ridiculous laws

This is funny. I love the occasional joke FYM thread. Enjoy!

Sure, you know you're going to get a ticket for driving over the speed limit or a fine for littering. I'll bet you didn't know though that in Wyoming it is illegal for women to stand within five feet of a bar while drinking, or that in in Richmond, VA it is illegal to flip a coin in any eating establishment to determine who buys a cup of coffee. The law may not be a laughing matter, but these silly enactments will tickle your funny bone.
Alabama: It's illegal to wear a fake mustache that causes laughter in church.
Florida: Men may not be seen publicly in any kind of strapless gown.
Georgia: It's illegal to change the clothes on a storefront mannequin unless the shades are down.
Kentucky: One may not dye a duckling blue and offer it for sale unless more than six are for sale at once.
Lousiana: It's illegal to rob a bank and then shoot at the bank teller with a water pistol.
Mississippi: It is illegal to teach others what polygamy is.
North Carolina: It's illegal to sing off key.
South Carolina: If a man promises to marry an unmarried woman, by law it must take place.
Tennessee: It's illegal to use a lasso to catch a fish.
Other States:
New Mexico: it's illegal for a woman to ride a horse on a public street with a kimono on.
Illinois: it's illegal to take a French poodle to the opera.
California: Sunshine is guaranteed to the masses.
Nebraska: If a child burps during church, the parent may be arrested.

I'm going to kidnap Bruce and take him to South Carolina-it doesn't say anything about the guy already being married

Either that or be damned careful about your promises.

We have a California version of this law.

Our law requires the man to truly respect the woman in the morning.
