Top 10 WTF? US Sex Laws


Funny US Laws

However, this is not the only stupid american law that exists. there are countless laws that … to put it mildly, are really, really stupid. Some of them are so outdated that it is amazing they are still in the books.

I have gathered a few nice examples here:

  1. ALABAMA – Putting salt on a railroad track may be punishable by death.
  2. CALIFORNIA – In L.A. it is against the law to complain through the mail that a hotel has cockroaches, even if it is true.
  3. FLORIDA – A special law prohibits unmarried women (whether single, divorced or widowed) from parachuting on Sunday or she shall risk arrest, fine, and/or jailing.
  4. FLORIDA – If an elephant is left tied to a parking meter, the parking fee has to be paid just as it would for a vehicle.
  5. IDAHO – It is illegal for a man to give his sweetheart a box of candy weighing less than fifty pounds.
  6. IDAHO – Fishing from the back of any animal is illegal.
  7. KENTUCKY – Anyone who has been drinking is “sober” until he or she”cannot hold onto the ground.”
  8. KENTUCKY – “No female shall appear in a bathing suit on any highway within this state unless she be escorted by at least two officers or unless she be armed with a club.”
    An amendment to the above legislation: “The provisions of this statute shall not apply to females weighing less than 90 pounds nor exceeding 200 pounds, nor shall it apply to female horses.”
  9. MARYLAND – In Baltimore its illegal to take a lion to the movies.
  10. NEBRASKA – A parent can be arrested if his child cannot hold back a burp during a church service.
