Wow, Who knew These Laws Really Did Exist


It what can only be described as, “you have got to be kidding”, find your state and see what laws you never thought possible still exist.

Don’t forget the top 25.

I am kinda partial to …

Alabama, It is legal to drive the wrong way down a one-way street if you have a lantern attached to the front of your automobile. (Oh I am sure the auto insurance industry loves this one.)

From the Garden State of NJ, It is against the law for a man to knit during the fishing season. (Which begs the question, knitting?)

NH, You cannot sell the clothes you are wearing to pay off a gambling debt. (I’ll have to remember this the next time I am playing Hold Em in the Granite state.)

From Vacationland in Maine, Shotguns are required to be taken to church in the event of a Native American attack. (Ayah, Damn strait)

And finally from the Sunshine state. In FL Having sexual relations with a porcupine is illegal. (OK, Tomahawk this is just wrong.)
