I've heard of a lot of these. The thing is, these "laws" are really just plays on an actual law, where it gives a scenario of what would be prohibited by said law.

SCENARIO: In Fairbanks, it is illigal [sic] to feed alcoholic beverages to a moose.
REAL LAW: It is illegal to feed wildlife.

SCENARIO: It is illigal [sic] to cry on the witness stand in Los Angeles courts.
REAL LAW: It is illegal to do any outstanding act that would persuade a jury to go to either side during witness testimony.

You get the idea of what I am talking about...I hope.

I doubt a lot of these are even enforced. I mean, certainly in California most police officers aren't told to enforce these laws. I wouldn't know about any of the other states, though.

This is all stuff I've heard before, but I would like to say that I live in Joliet, IL and I've heard that it is illegal to mispronounce Joliet.
Doesn't stop idiots from doing it, and I've never seen it enforced.
I imagine you'd have to insult a Joliet Police officer while mispronouncing Joliet.
Then you might get an extra ticket just out of spite or something...

Haha, I've seen plenty of people who need to go to jail! LOL! I guess that one isn't true.... or just isn't enforced.

I've also read some other crazy laws out in Columbus.
One is "It is illegal to walk down Broadway st. carrying a headless chicken on Sunday."
And one up in Atlanta is "it is perfectly legal for a man to beat his wife on the steps of the city courthouse on Sunday." o.O
