10 Dumb Laws in Georgia that are Mind Boggling

10 Dumb Laws in Georgia that are Mind Boggling

You will be shaking your head in disbelief, but the state of Georgia does have many weird and dumb laws. We know every state has their own set of crazy laws still in place. Florida was our last stop. After some digging, we’ve unearthed some of the silliest, stupidest and dumbest laws that are still part of the law books in Georgia.

1 – No Private Lottery Allowed!

01

While Georgia operates its own state lottery, it “protects” its citizens by making it illegal to promote a private lottery. Anyways, here’s a fun fact: the chances of you dying on the way to get your lottery tickets are greater than your chances of winning!

2 – You Can’t Beat Someone in Undergarments!

02

Well, by simple implication, if you try to beat someone in undergarments, you’ll be guilty of a misdemeanor of a high and aggravated nature. Sounds like trouble for the opponents of all the superheroes out there from the comic world! They almost invariably are dressed in bizarre costumes and virtually undergarments!

3 – No Late Night Live Entertainment, Folks!

3

If you want to read your favorite book in public to your friends, do it before 2:45 am! And no late night dancing on the dance floors too!

4 – No Booze Alongside Massage!

4

We presume the legislators must have conspired with the physicians while formulating this law. Nevertheless, we’d rather get a massage and get the problem rubbed out than have booze and just feel drunk out!

5 – No Liquor for Less than $1

05

It is illegal to sell two beers at once for a fixed price. We hope you don’t drink alcohol because that would make you alcoholic. We would suggest you to try out distilled spirits to become SPIRITUAL!

6 – Going out of Business? Get a License!

06

You need to get a license for going-out-of-business-sale! We wish it will keep you from going out of business for some time!

Law: https://www.municode.com/library/ga/athens-clarke_county/codes/code_of_ordinances?nodeId=PTIIICOOR_TIT6LIBURE_CH6-2GO-BSAFISAET_S6-2-3LIRE

7 – No Goldfish for a Game of Bingo!

7

Goldfish may not be given away to entice someone to enter a game of bingo. Why do people write “B4” instead of “Before”? I mean we speak “English” not “Bingo”!

Law: https://www.municode.com/library/ga/athens-clarke_county/codes/code_of_ordinances?nodeId=PTIIICOOR_TIT4PUHE_CH4-1ANCO_ART2DUPRRECOAN_S4-1-9ANGI

8 – No Roaming Around for Mules

08

Owners of mules may not allow their animal to roam around unsupervised. Perhaps, mules don’t like people laughing. You see, they get the crazy idea that people are laughing at them!

Law: https://www.municode.com/library/ga/athens-clarke_county/codes/code_of_ordinances?nodeId=PTIIICOOR_TIT4PUHE_CH4-1ANCO_ART2DUPRRECOAN_S4-1-5LIRULA

9 – No Pinball after 11 in the Night!

09

Persons under the age of 16 may not play pinball after 11:00 pm. Aaahhh the feeling that you get when you are about to beat your high score in pinball and the clock ticks 11:00 pm!

Law: https://www.municode.com/library/ga/athens-clarke_county/codes/code_of_ordinances?nodeId=PTIIICOOR_TIT3PUSA_CH3-8AMDE_S3-8-3AGTIRE

10 – No Disturbance at a Fair!

10

You dare not make a disturbing sound at a fair, else you’ll be in great trouble! Better mind you own business!
