Weird Laws: Part IV

It's time for some amusing laws, with your host, me.

INDIANA

It is illegal to inhale glue fumes. That's no fun. What are the 5-9 year olds going to do during recess?

It is illegal for a liquor store to sell candy. Now the real question is, is a candy store allowed to sell liquor?

IOWA

Tanning salons are required to post warnings about sunburns.
Underneath the warning you can choose from original or extra crispy.

In Cedar Rapids, it is illegal to tell fortunes.
Is that origami game that kids play with the numbers on it that is folded up many times count? You know what I'm talking about, I don't know what that is called.

KANSAS

In Derby it is illegal to damage vending machines.
If I don't get my snickers bar then that vending machine is cruisin' for a bruisin' (who's mom said this to them?).

In Overland Park it is illegal to picket funerals.I'm imagining a crowd with signs marching around the coffin chanting "burn his ass,burn his ass."

KENTUCKY

Any person who interferes with a public speech can be fined up to $500. What if it's a bad speech, can I not throw the tomatoes I brought?

It is illegal to sell dyed chicks unless you are selling more than 6 of them.
Are we talking baby chickens or live women? Either way I can't afford more than 6.

LOUISIANA

Fake boxing or wrestling matches are against the law.
Vince McMahon must hate Louisiana.

It is illegal to make insulting remarks to a contestant at a boxing match.
How else am I going to distract him? I got a lot of money riding on that match. It best not be a fake boxing match they are talking about or someone is in trouble.

Not to dampen the mood, but I just read an old post of Boogie Man is My Friend and she tells why her town enacted a similar law. Because of a 'reverend phelps', whose 'congregation' protests at soldier's funerals to protest against homosexuality.
I agree with that law in that case.
Thanks

I love weird laws :) These were funny. Makes you wonder what happened that they had to enforce these laws.

OMG I cannot get enough of these weird laws. I cannot pick a favorite one on this list I like them all.

I think it should be a general rule that you can not picket funerals.... Have you heard of this Westboro Baptist Church group?
