    Talking dumb laws (humor)


    here's a sampling from my state.
    It is against the law to throw a ball at someone's head for fun.

    A license must be purchased before hanging clothes on a clothesline.

    The penalty for jumping off a building is death.

    Citizens may not greet each other by "putting one's thumb to the nose and wiggling the fingers".

    It is illegal for a woman to be on the street wearing "body hugging clothing."

    Women may go topless in public, providing it is not being used as a business.
    i have no problem at all with this last one..

    Some interesting California laws (some are only localized laws):

    - It is a misdemeanor to shoot at any kind of game from a moving vehicle, unless the target is a whale.
    - No vehicle without a driver may exceed 60 miles per hour.
    - You are not permitted to wear cowboy boots unless you already own at least two cows. (Blythe)
    - Detonating a nuclear device within the city limits results in a $500 fine. (Chico)
    - One may not use one's own restroom if the window is open. (Dana Point)
    - It is illegal to drive more than two thousand sheep down Hollywood Boulevard at one time. (Hollywood)
    - Toads may not be licked. (LA)
    - It is illegal to walk a camel down Palm Canyon Drive between the hours of four and six PM. (Palm Springs)

    And my favorite:

    - Motor vehicles may not drive on city streets unless a man with a lantern is wallking ahead of it. (Redlands)
