Weird Laws: Part 15

NEW MEXICO

In Carrizozo it is forbidden for a female to appear unshaven in public. There must be a lot of streaking going on in that town.


In Deming persons may not spit on the steps of the opera house. Vomiting, urinating and defecating are perfectly okay.


In Deming hunting is prohibited in Mountain View Cemetery. Take your zombie hunting to another cemetery. 


NEW YORK


Women may go topless in public, providing it is not being used as a business. Dammit, I thought my topless car wash idea was genius. 


A fine of $25 can be levied for flirting. What is the fine for dressing up your penis as Abraham Lincoln and walking around naked?


It is against the law to throw a ball at someone's head for fun. What if I'm just dong it out of boredom?


NORTH CAROLINA


The mere possession of a lottery ticket is illegal and may result in a $2,000 fine. If I'm a winner do I still get to keep the money?


It is against the law to sing off key. Britney Spears better stay our of NC. 


Elephants may not be used to plow cotton fields. Just imagine how much they could fertilize the fields as they plow.


NORTH DAKOTA


It is illegal to lie down and fall asleep with your shoes on. So you are saying I need to sleep standing up if I want to keep my shoes on?


Beer and pretzels may not be served at the same time in any bar or restaurant. Beer and pretzels are like coke and pop rocks to them. 


It is illegal to shoot an Indian on horseback, provided you are in a covered wagon. This law only applies if you are playing the game Oregon Trail.

one can go topless in good ole Ontario also...although it is a little chilly right now. You would love the old TV show from canada I think it was called "This is the Law"-always watched it as a child. Yes I was that nerdy

So if I have pretzels with my beer I'm breaking the law? Cool.
And there are topless women out in public in New York???? And it's all right??

lmao@ the Oregon Trail reference!

I know a lot of people in North Dakota who should have been arrested when they passed out drunk in their shoes! I'm totally ratting them out.

My question is...what would the police do if you called the cops on a drunk friend...I may have to travel to North Dakota and give it a try! ;)

I'm confused. I can walk around topless in NY but I can't flirt while doing so? What's the point?

Just a little more proof that earthlings are stupid!

Without stupid laws like these we wouldn't have your clever posts to admire, so there's one good thing about them.

Weird stuff, dude. Here is one from the Philippines where I am now traveling:

Philippines Law: It is against the law to be cremated with a living creature in a pocket of your clothing.

Oh, so what are the authorities going to do - fine the dead guy 2,500 pesos and lock him up?

LOVE THIS! I can't even pick one because they are all funny.

My blog is funny and sarcastic...I think you and I are going to get along great!

PLEASE don't send Fran or Justin to my house.
