More wacky laws...

Here's my first installment of weird and wacky laws I've dredged up from the pits of the internet. I had to post them today...

I was having brain-lock this morning...

In Washington state, it is against the law to boast that one's parents are rich.

(But can you say you're in-laws are stupid?)

In Maryland, it's illegal to play Randy Newman's "Short People" on the radio.

(They've got no reason...)

In Alabama it is illegal to play Dominoes on Sunday.

(what about those felonious canasta players?)

And in Minneapolis, double-parkers can be put on a chain gang.

(This law in Philadelphia would have the entire driving population in South Philly in chains)

An old statute in Kentucky states that men who push their wives out of bed for inflicting their cold toes on them can be fined or jailed for a week.

(What about a wife who's terminally flatulent?)

A 100-year-old law in Willowdale, Oregon makes it illegal to swear during sex.

(I'd be in jail...)

An odd law in Minnesota makes it illegal to hang male and female underwear on the same washing line.

(Ya, sure you betcha'!)

In Melbourne, Australia it is illegal for men to parade in strapless dresses - but they are allowed to cross-dress in anything with sleeves.

(It's the armpits... It's a big turn on for the Aussie... Hairy armpits)

An old law in Russia allows a police officer to "beat a peeping tom soundly."

(and there's a problem with this?)

In Normal, Oklahoma you could be sent to prison for "making an ugly face at a dog."

(and this is Normal?)

And if you're in Hawaii and laughing at these odd laws, stop! In Hawaii it is forbidden to laugh after 10pm.

Is it illegal between 10 and some other time? Cause someone could be a jerk and argue that it's always after 10 p-m, depending on your perspective.
