Goofy State Laws

(Monday 30 March 2015) by Rick Clot
While perusing through the Internet I came across some unusual laws some of our states have enacted.
CALIFORNIA: You will be fined if you detonate a nuclear device (I knew there were weird folks in this state but a nuclear devise? Seriously?)
CONNECTICUT: Scrabble is not to be played while politicians are giving an oration (I think it should depend on who the politician is).
DELAWARE: You may not marry on a dare (Anyone that gets married on a dare deserves it).
FLORIDA: Women who kill themselves by electrocution in a bathtub with a self-beautification utensil will be fined (I'm curious as to how much money the state has actually brought in with this law).
GEORGIA: You cannot keep ice cream in your back pocket on Sundays (How about Saturdays?).
ILLINOIS: Midget tossing is illegal in bars, but is legal in other parts of the city if you have a permit (How and where does one apply for a permit?).
KANSAS: If two trains meet on the same track, neither shall proceed until the other has passed (Sounds pretty self explanatory to me).
KENTUCKY: It's required that you register all nude people in your home (HUH?).
MAINE: You cannot buy a car on Sunday unless it has plumbing (The car or the dealership?).
MASSACHUSETTS: The sexual position of a woman on top is illegal (Why?).
MONTANA: Seven or more Indians are considered a raiding or war party and you can shoot them (Today, we call that racism).
NEBRASKA: It's illegal to go whale fishing within the state (Didn't know there were whales in Nebraska).
NEW MEXICO: Idiots may not vote. Nor may insane people (Are they allowed to buy a gun?).
NORTH DAKOTA: Beer and pretzels cannot be served at the same time (That's un American).
PENNSYLVANIA: It's a crime to tell a fortune-teller where to dig for buried treasure (It should be a crime the other way around).
RHODE ISLAND: Lunacy is grounds for divorce (Lunacy is grounds for marriage).
SOUTH DAKOTA: You cannot sleep in a cheese factory (Mice problems, eh?).
WYOMING: It's against the law to have sex while standing up in a walk-in meat freezer (There's a funny punch line here somewhere. I'm just not sure what it is).

Until Next Time,
Chuckling to myself,
Rick
