In Vermont, it is illegal to whistle under water.......there is a sign posted at the lake near my uncles house. Lol

In Round Rock, TX it is legal to "shoot an Indian on a bridge." Both politically incorrect and I'm pretty sure you would still get charged with murder. Lol

I don't know all of it but there is a legend that a whale swam through an underground passage and came up in the salt lake.

Quoting EWJensen: Ya I know right. I have never heard the legend.

Quoting ditsyjo: As if there are whales there... Though there is a legend that might explain it

Quoting EWJensen: In Utah it is illegal to hunt whale.
