It’s Illegal to Sell Your Eyes in Texas & Other Crazy Laws in America
America is always coming up with new laws. But that doesn't mean that they're doing away with the old ones. Here are some of the craziest laws that are still on the law books in America today.
In Alabama, it's illegal to wear a fake mustache that causes laughter in a church. If your mustache isn't funny, then I guess it's legal?
In Connecticut, a pickle cannot legally be deemed a pickle unless it bounces. Well duh - real pickles always bounce. Don't you test your pickles by throwing them on the floor before you eat them?
In Florida, if you tie an elephant to a parking meter the fare must be paid, same as a car. That's just common sense. You can't just park your elephant anywhere these days, ya know?
In Iowa, one-armed piano players must, by law, perform for free. Seriously? I would pay to see a one-armed piano player. I think that's kind of how they would make the most money, don't you?
In Kansas, if two trains meet on the same track, neither can proceed until the other one passes. Wait, what?
In Kentucky, you cannot dye a duckling blue and offer it for sale unless more than six are for sale at the same time. So can you dye one blue and not sell it? Do the other ducklings also have to be blue? Do you have to sell all the ducklings to the same person?
In Minnesota, a person may not cross state lines with a duck atop his or her head. What's this weird fetish with ducks?
In Missouri, it's illegal to drive with an un-caged bear. Yeah, but keeping them in a cage takes all the sport out of it, don't you think?
In North Carolina, elephants may not be used for plowing fields. Which sucks because they were so fast at it.
This one is obviously fairly recent. In Tennessee, it's illegal to share your Netflix password. Well, crap. What about my chill password?
In Texas, it's illegal to sell your eyes. I wonder if there's a distinction between selling them when you're alive and selling them when you're dead? It makes a difference!
In Utah, it's illegal to NOT drink milk. Sucks for the lactose intolerant Mormon.
And finally, in West Virginia whistling underwater is prohibited. It's also the number one cause of stupid people drowning. (To be honest, when I first read this I thought it said whistling underwear was prohibited. I thought that would actually make sense. Apparently, I was mistaken.)
