The 22 most Ridiculous Laws Still in Effect Today

Did you know in Georgia that chickens are not legally allowed to cross the road? It must have something to do with tht awful joke. That is one of MANY laws from various states that are inexplicably still on the books, even though they make no sense. Got another one for you.

It is illegal to sell your eyeballs in Texas. I gotta tell you, I am glad I found this out now as me and a bunch of friends were planning a trip there in October to sell our eyeballs. Man, that would have been a wasted journey, huh?

The beautiful thing is, that is just two from the list of 22 Most Ridiculous Laws Still in Effect Today from JustSomething.

It is cool because they break the list down to different states, so it is sweet to scan the list and see what kind of weird law your own state may have. For example, I am just outside Rhode Island as I type this, and apparently, when I am there, I cannot be sold a toothbrush and toothpaste on a Sunday.

I am going to go test this law this Sunday. Will do a follow up and let you know how it went.

Some of these are just good sense. If you cut down a saguaro cactus, you are killing a plant that may be centuries old. It is also the state plant of Arizona, I think. For that matter, only the most uncivilized and boorish peasant will eat fried chicken with anything but the two hands that God gave them (special dispensation is probably made for the handicapped).

. . . and as for San Antonio, well . . .

Our great Mikado, virtuous man,
When he to rule our land began,
Resolved to try
A plan whereby
Young men might best be steadied.
So he decreed, in words succinct,
That all who flirted, leered or winked
(Unless connubially linked),
Should forthwith be beheaded.
. . . and all is right!
