Top 10 Stupidest U.S. State Laws

XxPotatoMasterxX

The Top Ten

1 Pickles must bounce. (Connecticut)

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

Then I won't have pickles... - Lucretia

This list is so funny! - Metal_Treasure

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 Advertisements may not be placed in cemeteries. (Maine)

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

4 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

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

And what if you die jumping off the building? Either way, you will die then. - Lucretia

6 Moose may not be viewed from an airplane. (Alaska)

Then I will look at caribou from a helicopter! - Lucretia

7 It's illegal for donkeys to sleep in bathtubs. (Arizona)

My dog hates being in the bath tub, so I can imagine what will happen if she slept in one, let alone a donkey. - Lucretia

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)

How many one armed piano players are there in Iowa, anywyas? - Lucretia

The Contenders

11 You can't feed pigs garbage unless you have a special permit. (Arizona)
12 It is illegal to wear your boots to bed. (Oklahoma)

Why would sleep with boots on though

Why is that?

13 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?

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

And this is stupid why?

15 It is against the law to honk a car horn at a sandwich shop after 9pm. (Arkansas)
16 It is illegal to ride a camel on the highway (Nevada)
17 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

Even if you honestly trip or fall or something? - Lucretia

18 Alligators may not be kept in bathtubs (Arkansas)

People actually own alligators that live in their home? And who wants a alligator in their bathtub honeslty? - Lucretia

19 Cars may not be sold on Sunday. (Michigan)
20 Persons may not be drunk on trains. (Michigan)
