    50 States, 50 Ridiculous Laws!

    These gave me a good laugh on finals week...These were two of my favorites...

    ...If you're a one armed piano player in Iowa, you must perform for free.
    Can you charge a fee if you play with your feet?

    ...In Lexington, Kentucky, you are only considered to be "drunk" when you "cannot hold on to the ground"
    So, as long as you can touch the sidewalk after a few shots of rye, then, by all means, go ahead and get behind the wheel of that Chevy!

    ...In Tombstone, Arizona, it's illegal for citizens over the age of 18-years-old to have more than one tooth missing when smiling.
    Guess nobody who's ever been on the Jerry Springer show will ever be able to live there.


    I was thinking, good thing it's not an Arkansas law. They could build enough jails.

    Re: 50 States, 50 Ridiculous Laws!

    ...Wyoming law prohibits you from snapping a photo of a rabbit during the entire month of June.
    June is such a hot, sticky month and the bunnies feel they don't look their best then, since they have a number of bad "hare" days during that time.


    What the hell??????

    I'm guessing a lot of them are just weird (and maybe wrong) interpretations of existing laws. For example, the Maryland law prohibiting taking a lion to the movies makes sense if you think about the big picture. It's probably illegal to take a lion to any crowded public place, not just a theater. Some of these are just bizarre, and I'd like to know where they're getting them.
