50 Stupid Laws From 50 States
Laws are made to function a seemingly healthy community in a stable and disciplined fashion. However, when some of those laws become increasingly absurd, that you giggle your way through even reading them, one wonders what the law makers were thinking while coming up with such classical dumbness. Here we have gathered for you at least one dumb law from a state each.
Why would you have an ice cream cone in your back pocket in the first place?
Isn't it highly unlikely for the human eye to view a moose from an airplane? Nevertheless, expect your eyes to be scooped out if you break this law!
Perhaps manufacturing original cocaine is no longer illegal. The creator of this law might just be on crack.
Taping your dog's mouth for this one might not get you a fine. How can one stop dogs from barking after a specific time?
Do the law makers expect moving vehicles to be without drivers?
How can one challenge an officer while on the 'go' is a mystery! This law is against the law of 'motion' in physics for sure!
Walking backwards after sunset may well be a believable myth. Only a complete retard would walk backwards continuously.
Intoxication may lead to over enjoyment, which may lead to one dancing, how expression of joy is illegal here, is beyond the logical mind.
This rule really means for one to shower with their clothes on, and if not done so, someone might just barge in the bathroom and fine you stark naked! This is absolutely mind boggling.
Duh! As the members of the state assembly, may not be driving at that time and be sitting in the assembly that is in session.
So those not-so rich blokes who cannot afford a boat, have to pay a fine for being poor?
Simply, if you are having a rotten day, some massive grievance just struck you, just keep smiling! No matter what!
If the English language is not to be spoken in the state of Illinois, a state of a nation whose official language is English, then what is to be spoken? Gibberish, perhaps!
Convenient law for the not-so hygienic!
This law is a simple example of discrimination against a man with a moustache against a clean shaven one.
Sigh! Since when were pedestrians an equivalent to vehicles? Tail lights on human beings? The must be kidding when creating this law!
It won't come as the slightest surprise if this one was formed somewhere in the 17th century and they forgot to amend it, considering we are living in 2010!
A great law for the vengeful people, but this one being considered as a serious statute is rather comical.
You don't say! Are not all doors tightly jammed and the risk of getting out might as well land you on the seventh heaven?
It is probably illegal to take a cannibal simply anywhere, not just the movies, for heaven sake!
They actually made this a statute! Uproarious!
This one would have the feminists going riotous.
Sure! The law makers would step onto your private property, have you checked for sleeping naked and charge you if found guilty while you are stripped!
So perhaps being a parent to one illegitimate child is legal then!
This is law is pretty much going against the Bill of Rights, tarnishing a single, very happy man's life, pushing him for marriage or to pay taxes, quite the same torture in a varying degree!
Murder is legal through this law!
But thy Lord is forgiving, thee humans!
This law simply breaks two laws; firstly it is fine for someone to 'shoot' your dog and secondly, it is totally 'legal' for you to hand that person to death! Outrageous!
Dishwashing, washing machine, irons, blenders, microwave ovens etc, are not to be used on a Sunday, else you will be charged for committing a felony! Intriguing really!
Why would a murderer feel the need to wear a bullet-proof vest? Baffling!
Idiots should not be elected either!
No way! As if jumping off the building may not result in death, and if it doesn't, the law offers its generous help by giving you a death sentence!
Supreme lavishness or complete absurdity of a law such as this is a debatable question!
This act is considered as a felony is just so completely incongruous.
They should amend this law and add Christmas holidays in exclusion list to make it more stupid.
What kind of a silly person would indulge in making faces at a dog, and what kind of a law maker would think of creating this law?
Even if a snake seems to be remotely threatening to you, you still will be charged with a federal felony of trying to protect yourself from a snake!
Of course dynamite should not be used to catch fish, for you won't catch the fish, you might just find nothing of the fish. Sense so common that everyone has it, yet it's a prescribed statute!
What a super idiotic excuse of getting out of a commitment made for a lifetime.
This law can not be more dumb! How can a horse possibly even fit in a bathtub? Moreover, why would you want to keep a horse in a bathtub!!
Murder is made legal!
Picking up trash is a capital offense!
As if the formula for making beer is only in the Encyclopedia. How silly to ban a treasure of information!
So a speeding car has to give way to a bird. Birds travel via roads is simply a marvel!
Do the law makers seriously check every household member to have bathed every Saturday night?
Is that even a crime? Making it a crime should be a crime!
Common cold maybe infectious but it's not as deadly as STD's! The person who made this statute was probably really ticked off at getting the common cold from bystanders!
It could just not get more absurd than this!
Ever heard of rail diversion tracks? Modern modes of commuting allow two trains to divide their tracks if they pass one another. On the other hand, obviously if that was not a possibility, no one would want a collision!
It's like saying that if someone is comfortable with the main door of their home open, is going to be charged for committing the freedom of doing such an act.
