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?!?!?

Keep Your Beak Where I Can See It!

In Ontario California, it is unlawful for roosters to crow within city limits.

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.

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

Years ago in England (we're talking about the 15th/16th century here), the death penalty was given to all manner of crimes, including being on the Highway with a dirty face.

The law has changed much over the years, but I understand that one law was never repealled. Apparently, imitating a Chelsea Pensioner still carries the sentence of death!

Pardon my colonial ignorance, but what is a Chelsea Pensioner?

How best to describe them.... they live at Chelsea Hospital, in London. The only people who can live there are retired soldiers who were injuerd in wars (my late Grandad was one). They wear red uniforms, with a three pointed hat.

Thanks you for the enlightenment. I've heard the phrase before, and always wondered who they were.
