Top 10 Stupidest U.S. State Laws

The Top Ten Stupidest U.S. State Laws

1 Pickles must bounce. (Connecticut)

Oh,PLEASE! Nobody should do this, whoever made this law is dumb.

Something tells me The Mayor from The Powerpuff Girls inspired this law... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

2 No one may carry an ice cream cone in their back pocket if it is Sunday.(Georgia)

LOL. OK then, I can wait until Monday... - Metal_Treasure

Upcoming obvious question:
Who the hell carries ice cream in their pockets? - Mcgillacuddy

3 The penalty for jumping off a building is death. (New York)

I'm sure people inside the twin towers where jumping off it in 9/11

I guess I’ll have to parachute off the Empire State Building instead - Randomator

Well, you’ll already be dead if you do. - JoeBoi

4 Advertisements may not be placed in cemeteries. (Maine)

Why would you place an ad in a cemetery in the first place? - Randomator

This is actually good. It would disrespect the dead people and their families. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

5 No cannibalism. (Idaho)

I'm pretty sure that this law exists everywhere - Mcgillacuddy

No its illegal to kill people if your eating them your kinda killing them - XxPotatoMasterxX

This one is so obvious that its dumb. - XxPotatoMasterxX

6 Moose may not be viewed from an airplane. (Alaska)
7 It's illegal for donkeys to sleep in bathtubs. (Arizona)

Then I will buy a horse or an elephant (if it's legal for them to sleep in bathtubs). - Metal_Treasure

8 Those under 21 can drink legally, but they must be enrolled in a culinary program to do so. (Illinois)

This makes sense. If you want to learn how to cook certain foods you HAVE to taste the ingredient (alcohol) to do so. That being said, a person who just wants to drink can enroll in a culinary program, so this is kinda stupid. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

But these culinary programs don't last forever and it doesn't make sense to enroll in a program just to drink legally for a short period of time. This law isn't stupid. - Metal_Treasure

9 No faking your butter. (Iowa)

Well I do hate fake butter (Blue Bonnet) but it's kinda ridiculous to make a law against it - Mcgillacuddy

I can't believe its not butter.Your in jail. - XxPotatoMasterxX

10 One-armed piano players must perform for free. (Iowa)

The Contenders

11 It is illegal to wear your boots to bed. (Oklahoma)

Why would sleep with boots on though

Why is that?

12 You can't feed pigs garbage unless you have a special permit. (Arizona)
13 It is against the law to honk a car horn at a sandwich shop after 9pm. (Arkansas)
14 You may not step out of a plane in flight. (Maine)

Doing that would be a suicide attempt though.And what if you die before they can punish you?

Well, you’ll die then. - JoeBoi

15 You cannot hunt moose from an airplane. (Alaska)

How exactly can you hung moose from a plane?

And this is stupid why?

16 It is illegal to ride a camel on the highway (Nevada)
17 Alligators may not be kept in bathtubs (Arkansas)

Why would you keep an alligator in a bathtub?

18 It's illegal to fart at 6:00 on Thursdays. (Florida)

I bet they police that very strictly and that there are very strict penalties for farting at this time!

19 Prisoners who hurt themselves could serve an additional two years in jail. (Louisiana)

On one hand, it could prevent self-mutilation. On the other, it would be pretty stupid to lengthen a prisoner's sentence all because of one accidental injury. Honestly, this law is too broad. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

That's terrible because what if it was an accident? - Mcgillacuddy

20 Cars may not be sold on Sunday. (Michigan)
21 Persons may not be drunk on trains. (Michigan)
22 It it illegal to sleep on top of a refrigerator outdoors. (Pennsylvania)

Well, that’s just weird anyway. - JoeBoi

23 You Can't Make A Bad Face At A Dog (Oklahoma)
24 You Can't Hunt In Cemeteries (Oregon)
