Dumb Laws in America

There are likely dumb laws everywhere and these ones are probably not enforced because well, I don't know how a great many of them possibly could be enforced. That doesn't change the fact that they exist though and at least for me, i find them very funny.


  • In Connecticut it is illegal for a barber to hum a tune while cutting your hair
  • In Delaware alcohol can not be served in places where there is also dancing (this puts a serious damper on the nightclub scene in Wilmington!)
  • In Georgia it is a punishable offense to carry an ice cream cone in your back pocket on Sunday

  • In Kentucky you are not allowed to paint baby ducks blue and sell them unless you are selling more than 6 of them at a time
  • In Maryland it is illegal to use foul language while driving (I have personally broken this law many times while driving in Maryland)
  • In New Hampshire it is illegal to collect seaweed at night
  • Not to be outdone by Delaware, North Dakota has made it a jailable offense if i person dares to dance while wearing a hat. You can also be charged simply by attending an event with dancing while wearing a hat
    sourceThe recent raid of a Fargo annual barn dance resulted in 48 arrests
  • In Rhode Island it is a massive offense if you ever bite off another persons limbs (certainly this offense is covered already under other existing laws?)
  • And the last one, which is probably my favorite states that in California it is illegal for animals to mate within 1500 feet of a place of worship.

    sourceBut i didn't know the law existed! Tell it to the judge son!

I am certain that none of these are actually enforced, but the fact that they ever existed in the first place is a good case for why I think that most politicians are complete morons.

Hope you found it funny!

I didn't believe you when i read some of these so I looked them up and you are actually telling the truth here. lol. Yeah, these are completely absurd for sure. Just a piece of advice and I don't mean this is a patronizing manor. You may wish to center your images in the future and if you do wish to do so you can do it quite easily by typing this < center > either the URL of the image at the source or drag and drop the image here < /center > Do not leave spaces inside the brackets < > ... I only did so because otherwise they would not appear in that instruction. There are many guides to the various HTML codes you can use such as this one [here](https://goldvoice.club/steem/@vitkolesnik/how-to-make-your-steemit-posts-look-beautiful-a-quick-guide) or you could always just start using Steempeak as your default interface, which is something I recommend because it is just better than the default Steemit interface in general. Overall, it was a good post, and I laughed a lot. I am not following you and hope you post more in the future.

Something I really would like is a video of someone breaking these laws and another person demanding the police to enforce them. Specially the ice cream one.

the look of "huh?" on the cops face when someoen makes a citizens' arrest on another person because of an ice cream cone in their pocket. Only to discover that it was just a misunderstanding because it was Tuesday and therefore the law doesn't apply.
