          In Kansas it is illegal to hunt a whale from a moving vehicle...

          In Austin, TX it is illegal to spit on the side walk from 1PM to 3 PM. ( I think that this one is from the day when the well dress Austin ladies used to "stroll" the sidewalks so that they could see and be seen by the envious other ladies..)

          In South Carolina any man and woman who check in to a motel or hotel as Mr and Mrs are then legally married....

          In Texas if you are leaving your home county and will be returning after dark it is legal to carry a pistol in your saddle bags...

          I forget what state this one is from but there is a old law on the books that says that if you are driving a new fangled automobile; a man must proceed you carrying a red flag so that the horses are not spooked and run away with the buggies and wagons...

          In Old Tombstone Arizona any female "entertainer" must be licensed and registered with the township...

          I don't know if this was a law or not but my great Grandfather used to tell about a town in Freestone County Texas just after the turn of the last century that had an ordinance that Chinamen, Blacks, Indians and horses could not drink in the bars... I guess in the early 1900 they had problems with drunken horses in bars.... You know how they are they get all liquored up and hit on the dance hall girls....

          Thankful for the blessing from the Creator in my life!!!!

          Life should not be measured by the number of things that we aquire on our journey but by the number of lives that we touch along that road.

            In Maine, it's illegal to step out of a plane in flight.

            In Vermont, women have to obtain written permission from their husbands before wearing false teeth.

            In Indiana, per statute IC 35-45-4-1, section 1b, it's illegal for a man to be...um...'visibly aroused'...in public, even if he's covered up.

            WTF?

                Ohhh man im so takin someone to S.C and checkin in like so

                1st round of points have been given out.
                Keep it up!

                Very good postys so far.




                An old statute in Kentucky states that men who push their wives out of bed for inflicting their cold toes on them can be fined or jailed for a week. YEAH! TAKE THAT SUCKAH I WILL WARM MY TOES ON YOUR BOOTY!



                A 100-year-old law in Willowdale, Oregon makes it illegal to swear during sex. DAngit! There goes my foreplay

                An odd law in Minnesota makes it illegal to hang male and female underwear on the same washing line.
                CUz um thats how babies are made!

                In Melbourne, Australia it is illegal for men to parade in strapless dresses - but they are allowed to cross-dress in anything with sleeves.
                NO HALTER TOP FOR YOU!!!!

                An old law in Russia allows a police officer to "beat a peeping tom soundly." In Texas, two categories of men are exempt from peeping tom charges: men over 50 and men with only one eye. Well there yah go panty chasers of the board, MOVE TO TEXAS!


                A pregnant woman can urinate anywhere she wishes, including a policeman's helmet, according to a London local by-law. Hehehe who wants to try that one out

                But in Vermont, women require their husbands permission to wear false teeth. Cuz Gumming fellatio is so much better?


                In Virginia, horses of more than one year old are prohibited in a place of worship. Sooo baptize them when they are colts ir they will BURN IN HELL!!!

                And to contrast the Kansas rule.......In Tennessee, shooting any game other than whales from a moving automobile is against the law.

                In Normal, Oklahoma you could be sent to prison for "making an ugly face at a dog." So Dont be sneerin at my puppy dawg suckahs!




                P.S If anyone should want to point me i would not take offense

                  Here's one of the strangest laws I ever heard of. I don't think I can say it outright, so I'll try to be a little delicate.

                  In Texas, until it was struck down by the courts a year or so ago, it was illegal to own a d**** (marital aid, shaped like a certain part of the male anatomy), unless - and here's the fun part - unless you had a PRESCRIPTION from an M.D.!

                  I'd like to be a fly on the wall during that consultation with the doc!

                  And, I wonder if you could take that prescription to Walgreens to get it filled?!

                      There are more collect calls on Father's Day than any other day of the year

                      Every day more money is printed for Monopoly than for the US Treasury

                      Only first lady to carry a loaded revolver: Eleanor Roosevelt

                      An eagle can kill a young deer and fly away with it

                      Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair

                      The name Wendy was made up for the book Peter Pan. There was never a recorded Wendy before.

                      The first product Motorola started to develop was a record player for automobiles. At that time, the most known player on the market was Victrola, so the called themselves Motorola.

                      The very first bomb dropped by the Allies on Berlin in World War II killed the only elephant in the Berlin Zoo.

                      "Don't hold your breath."
                      Ever say that? Sure you do. Any guesses what you're saying? The original phrase is: "Hold your breath, save it for your porridge." Meaning, stop talking, your breath is better used to cool you porridge.

                      Sniper- During the 19th century, British soldiers in India tested their marksmanship by hunting a small elusive bird called a Snipe. Individuals who were adept at actually hitting sniper were referred to as "Snipers".

                        Ah, yes. Good ol' Dr. Flynt. I was first introduced to him when I was a young teenager and was visiting my brother at college and was staying at his frat house. The kindly frat brothers put me up in a room where they kept their copies (stacks and stacks) of Dr. Flynt's er.....medical journals.

                        It was a "learning experience" to say the least!

                        To keep it on topic, I don't know if it is still the law or not, but when I was growing up in Oklahoma liquor stores were very heavily regulated. If the sign identified them as a liquor store, the lettering on their signs couldn't be more than a couple inches tall. So...all the liquor stores had yellow signs with unreadable letters. It made the stores stand out like a sore thumb.

                        One store in Tulsa got around it. In huge, huge letters on the side of their store was written:

                        EGAREVEB MART!

                        The state or city tried to shut them down, but couldn't.

                        (If anyone couldn't figure it out, read the first word backwards)
