photo by Jim Sneddon While false teeth are not used as widely today as they once were, there are still plenty of people out there who say, “Forget about it, just pull ‘em out and give me some fake ones.”  Aren’t there?  Sure, lots of people do that!  Otherwise why would there be so many […]

Well this is the one you’ve all been waiting for. Indecent Exposure! While not so much strange as it is funny that it had to be made into a law, it covers just about everything that deals with sex that you would think of outside of hugging and kissing. No intercourse, no sexual conduct, no […]

The boardwalk is always such a nice place to relax on a sunny day, but don’t get caught sleeping on a bench there, especially in Delaware. Not only is it illegal to sleep on the benches, it’s also illegal to pretend that you’re sleeping. The full text says “No person shall sleep, lie or occupy […]

Oregon sure had a lot of crazy laws, but this one struck me as the strangest. It is unlawful to be associated with a horse tripping event or a bear wrestling exhibition. Does that sound as unorthodox to you as it does to me? This isn’t even a part of some overarching “no animal cruelty” […]

So you’re living in Nebraska and you want to get married. Great. You and your fiancee are at least seventeen. Good so far. Oh, wait a second, one of you already has AIDS. Sorry, you can’t get married now, at least not in Nebraska. That’s right, if you have a venereal disease you can’t marry […]

Prison is obviously supposed to be horrible, we can all agree on that. You have almost no rights, certainly no privileges, and no escape.

“I’m just on my way to the 16th century fashion ball, officer.” This law is going to sound really ridiculous but has a good reason for being passed. In North Carolina, if you are at least 16 years old, you are not allowed to hold a meeting on private property wearing a mask or anything […]

Religion has been the most controversial topic across all of mankind’s history. There are so many varying views on all the deities that whole wars have been fought over and for them. This law is doing its best to try and lower the amount of religious  confrontations as much as possible. In Mississippi, it is […]

If you’re a pig breeder and plan on moving to Florida, which is strange enough, make sure you bring big cages. The reason to do so is that, animal cruelty being an important issue to Florida citizens, it is illegal to house a pregnant pig in an enclosure that prevents them from turning around freely. […]

Did you know that in Washington state it’s illegal to walk around in public if you are sick? More specifically, “Every person who shall wilfully expose himself to another, or any animal affected with any contagious or infectious disease, in any public place or thoroughfare, except upon his or its necessary removal in a manner […]
