    I was at the doctor office once and while I was patiently waiting(haha) I picked up a book on strange/silly laws still books. I couldn't not believe some of the things I read in there. It has been several years since I saw that book but your thread reminded me of it. I remember something about no spitting on the sidewalk, no kissing in public, no swearing in public and many many more I don't remember. But it was very strange laws, almost comical really.

    I'd be in trouble then, because after dark is when I like to sit on the porch whiskey in one hand, pipe (or cigar) in the other.

    In AZ, it is illegal to bathe your donkey in your bathtub.

    Also, if your only mode of transportation is a horse, by law, your employer has to provide you with a place to stall/stable your horse while you are at work.

    In Manitoba, if you serve time in a prison, you are supposed to be supplied with an outfitted horse and a rifle when you are released. Another law, under the traffic act is 35mph when there is livestock near the highway including highways allowance.

    A Swiss immigrant, when he arrived in Canada was accosted and ticketed by a police officer for wearing shorts while riding his bicycle. In Switzerland this was common. He described the length of the shorts as just above his knee cap and he wore knee high socks. The officer said his shorts were indecent. The judge dismissed it as there was no law regarding this matter.

    We still have archaic liquor laws. The stores belong to the gov't and you can buy your liquor during regular business hours and Saturdays. Of course this supports the boot-leggers who are happy to sell during off hours, on the sly, at double the going prices.

    Unfortunately, Arizona is also a "right to work" state, so your employer could potentially fire you for making such demands and it would be perfectly legal.

    In Arizona, it's $20 gold piece, a horse and a pistol.

    -It's against the law for women to wear pants in Tucson.

    -Cards may not be played in the street by Native Americans.

    -In Prescott (where I grew up), you cannot ride your horse up the courthouse steps.

    -In Glendale (near Phoenix), cars cannot be driven in reverse.

    -In Tombstone, it's illegal for anyone over the age of 18 to have less than one missing tooth visible when smiling.

    And my favorite? It's against the law in Arizona to have more than two adult toys in your home.
