Top 10: Odd Laws

Top 10I need to come up with more lists. It is just hard to get inspired sometimes. This one came to me when I was supposed to be doing something else.

#10: In Alabama, you may not have an ice cream cone in your back pocket at any time. This is the law that sparked the list. The speaker mentioned it in a training I was attending last week.

#9: In North Andover, Massachusetts carrying “space guns” is prohibited. So, if Phasers are banned I wonder if Light Sabers are legal?

#8:  It is illegal to use a lasso to catch a fish in Tennessee. Now, that is something I would like to see.

#7: Did you know in Vermont it is illegal to whistle underwater. That is one I would like to see.

#6: In Oklahoma it’s forbidden to take a bite out of another person’s hamburger. Hmm… I wish I had known about that one years ago.

#5: Hawaii has a statue against placing coins in one’s ears. Guess this must be rough on the preschool scene.

#4: In Florida if you tie an elephant to a parking meter, you must pay the same parking fee as you would for a vehicle. I guess this is good news for those looking to alternate forms of transportation due to rising gas prices. Wonder if elephants are easy to parallel park.

#3: No matter how much Rover or Fluffy beg  it is against Illinois law to allow pets to light up an after dinner cigar.  I guess cigarettes and pipes are permissible.

#2: In Ohio it is illegal to ride on the roof of a taxi cab. You have to wonder why this law was even needed. Did someone actually try to ride on the roof?

#1:  In Alaska it is legal to wake sleeping bear for a photo shoot. I think it also probably dangerous to do so.
