It's always fun to look at what folks have felt necessary to legislate all across the country and over many years. And unfortunately many of these laws stay on the books for what seems like forever. I looked at laws in 10 states earlier. Today, let's look at the next ten in alphabetical order.
Hawaii - You can not own a mongoose without a permit.
Idaho - You may not fish from a camel's back in the state. And in the state capitol of
Boise you may not fish from a giraffe's back. (Neither of these animals are
native to the state, so I would think you wouldn't see them just everywhere.
What would incline one to think of them as fishing platforms?)
Illinois - It is illegal to cut the tail off a horse.
Indiana - Baths may not be taken between the months of October and March.
Iowa - A man with a moustache may never kiss a woman in public.
Kansas - If two trains meet on the same track, neither shall proceed until the other has
passed. (This same law was enacted in several other states with almost the
exact same wording.)
Kentucky - It is illegal to remarry the same man four times. (No mention about a man's
ability to remarry the same woman multiple times.)
Louisiana - In New Orleans you can not tie an alligator to a fire hydrant (something I'm
sure the firemen are proud about).
Maine - You need a permit to have a pig scramble.
Maryland - It is illegal to take a lion to the movies.
There you have it. Now you know how to behave in a legal fashion in a few more of our states. So have fun, but take care and stay out of jail.
