From the Florida State Laws: 'Having sexual relations with a porcupine is illegal' That does it... I'm moving, I'm outta here, whadda buncha backwards... oh wait... I'm moving anyway... [:D] Except here's one from the state I'm moving to: 'It is legal for a robber to file a law suit, if he or she got hurt in your house' I guess in Michigan they don't mind B&E's... hummmm... I think I'll check for laws regarding next of kin and lawsuits... [devil]

Nevada- I don't know if hanging is a swift enough punishment. To all the would be doggie assassins:
It's still "legal" to hang someone for shooting your dog on your property.

The really scary part is, it probably became a law law because someone actually did that. [peep]

Wow! Fortunately, I'm in good standing in New Mexico. But it's a good thing I left Oklahoma, where I grew up. There's probably a warrant out for me there. I broke at least 8 of those laws! Someone want to tell me how whaling became illegal in Oklahoma? I mean that had to be a big industry there at one time, right? LOL

From Michigan, "Any person over the age of 12 may have a license for a handgun as long as he/she has not been convicted of a felony." doesn't sound that bad. Teach them early.

Colorado Springs It is permissable to wear a holstered six-gun within city limits, except on Sunday, Election Day, or holidays. Why is this dumb? (except for not being able to carry on Sun, Election days, or holidays) We have open carry here in CO, but its good to know that I can't carry my "sixgun" in the city on Sundays! I'll carry my 1911 that day. Ha!

Here's one for Hollywood, California: "It is illegal to drive more than two thousand sheep down Hollywood Boulevard at one time." Hmmmm, maybe replace the word 'drive' with 'mount'?

In Oregon... Dishes must drip dry (why?)WTF It is illegal to buy or sell marijuana, but it is legal to smoke it on your own property. (i wonder how well that would hold up in court??? It is illegal to whisper "dirty" things in your lover's ear during sex. (hmmm...) Myrtle Creek One may not box with a kangaroo. I have never seen anyone box a kangaroo but thinking about it it could be funny stanfield It is against the law for animals to have sex in the city limits. (Repealed in 1978) how could you inforce that??? (bob the birds ar f*cking again get a gun???

From Alaska- Moose may not be viewed from an airplane. While it is legal to shoot bears,waking a sleeping bear for the purpose of taking a photograph is prohibited. (Why would anyone want to be close enough to wake a sleeping bear for any purpose?) State policy states that emergencies are held to a minimum and rarely found to exist. (A little known fact about Alaska) It is illegal to push a live moose out of a moving airplane. (I'm still trying to figure out how to get a live moose INTO an airplane) You'll love this one. A person may only carry a concealed slingshot if that person has received the appropriate license. (I think my CCW will cover this one)

Hey Darkstar. You guys having a lot of problems with men in strapless gowns down there?

Legal to smoke marijuana on your own property in Oregon? Hmm, Oregon just went up a notch in my book. But in Maryland: It is illegal give or recieve oral sex anywhere.(Man, that sucks[;)]) It is also illegal to grow thistles in your yard.(Not quite so dumb if you're aware of the thistles capability to infest crops).
