It is illegal to set a mousetrap without a hunting license.
Prostitutes in San Francisco are not obliged to make change for bills larger than $50.
:ha:
It is illegal to drive more than two thousand sheep down Hollywood Blvd. at one time. Bummer! :(
It is illegal to whistle for a lost canary before 7 am in Berkeley, CA.

Some more Laws
Florida:

In Miami, it's illegal for men to be seen publicly in any kind of strapless gown.
Apparently, it's illegal to give a lighted cigarette to a cat or dog in Miami. Oh but my cat loves to smoke!:rolleyes:

i've seen a website for laws like this before. seems kinda bogus to me. sorta like the odd loop holes in the law that people take upon themselves to interpret in distorted ways.

i got a ticket in GA for "improper lane change"
according to the state of GA, "improper lane change is to be defined by arresting officer."

in other words, even if your on a one lane, one direction road, the officer can still ticket you for changing lanes improperly...
[/rant]
also it is illeagle in VA to drive with no shoes unless you are wearing a swimsuit.

An Illinois state law requires that a man's female companion shall call him "master" while out on a date. The law does not apply to married couples.

In Los Angeles, California, it is not legal to bathe two babies at the same time in the same tub

In the fine city of Devon, Connecticut, walking backwards after sunset is not allowed.

Ohio: Riding on the roof of a taxi cab is not allowed. (Hear that Rich, no more taxi surfing!)

Texas: It is illegal for a person to shoot a buffalo from the second story of their hotel. Apparently, it is okay to do it from your house or apartment

plenty more where that came from...

Some of my favorites from Virginia

from Norfolk:

Spitting on a sea gull is not tolerated.

A man may face 60 days in jail for patting a woman's derriere.

Virginia Beach:

It is illegal to use profanity on Atlantic Avenue or the boardwalk. (there are even signs...:) )

It is also unlawful to drive by the same place within 30 minutes on Atlantic Avenue. (VB's finest enforce this one).

:rolleyes:

Kentucky :

A state law mandates people bathe at least once in 12 months.

Can't argue with that...

Another state law, for example, stated that "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."

The law was later amended with: "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."

California:
A housewife may go to prison if she doesn't cook her dusting cloth after use.

Oregon:
It is illegal to pump your own gas. The only self-serve station you will find there is in Crater Lake Nat'l Park.

Utah:
Birds have the right of way on all highways.
