Have You Ever Looked Up Dum Laws In Your State

I was curious so I did a search on dum laws, in Florida. Some of these are obviously very old, and quite funny. Here is just a sampling: 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. A special law prohibits unmarried women from parachuting on Sunday or she shall risk arrest, fine, and/or jailing. Women may be fined for falling asleep under a hair dryer, as can the salon owner. It is illegal to sell your children. Unmarried couples may not commit “lewd acts” and live together in the same residence. Citizens may not be caught downtown without at least 10 dollars on their person. A women can be fined (only after death), for being electrocuted in a bath-tub because of using self-beautification utensils. I think I like the last one the best, that is pretty funny. What about your state?

Funny discussion. When I went to school for a truck driver license in Germany, there was a law for employers: If they want to employ female truck drivers, they have to provide trucks equipped with a steering wheel and brakes. (Wondering what police will say when I go on the road with a "male-driver-truck", hi hi hiiii).

In Michigan, where I'm originally from, it is illegal to chain your alligator to a fire hydrant. In Ohio right next door, it is illegal to go fishing for whales on Sunday. And in Colorado, where I live now, it is illegal to take your mule or donkey to the second floor of any establishment.
