# In Salt Lake County, Utah, it’s illegal to walk down the street carrying a violin in a paper bag.
# In San Francisco, it’s illegal to pile horse manure more than six feet high on a street corner.
# In Devon, Texas, it is against the law to make furniture while you are nude.
# In Oklahoma, you can be arrested for making ugly faces at a dog. ( What if it’s an ugly dog…?)
# In California it is illegal for a vehicle without a driver to exceed 60 miles per hour.
# In Florida men seen publicly in any kind of strapless gown can be fined.
# In South Carolina it is legal to beat your wife on the court house steps on Sundays.
# In Tennessee, you are breaking the law if you drive while sleeping…
# In New York, the penalty for jumping off a building is: Death. ( Go figure…)
# In Danville, Pennsylvania, all fire hydrants must be checked one hour before all fires.
# In Pennsylvania, it’s against the law to tie a dollar bill on a string on the ground and pull it away when someone tries to pick it up.
# In New York City, it’s illegal for a restaurant to call a sandwich a “corned beef sandwich” if it’s made with white bread and mayonnaise. ( I agree 100%! )
# In California it is illegal to set a mouse trap without a hunting license.
# In France, it is against the law to sell an “E.T” doll. They have a law forbidding the sale of dolls that do not have human faces.

# In Calgary Alberta, there is still a by-law that requires businesses within the city to provide rails for tying up horses.
# In Wilbur, Washington, it is illegal to ride an ugly horse. ( but can you make faces at him? )
# In Louisiana, biting someone with your natural teeth is considered “simple assault,” but biting someone with your dentures is “aggravated assault.”
# In the state of Washington, it is illegal to have sex with a virgin under any circumstances. (Including the wedding night.)
# In Switzerland, it is illegal for a man to relieve himself while standing up after 10pm.( even with the light on? )
# In Florida, it is illegal to fart in a public place after 6 P.M. on Thursdays.
# In Massachusetts, it is illegal to go to bed without first having a bath. (However, another law prohibits bathing on Sunday)
# In Jidda, Saudi Arabia, women were banned from using hotel swimming pools in 1979.
# In Samoa, it’s a crime to forget your own wife’s birthday…

lol, great post, I know there one in the uk that is still in law for some mad reason.

A pregnant women can pee in the street, so long as she has one hand on a black taxis!

She can also ask a police man for his hat to pee in and he has to give her it!

Those are great! When I worked in insurance I once found a whole stack (approx 300 pgs) of these that I think someone mistakenly printed and left on the printer. I kept them on my desk so that whenever some one said that something was wrong or they can't do that (and the like) I randomly picked a law and read it to them. Usually it shut them up, my friends started asking me for the "weird law of the day". Now that I think of it, I believe I kept that stack when I we closed.
