I find these to be quite humorous. xD You guys have any stupid laws in your towns? Look 'em up.

Minnesota:

It is illegal to stand around any building without a good reason to be there.

A person may not cross state lines with a duck atop his head.

It is illegal to sleep naked.

Citizens may not enter Wisconsin with a chicken on their head.

Oral sex is prohibited. (Repealed)

All bathtubs must have feet.

Residents of even numbered addresses may not water their plants on odd-numbered days excluding the thirty first day where it applies. (Cottage Grove)

It shall be the duty of any policeman or any other officer to enforce the provisions of this Section, and if any cat is found running at large, or which is found in any street, alley or public place, it shall be the duty of any policeman or other officer of the city to kill such cat. (Hibbing)

Red cars may not drive down Lake Street. (Minneapolis)

Driving a truck with dirty tires is considered a public nuisance. (Minnetonka)

Placing tacks on a sidewalk is considered a public nuisance. (Minnetonka)

Well, ha ha!

These laws are absurd.

Anyway, this is a very stupid rule in Lebanon.

If someone falls of a building and onto a car, the owner of the car takes the responsiblity for this action.

I tried hard in finding silly Swedish laws, but my Google-fu is failing me.

I did, however, find this:

You may only own half a meter down in the ground of any land you own.

Also, I've been told (unable to verify this) - if a burglar, intending to break into your house, or having already broken into your house, slips on your doorstep and injures himself, he can sue you for damages.

The one about the cat (Hibbing) has to do with wild cats, not domestic cats (i.e. mountain lions).


COLORADO:

It is illegal for liquor stores to sell food or grocery stores to sell any alcohol except beer that is at most 3.2% alcohol. (You can't buy liquor anywhere except for licensed bars or Inns on Sunday)

Car dealers may not show cars on a Sunday.

Logan County
It is illegal for a man to kiss a woman while she is asleep (This is part of a municipal code which allows you to cite for unlawful sexual contact, so it's not as stupid as you think)

Pueblo
It is illegal to let a dandelion grow within the city limits (This is part of a municipal code enacted to help clean up the town)

Silverthorne
Vehicles may not park on the roadway at any time (This is part of a municipal code enacted due to the slightly narrow streets and all the snow)




It's strange how you look at things differently wen you're the one enforcing the codes *L*

Cori's right though, it's only context that makes them funny… mainly the lack of it. Eve so, they're good and funny ^^

For North Dakota:
It is illegal to lie down and fall asleep with your shoes on.

It is legal to shoot an Indian on horseback, provided you are in a covered wagon.

Beer and pretzels can't be served at the same time in any bar or restaurant.

Town of Devil's Lake, where I went to that shitty boarding school:
New Year's celebrations are somewhat bland in this town as fireworks may not be set off after 11:00 PM!

Fargo only:
One may be jailed for wearing a hat while dancing, or even for wearing a hat to a function where dancing is taking place.
I'm on hitatus while I redo one of my webcomics. Be sure to check it out when I'n done! :)
