8 Dumb Laws in Indiana that Defy Common Sense

8 Dumb Laws in Indiana that Defy Common Sense

We’ve had some outright weird and bizarre laws in our remarkable series of dumb laws in each state of America. Illinois had its own share of dumb laws of the sorts which allowed kids to have alcohol with their parents (you must be kidding? Right?). Indiana takes the cake with a few of these plain stupid and dumb laws that defy common sense! Let’s get rolling then!

1 – Glue Sniffing is Illegal!

1

We hope the President elect does not make an itinerary to Indiana soon enough. The social media went on a rampage when Donald Trump appeared to have a very bad case of sniffles as he appeared on stage at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. We sincerely hope he did not prepare for the debate night as portrayed in the above image!

2 – You Can’t Catch a Fish with Bare Hands!

2

Give a man a fish and he will eat it for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will sit in his boat and drink all day! Hey, we wonder what the bears will be up to after this law. They might have to resort to sticks!

3 – Liquor Stores Not to Sell Cold Soft Drinks!

3

Hey, if liquor stores are not allowed to sell cold soft drinks then let us tell you the recipe for iced coffee at least: Have kids; make coffee; forget you made coffee; and drink it cold! It can’t get simpler than that!

4 – Pray & Stop Paying Your Dependent’s Medical Bill!

4

You can get out of paying for a dependent’s medical care by praying for him/her. If you are one of those who want to help but do not want to feel bad for not helping, then this law is certainly for you!

5 – You Can’t Ride a Horse at a Speed in Excess of 10 mph!

5

It seems as if residents of Marion County, Indianapolis have speedometers installed on the back of their horses. That’s called horsepower, folks!

6 – No Missiles to be Aimed at Birds!

6

Well people, you may only throw a stone or a missile at a bird in self-defense. No more killing two birds with one stone!

7 – No Rags on Sundays!

7

Roses are red, violets are blue…does this rag smell like chloroform to you? Toilet paper is a commodity that needs to be purchased. What if you had like a rag and you just washed it! Hey, hold on! But that won’t be allowed in Indiana on Sundays, right?

8 – You Can’t Throw Your Computer Across the Street!

8

Here’s how you can quickly get your computers fixed: Reboot! If it didn’t solve the issue, format your hard drive and reinstall windows! Lose all your files and keep quiet! No, you can’t throw your computer out of the window across the street in Indiana.
