In Bexley, Ohio # Ordinance number 223, of 09/09/19 prohibits the installation and usage of slot machines in outhouses. This is actually on the law books. Ive posted a few on my blog. you can see different stupid laws from Ohio http://www.nwo-wmg.org/webblog/index.php?post_id=453 and http://www.nwo-wmg.org/webblog/index.php?post_id=456

Scales of Justice - scale of justice
Having recently studied for an A A S in Paralegal Science, we did a search of strange laws and being a new resident of Alabama I searched for weird and strange laws heres a few good one for you... It is against the law to walk down the street on a Sunday with an icecream cone in your back pocket.( why someone would do that is beyond me) It is against the law to have a donkey in the bathtub in your front yard.( another I can not seem to understand ) On a Sunday before noon time you can take your wife to the local Court house and beat her with a stick that is no thicker than your thumb.( Guess domestic violence is ok on that day to huh) Thanks for the chuckles:) we all need them once in awhile.

LAWS AIMED AT CERTAIN PEOPLE: Wyoming prohibits fat people (defined as 100 pounds overweight) from swinging on swings or using other playground or park equipment. It is unlawful to eat fried chicken while walking down the sidewalk in places like Nebraska and Oklahoma, or to eat soup with a fork and suck up spaghetti strand by strand in New York, or to chew the ice in your drink in other places, or to add ketchup to baked beans in Boston. Squeeky baby strollers are prohibited in shopping malls along with loudly popping bubbles and other noises. Also, singing in the shower so loud it will disturb the neighbors carries a criminal penalty. Some places have weird "Indian laws" on the books. For example, it is against the law to "stir up Indians" and get them "to go on the warpath". Some Appalachia towns have ordinances requiring a person to take a bath the night before coming into town, and to carry on their person a signed statement by two reliable witnesses. Single women in California are prohibited from entering a place of business where men can be observed standing before mirrors, exhibiting themselves in a semi-naked state while lifting weights. Anti-smoking laws are proliferating rapidly. It is intent to commit murder in some places if you blow smoke in a police officer's face while he or she is writing you a ticket. Mississippi has weird barefoot laws. Being barefoot is allowed around friends and acquaintances, but outlawed among strangers. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DELINQUENCY LAWS: Anti-delinquency statutes in Idaho prohibit juveniles from deliberately stepping on ants. Parents in some states can be jailed for the curfew violations of their children. Safe school laws prohibit anything which could be used as a weapon, any prescription medicine, and any "disruptive" clothing. In Alaska, strong penalties exist for allowing huskies inside school buildings. Also, no youngster is allowed to build a snowman taller than himself on school property. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wonder if the height restrictions apply to a snowwoman?
