It's illegal to ride your bicycle into a swimming pool in Huntington Beach, CA.

It's illegal for frogs to crok after midnight in Memphis, TN.

I think it's still illegal in CA to drive in your bathrobe.

In Oxford, MS (Hotty Toddy!) it's illegal to drive around the town square more than 100 times in successsion.

In Utah, a husband is responsible for all crimes committed by his wife while in his presence.

And my favorite....In Montana, it's illegal to have a sheep in the cab of your truck without a chaperone.

A few of my own...

You are breaking a law if you offer a cigar to a dog while in Zion, Illinois. There was a huge problem with smoking, I was told.

Don't even think about throwing a knife at a man in a striped suit in Natoma, Kansas. Okay. So people can murder a polka dotted guy, but not a striped guy? Wear stripes, people!

It's against the law to whistle underwater in Vermont. True... but I live across the way in New Hampshire, and I still can't do it.

Logan County, California has a law prohibiting kissing a sleeping woman. So, there's another version of Sleeping Beauty for the lawmakers of Logan County?

My favorite... While in California, do not, under penalty of law, use your dirty underwear as a dirt rag. Oh, man!

Just Jen,

In Oxford, MS (Hotty Toddy!) What do you mean by Hotty Toddy????.

I'm not a 100% sure about the location of this law but I am pretty confident that it is New York.

You CAN eat peanuts whilst a orchestra is playing. You CAN walk backwards whilst the orhestra is playing. You CANNOT do both at the same time.

In England: when driving near puddles, it is illegal for drivers to splash pedestrians. they face a 1,000 fine if the pedestrian gets the licence plate number! There used to be a law that said that men could beat there wives with a stick as long as the stick was no wider than the width of their thumb. In 1649, oliver cromwell passed a law banning christmas.(many people who ignored the law were actually arrested!)

In paraguay, it is illegal to duel unless both participants are registered blood donors.

In new york, there is still a statute on the books that has never been repealed making it illegal for women to smoke in public! In kentucky, you are legally required to take at least one bath a year!

Just because I'm crazy doesn't mean that I'm not normal :o)

this law is enforced completely in one country and people are arrested if they don't obey it: women aren't allowed to drive at all.

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.

Are there a lot of Portuguese in Paraguay?

life is for living

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
