Most of the laws formulated by the relevant authorities are designed to ensure safety of the citizens of a certain county, city, region, state or a country. There are quite often laws, such as the dumb laws in Indiana, that makes one wonder why would anyone have to take the pains to formulate nonsensical laws such as these. Such laws compels us to think what would the legislators had been thinking while passing such ridiculous laws. Louisiana is home to some plain stupid, silly, funny, entertaining and dumb laws that you may not have heard of. Let’s have a look at them!
1 – No Food to be Thrown in a Drive-in Movie Theatre!
Last night a drive-in movie theatre was was robbed of a $1,000. The thieves took one large bag of popcorn, a combo meal and a box of milk duds! But they took care not to throw any of these items on the ground, lest they be apprehended!
2 – Parental Guidance for Foosball!
Yes kids! You heard it right! Minors may not go to businesses with coin-operated foosball machines unless accompanied by an adult. At least, it will save you the humiliation of scoring own goals again and again.
3 – You can’t Hurl Insults at Your Opponent at a Boxing Match!
Well, everyone has a plan till they get punched in the mouth! Even if you do end up beaten a lot by your opponent, it’s common courtesy and also the law not to mock your opponent. For every punch you get in your face, thanking your opponent would be the way to go, we presume!
4 – No Urinating in City’s Water Supply!
If you ever planned to urinate in the city’s water supply, then you better drop it as soon as possible. If you do end up urinating, you could possibly land in jail for 20 years. Guys, no urinating in city’s water supply. What’s the purpose of loads of restrooms sprinkled all over Louisiana?
5 – Nobody is allowed to Steal Crawfish!
I heard you like shellfish! So, we put a shrimp in your crawfish and in your lobster so you can fish while you fish! Do not even think of stealing crawfish! That can have you incarcerated for ten years or fined for just about three grands!
6 – No one Steals an Alligator!
Well, stealing an alligator, quite remarkably, could prove to be far less costly than stealing crawfish. You could just end up in jail for a couple of years and fine for about one grand only. That’s fairly reasonable, ain’t it? See ya later alligator!
7 – Don’t Surprise your Friend with the Pizza Delivery!
It is a $500 fine or six months of prison to instruct a pizza delivery man to deliver a pizza to your friend without them knowing. No surprises, folks! Actually, every pizza is a personal pizza if you try hard and believe in yourself!
8 – Abortion Advertising is Illegal!
If you ever tried to go down this path in Louisiana, you could end up in jail for no less than a year or a fine of about $5,000 could be slapped on you!
9 – Unlawful to Use a Laser on Police Officers!
That goes on to imply that you could use a laser on any human being or even an animal other than a police office for that matter! So, a word of advice for all the cats and dogs out there: you can’t catch that red dot!
10 – Prisoners! Please Don’t Hurt Yourselves!
There’s a guard at the concentration camp and he tells one of the prisoners, I will let you go if you guess which one of my eyes is made of glass. The left one, the prisoner replies, “because I thought I saw a flicker of humanity in that eye!”. Yes, that’s a joke! But hey prisoners! Don’t maim yourself! Else you’ll have to stay incarcerated for a couple more years!
