S/O of Dry County Question ... Blue/Dumb Laws

Some of the comments in the "dry county thread" reminded me of the dumb laws states still have on the books. These are perfect examples of how states in our free country exercises their rights to pass laws. 

NORTH CAROLINA
*No one may be a professional fortune-teller, and if one wishes to pursue the practice as an amateur, it must be practiced in a school or church.

*While having sex, you must stay in the missionary position and have the shades pulled.

*If a man and a woman who aren’t married go to a hotel/motel and register themselves as married then, according to state law, they are legally married. 

CALIFORNIA:
*Sunshine is guaranteed to the masses.

*Women may not wear high heels while in the city limits.

*Detonating a nuclear device within the city limits results in a $500 fine

MINNESOTA:
* It is illegal to sleep naked.

*Hamburgers may not be eaten on Sundays.

*Citizens may not enter Wisconsin with a chicken on their head.

TEXAS:
*One must acknowledge a supreme being before being able to hold public office.

*Up to a felony charge can be levied for promoting the use of, or owning more than six dildos.

*Obnoxious odors may not be emitted while in an elevator.

NEW YORK:
*It is illegal for a woman to be on the street wearing “body hugging clothing”.

*The penalty for jumping off a building is death.

*Slippers are not to be worn after 10:00 PM.

To make this a debatable  question, what do you think of these laws?
