This time I am doing TWO states because, believe it or not, there weren't as many dumb laws for each of these states to show you.
The beautiful state of
1. All residents may be fined as a result of not owning a boat.
I love this law. I mean...if you are lucky enough to live in Hawaii, you better own a boat to truly enjoy it. Besides, if that big volcano gets ready to blow, you gotta have a way OFF the island, right? You are on your own then, buddy...better have some oars and some strong arms to row yourself back to the mainland....
2. Coins are not allowed to be placed in one’s ears.
Well, I guess I won't be able to entertain the little kids with my "what's behind your ear?" coin trick then, will I? What? What? I can't hear you, I have a coin behind my ear.....
Those are the only TWO dumb laws I could find for Hawaii.....
Next in alphabetical order comes the great state of:
1. It is illegal for a man to give his sweetheart a box of candy weighing less than fifty pounds.
Now THAT's what I'm talkin' about....! Valentine's Day must be a state holiday there...can you imagine getting a 50# box of chocolates for V. Day? Woo HOO! I bet there isn't much PMS in Idaho then. Probably not many bikinis, either...because if the sweethearts are getting 50# boxes of chocolates...then.....
2. You may not fish on a camel’s back.
You mean I can't saddle up my pet camel and wade into the lake and fish off of him? I might as well not go fishing then..because I am not going to be able to get the usual height when I cast off the camel's hump, for cripe's sake.
3. Riding a merry-go-round on Sundays is considered a crime.
I probably don't want to bring the carnival to any towns in Idaho then...or if I do, I better close off the whole thing on Sundays and maybe go fishing. Oh. Wait...can't do that if I have a camel either. They just aren't fun in Idaho.
4. Residents may not fish from a giraffe’s back.
What? First my camel and now my giraffe???? They don't want me casting with any height whatsoever. Oh, wait ...I still have my elephant...it may cause some tidal waves when we get to the lake, but as far as I know, there is no law against using my elephant to fish. Whew....I was worried there for a minute.
In Couer d Alene:
Well, thank goodness. I will have time to get dressed and comb my hair, and maybe even put on some fresh lipstick. Besides, three minutes??? Gosh maybe we can....ummm....finish "our business" by then anyway. No use being inconvenienced. Besides, some couples like the excitement of knowing there is a policeman waiting for them to get done with sex. Right? Right???? What happens at the three minute mark? Is it like a football game where he blows a whistle or throws down a penalty flag and yells: "Foul play!"????
6. Dirt may not be swept from one's house into the street.
Just keep in under the carpet, like usual..or maybe under the bed. No one will look there. Besides, your pet camel likes sand, doesn' t he?
7. Bicycles are not allowed in the tennis courts.
How ELSE am I going to chase the ball back and forth? You aren't suggesting I should actually RUN after them, are you? Because that just won't do! Maybe I can use my giraffe or camel or elephant to ride there?
8. A person may not be seen in public without a smile on their face.
Totally AWESOME! This law should be enacted in every state of the union...especially in Washington D.C.....are you with me on this one, everybody??? Let's start a petition to make it so.
I LOVE that law.
Way to go, I-da-HO !!!!!
