We have all heard of some pretty silly laws. Here are twenty-five of the
craziest I have ever heard of. (With the exception of #25, I think it is an
unwritten law everywhere…)
- In Bozeman, Montana, a law prohibits all sexual activity from the front yard of a home after sundown.
- 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.
