I was reading an article about strange laws, some of them truly bizarre, such as the one in Montana that prohibits having an unchaperoned sheep in the cab of your truck. Oddly enough, they don’t have any laws against unchaperoned goats. In Eureka Nev., it’s illegal for a man with a moustache to kiss a woman. It is however (I assume) perfectly legal for a woman with a moustache to kiss a man.
Senseless laws such as these exist in every state, remnants from distant administrations that obviously had one too many drinks at a weekend office party. For instance, you can’t shoot rabbits from a motorboat in Kansas. You can’t put graffiti on someone else’s cow in Texas. You can’t sleep in an outhouse in Washington without the owner’s permission. In Cleveland, Ohio, it’s illegal to catch mice without a hunting license.
It does make you wonder though - “Am I breaking some ancient law if I walk my dog on a cloudy Tuesday? Can I wear a green hat in a supermarket?”
