Those Crazy Laws
November 28, 2017 1:42pm CST
I know there have been others writing about some crazy laws enforced in different states in the U.S. but after I read some of these I thought perhaps I could present them to you a bit at a time in humorous form. There you are celebrating and you’ve decided that the celebration wouldn’t be complete without throwing a whole bunch of confetti. Well you can go ahead and do that as long as you’re not in Mobile, Alabama because not only is it illegal to litter but it’s also illegal to throw and to even have and make confetti. Now if you happen to be traveling in Alaska and you wind up in Fairbanks be careful if you make friends with a moose. Now you might want to unwind and have a beer or too but keep in mind that it is illegal to serve alcohol to your friend the moose. For many centuries people everywhere have been spitting. Never even thinking about it they will wad up some spit and let it fly. Well that is rather rude and impolite especially in public but if you happen to be in Goodyear, Arizona it is even illegal. Spitting on the sidewalk, at a park or on a building you could wind up with a six month jail sentence or with a find of $2,500. Everyone knows that it is hard to know how to pronounce some words and for those who don’t speak English well it can be a disaster at times. Well in that case be real careful if you have to go to Arkansas. Why? We you might not get fined but technically it is illegal to mispronounce the state’s name. Never use that last “s” in the name of the state. It should be pronounced Ar-kan-saw. Usually cowboy boots are more associated with Texas than with California. However cowboy boots can be worn just about anywhere. If you are in Blythe, California be careful to remember this law. If you owned at least two cows you could wear cowboy boots but if you don’t have any cows then wearing cowboy boots is illegal. Now things get real tricky in Denver, Colorado. If you have just moved into a house and you want to do some housework but haven’t bought a vacuum yet then put off that job until you have had time to shop for one. Of course you could choose to ask your neighbor if you could borrow their vacuum. In this way you could introduce yourself and have a vacuum to do some cleaning up. This is not a good idea at all because it is illegal to lend a vacuum to a neighbor. This next one’s a real dilly. In the state of Connecticut you cannot call a marinated cucumber a pickle unless the green veggie bounces. If it bounces it’s a pickle otherwise it’s illegal to call it by that name. So what do you do if you buy a jar of green things that look like pickles but they don’t bounce? What do you all have to say about this? Hope you don’t mind but more coming up soon.

Most likely since the law still exists many people who live in Denver don't even know about it and therefore it just isn't actually enforced. Besides the way I look at it who would know if you did or didn't lend a vacuum to your neighbor @teamfreak16
