Are You a Criminal?

Post by Mark H »

A sampling from some of the archaic laws still on the books in Fl:

Women may be fined for falling asleep under a hair dryer, as can the salon owner.

A special law prohibits unmarried women from parachuting on Sunday or she shall risk arrest, fine, and/or jailing.

If an elephant is left tied to a parking meter, the parking fee has to be paid just as it would for a vehicle.

It is illegal to sing in a public place while attired in a swimsuit.

Men may not be seen publicly in any kind of strapless gown.

Having sexual relations with a porcupine is illegal.

It is illegal to skateboard without a license.

When having sex, only the missionary position is legal.


How about your state?

I think that's maybe the point... :lol:

Kinda reminds me of the old gag where one guy is making repeated strange gestures in the air with his hands together. Another guy walks up to him and asks what he is doing.

"Keeping wild elephants away."

"Is that so? Well, there aren't any wild elephants for at least 500 miles around here"
