Thread: Dumb State, County, and City/Town Laws

    Talking Dumb State, County, and City/Town Laws

    If you like a good laugh, just select your state and enjoy! Whole time I was growing up in Baltimore I never knew it was against a city ordinance to take a lion to the movies. Apparently, not even if it's an MGM production.

    Dumb Laws in Maryland. Crazy Maryland Laws. We have weird laws, strange laws, and just plain crazy laws!

    Oh, and there's some international laws on the site, too!

    In Michigan, its illegal to swear in front of women and children.

    Interestingly enough, a guy was prosecuted for that a few years ago. His canoe flipped while on a river, and he cussed out the H2O while a family was camping.

    It is against the law for a monster to enter the corporate limits of Urbana, Illinois. NO :pika:

    Joliet: Town fathers, reflecting the pet peeve of hearing their town’s name mispronounced ‘Jolly-ETTE’ when all local folk know it’s pronounced ‘Joe-lee-ETTE’, made pronouncing it Jolly-ette a misdemeanor, punishable by a $5 fine.

    Personally I love the Joliet law and hope that it is ruthlessly enforced.

    I found one in my state that said 'Tattooing and body piercing is illegal'. If that is true...I should be arrested for having my lip pierced...

    Heres some

    In Calgary Alberta, there is still a by-law that requires businesses within the city to provide rails for tying up horses.

    Wetaskiwin, Alberta from 1917: "It's against the law to tie a male horse next to a female horse on Main Street."

    Now for some provincial laws

    Wooden logs may not be painted.

    It is illegal to set fire to the wooden leg of a wooden legged man

    You may never use dice to play craps.

    Reading through it a bit, one thing that keeps popping up is that people have to buy Television Licenses in some countries, so the public channels can stay funded.

    Pay for what you use, I suppose.

    Leave it to Virginia to have a lot of sex laws.

    It is illegal to have sex with the lights on. They must be off, and the heterosexual couple must be married and in the missionary position.

    Oral and anal sex is illegal.

    We used to have Blue Laws, making it illegal for stores to be open on Sundays. Most of those have been repealed.

    I can't tell you how many of the sex laws I have broken...haha... Virginia is for idiots.

    "No cows may be driven down the roadway between 10 AM and 7 PM unless there is prior approval from the Commissioner of Police."

    That's just good sense.

    "Since 1313, MPs are not allowed to don armor in Parliament."

    Again good sense, or at least at the time.

    "Those wishing to purchase a television must also buy a license."

    Well duh.

    "A bed may not be hung out of a window."

    Again good sense, and I'd like to meet the person who hung his bed out of a window and prompted this law.

    "It is illegal to leave baggage unattended."

    "Picking up abandoned baggage is an act of terrorism."

    Again good sense, considering.

    I'm disappointed, they weren't dumb.
