Again from FL, you may not fart in a public place after 6 P.M. on Thursdays...WHAT?!

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

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?!?!?

Glowing Butts!

In the fine state of Kansas, a law requires that all pedestrians must wear taillights.

Am I the only person that is finding these strange laws?

Are you ready?

Did you know that it is illegal to:

Curse in front of a corpse in Georgia?

Skydive on Sunday if you are an unmarried woman in Florida?

To walk down the street with a duck on your head in Minnesota? (Knowing how cold it gets in Minnesota, I can understand why someone would want to put a duck on their head, ha.)

If you put a duck on your head, you're likely to get a lot more than egg on your face.
