You Have the Right to Remain Silent

This post is based heavily on this post http://www.divinecaroline.com/22323/99603-i-m-arrest-what-fifty-bizarre

During J's Bar studying, he has come across some very complicated and detailed laws, but this post has nothing to do with that!  He also found some funny laws too, so I thought I would share.

In Connecticut, a pickle cannot actually be a pickle unless it bounces.

In Florida, if you tie an elephant to a parking meter, you must pay the same parking fee as you would for a vehicle.

In Indiana, the value of pi is 4, and not 3.1415. (I bet they have funny looking circles!  stupid math joke :)

In Michigan, a woman may not cut her own hair without her husband’s permission.

In Montana, it’s a felony for a wife to open her husband’s mail.
In New York, while riding in an elevator, you must talk to no one, fold your hands, and look toward the door.

In South Carolina, if a man promises to marry an unmarried woman, he is required by law to keep his promise.

 
In Washington, it’s illegal to pretend that one’s parents are wealthy.

In West Virginia, if you make fun of someone who does not accept a challenge, you risk a six-month prison sentence.

In Wisconsin, unless a customer specifically requests it, margarine may not be substituted for butter in a restaurant.

In Wyoming, unless you have an official permit, you may not take a picture of a rabbit from January to April.

Good news Tennesseans, our silly law posted is it is strictly forbidden to sell hollow logs, I think I am safe on that one!



Full of useless trivia today :)
