We picked up this book at the library this week.
The title is Chickens May Not Cross The Road and Other Crazy (but true) Laws by Kathi Linz. We spent the morning laughing at some of these crazy laws. Our favorites are Policemen ARE allowed to bite a dog if they think it will calm the dog down (Paulding, Ohio), A pickle is not to be sold unless it bounces (Connecticut State Law), Riding an ugly horse is illegal (Wilbur, Washington), If anyone is caught stealing soap, he must wash himself with it until he uses it up (Movave County, Arizona).
We all agreed that someone in this family would like this one to be law around here.... You must have a doctor's prescription to take a bath (Boston, Massachusetts). We can say with a fair amount of certainty that said child would NEVER go to the doctor again!!
While this one was funny, it really became funny to us when Sport read that it is law in Oklahoma State. How is fishing for whales even a problem in Oklahoma? How did this even become a law? At least it made for a good laugh!
If your looking for a good laugh, head to the library and check out this book!
