This first one was a great opener for all those insane and quite funny laws, but I'm wondering if anyone ever had to actually wear a pair of horse-blinders, and are those laws really legit or are they just made to be funny. In any event, if they truly enforced that first law, my ass would have been arrested a long time ago. lol

I wonder if the same law applied to woman?

Doors of all public buildings must open outwards. It is illegal to sell your children. Women may be fined for falling asleep under a hair dryer, as can the salon owner. A special law prohibits unmarried women from parachuting on Sunday or she shall risk arrest, fine, and/or jailing.

That Senior Citizens joke about the college freshman who said to the old Man "You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one" seems to hold some relevance here in those laws.

As I've posted before in another Topic; it's strange living in a state where it's illegal to live with or have sex with a woman that you're not marred to but it is legal to have sex with small animals and, it's also legal to beat your wife if she objects to it.

Lots of Chicken F***ers with wives who sport black eyes round these parts!
