Real Laws That Are Absolutely Absurd

Bureaucracy is a nightmare and it's not uncommon for stupid laws to become enacted even when they aren't ever actually enforced -or even can't be enforced legally. TopTenz recenly rounded up ten absolutely absurd laws (most of which are in the US) and you won't believe some of them. For example, in Utah, patrons can't see someone make their drinks because poor children might somehow be corrupted by witnessing someone make a martini, but not watching someone drink it. In 13 states, athiests can't run for office -except, they can according to the Supreme Court so none of these laws are valid.

So check out the full list of ten laws you won't believe are real over on TopTenz.

Agreed. Most of these lists are things like "In Tallahassee it's illegal to bring a short-haired pomeranian into the Department of Education building", when the actual law is that dogs aren't permitted in public buildings. (Don't know if that's actually a law.)
