Weird Laws: Part 17


Weird laws of the United States of America.

Rhode Island

No one may bite off another's leg.  What are zombies to do then?

It is considered an offense to throw pickle juice on a trolley. A little unknown fact: Trolleys are allergic to pickle juice.

Any marriage where either of the parties is an idiot or a lunatic is null and void. So many Reality TV Stars can't get married in Rhode Island.

South Carolina

Every adult male must bring a rifle to church on Sunday in order to ward off Indian attacks. Because every Indian hates church.

It is a capital offense to inadvertently kill someone while attempting suicide. Sorry judge, I was trying to hang myself and I accidentally shot Steve in the face.

A person must be eighteen years old to play a pinball machine. Beating the high score earns you a carton of cigarettes. 

South Dakota

It is illegal to lie down and fall asleep in a cheese factory. The mice will take you away and hold you hostage for a block of cheddar.

No horses are allowed into Fountain Inn unless they are wearing pants. How do you figure out a horse's pants size?

If there are more than 5 Native Americans on your property you man shoot them. This law also applies to Snookis, Biebers, and Kardashians. 

Tennessee

Student may not hold hands while at school. That is how cooties get spread around.

It is a crime to share your Netflix password. How else is grandma going to catch up on Breaking Bad?

Giving and receiving oral sex is still prohibited by law. Hence the nickname, The Hand Job State.

Most of those are weird because they are old, but the NetFlix one?
And what about relish juice? Is that illegal as well?

That last Rhode Island law can't be real. In every marriage, there's at least one idiot or lunatic.

You just know some of these laws got on the books because one person had a bad experience. Too funny! You really are the cheese.

Andrea said...

That one seems to leave the door open for falling asleep in a chair or propped up against the wall!

Mark said...

I hope the word "Still" is in the official oral sex law. It would mean they know they should change it but they won't.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

There must be some sharp dressed horses in S Dakota.

Ms. A said...

I'm sure their jails are full of lawbreakers.

Chuck said...

Wow, who would have thought that "69" in Tennessee would get you time in the pokey!!

Ruth said...

What happens if the Fountain Inn closes down? It would make that law kinda stupid and pointless, wouldn't it?

Addman said...

All these laws seem perfectly sensible to me, especially the horse pants one. Who wants a big floppy horse cock flapping around everywhere? No thanks.

Birgit said...

Maybe that is why the horse has to wear pants especially in Tennessee

Baby Sister said...

Seriously? I always wonder what in the world happened to make these laws become laws...

Pat Tillett said...

You mean a horse wearing a dress couldn't get in?

Kathy said...
