It seems that people not only need to create silly laws for all the humans, but man’s best friend, the dog, apparently needs a host of legal restraints to keep them in line as well. Here are some stupid dog laws along with some really cute pictures of dogs being ashamed and admitting of their […]

Is it really illegal to buy or sell blue lightbulbs in Arkansas? After a considerable amount of time on the telephone, I’m afraid the answer I have to give is…I dunno.  It may be true, in some dusty old tome in an Arkansas law firm some where, but if it is nobody is talking.  I […]

As you’ve probably already guessed, I get a lot of these laws from websites dedicated to listing crazy and weird laws from different states and countries.  And, as you can probably imagine, there is no “truth checker” that automatically tells me whether or not the law is real.  So, that’s my new mission with this […]

When one comes across a strange and mind-boggling law, the first question that usually gets asked is “Why did this ever become a law?!”.  More often than not, the laws that spur these kinds of reactions are incredibly odd.  A good example of this is a law that says that camel-hunting is not lawful in […]

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. Some people might consider dying as a better option than to continue living in the can. The only thing is, if you’re a prisoner in Louisiana and you inflict any harm […]
