I’m Under Arrest for What? Fifty Bizarre U.S. Laws

I'm Under Arrest for What? Fifty Bizarre U.S. LawsI've never claimed to have extensive knowledge of U.S. legislation throughout history, but it's safe to say that I and most people I associate with are law-abiding citizens … or not. As it turns out, every state in this country has at least one wacky legal stipulation that could land residents in hot water if they don't comply. Don't say I didn't warn you.

It's illegal to wear a fake mustache that causes laughter in church.

Whispering in someone's ear while he's moose hunting is prohibited.

Cutting down a cactus may earn you a twenty-five-year prison term.

It's illegal to mispronounce the name of the state of Arkansas.

You may not eat an orange in your bathtub.

It's unlawful to lend your vacuum cleaner to your next-door neighbor (Denver).

A pickle cannot actually be a pickle unless it bounces.

It's illegal to get married on a dare.

Washington, D.C.
It's against the law to post a public notice calling someone a coward for refusing to accept a challenge to duel.

If you tie an elephant to a parking meter, you must pay the same parking fee as you would for a vehicle.
