I found out some funny laws in certain states (of the USA, of course). I found out tht in my home state of Minnesota it is illegal to cross the Minnesota-Wisconsin border while wearing a duck on your head. In New York a man can be fined 25$ for flirting with women (second offense he'll have to appear in court wearing a horse blind)! In New Jersey it is against the law to wear a bullet-proof vest while committing murder In Wisconsin you need a license to make cheese. And of course it is illegal to pronounce Arkansas in Arkansas. I know of at least a dozen others but I think of what states they come from. I could probably search the internet for more but this is more fun. So, what other obscure state laws have you heard of?

here in North Carolina it's essentially illegal to have costume parties. originally intended to break up the KKK, though, so I don't really care.

Are most of these true?


I highly doubt it.

My defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious.

Most, if not all of these laws are either from olden times like during the 1800 and early 1900s and/or taken out of context.

For example,

"In Tucson, it is illegal for women to wear pants."

Probably written in a time when it was first settled and the Bible was the law. According to the Bible women are not supposed to dress like men. Law writers wrote it, it never got removed. No one cares anymore and it's not enforced.

"In Wisconsin you need a license to make cheese."

Do you really want any guy on the street making you you're dairy products?

Do you not think these are a little different? How can you confuse having ice cream in your pocket with the infinitely more difficult act of reverse-unicycle-riding-during ice-cream-consumption?
