  • There are so many, but the only one I can think of right now is one that's not really an enforced law. It's one of those old, old laws that are still on the books or whatever, but no one does it. The law is that it's still legal to beat your wife, so long as it's on the courthouse steps on Sunday with a stick no bigger than your thumb. I think that's in a few states, though. I'm in VA.

  • i live in indy, and i found out that you can tie a rope to the bumper and tie it to a post. it says in the law books you have to tie up your transportation. it's talking about the horse and buggies out here. it would be funny to see someone do that to a car. lol

  • I'm in PA... Here are some good ones...

    "You may not catch a fish by any body part except the mouth."
    "Dynamite is not to be used to catch fish."
    "Ministers are forbidden from performing marriages when either the bride or groom is drunk."
    "A person is not eligible to become Governor if he/she has participated in a duel."
    "You may not sing in the bathtub."

    And this is my favorite Stupid Law!
    "It is contrary to Pennsylvania law to discharge a gun, cannon, revolver or other explosive weapon at a wedding."

  • GA:
    The term "sadomasochistic abuse" is defined so broadly, that it could possibly be applied to a person handcuffing another in a clown suit.

    It is illegal to use profanity in front of a dead body which lies in a funeral home or a coroner's office.

    And... donkeys may not be kept in bathtubs.
