Old, Crazy Laws

I thought that I would lighten things up a bit here this week and have some fun. This weekís articles are about old, laws that are actually still on the books in a lot of these United States. Some of these you may have heard before and some will be new to you. Enjoy.

Women and the Law:

In Michigan, women are not allowed to go to the hair stylist to have your hair altered in any way without your husbandís express permission.

In Florida, it is illegal for women to fall asleep while under a hair dryer in a hair salon and if you are an unmarried thrill seeker, you had better go someplace else because unmarried women cannot skydive on Sundays in Florida either.

A woman in Memphis, Tennessee is not allowed to drive a car down the road without a man walking in front of her and carrying a red flag to warn other drivers. (I love that one.)

Animals:

In Pennsylvania, if you are driving down a road in your car and you see a team of skittish horses coming toward you, you have to get out of the vehicle, dismantle it piece by piece and hide it in the bushes until the horses pass by so you do not scare them.

In Missouri, it is unlawful to drive down the highway with an uncaged bear in your car.

In Orlando, Florida, when you park your elephant at a meter, you need to deposit the same amount as you would a car.

Blue Laws:

In Salem, West Virginia, it is illegal to eat candy and hour and a half before church service begins.

No restaurant in Kansas is allowed to serve cherry pie on Sunday either.

It is illegal to eat ice cream at the counter of the Ice Cream shop in Winona Lake, Wisconsin on Sunday.

You can also not play with marbles, dominoes, or yo-yos on Sunday in a few States either.

If you plan on molesting butterflies, donít do it in California for it is illegal there.

Other Crazy Laws:

Did you know that if you live in Alabama, it is illegal for you to drive a car while blindfolded?

In Florida, it is illegal for men to be seen publicly in any kind of strapless gown.

In Kentucky, no one is considered drunk until they can no longer hold onto the ground.

Also, in Kentucky, if you plan on transporting an ice cream cone in your pocket, you had better think again because it is illegal to do so there.

A parent can be arrested in Nebraska if their child burps in church and finally:

Any woman living in New Mexico cannot appear in public unshaven.

I hope you enjoyed reading these laws as much as I enjoyed finding them. There are so many crazy old laws in the states, have some fun and look up some more in your state.
