UK, even though the death sentence has been banned for every other crime, you could still be hung for commiting treason.

In Alabama it's illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating a vehicle. I wonder why they had to put that one on the books?

Davina; Probably because some fool did it once. Altho, why a law, you would think some other law would cover that situation. I did see a magician (or maybe psychic) drive around with a blindfold on some tv show a while back.It wasn't in Alabama tho. I think it was in Las Vegas. he did drive good, a lot better than some people!
