Most crazy, stupid laws are antiquated and old-fashioned. Most are primarily based on the standards of the past. Many are so crazy you have to wonder how and why they were ever enacted. While no one is really enforcing these unnecessary laws, the fact that they are still on the books just goes to show the level of stupidity in the legal system. Here are 13 of the most hilarious laws still enacted.

  • In Arizona, donkeys cannot sleep in bathtubs. Is there a lot of this happening? And, if so, why?
  • In California, no vehicle without a driver may exceed 60 miles per hour. My question is how often do you see a vehicle exceed zero miles per hour without a driver?
  • In Florida, if an elephant is parked at or tied to a parking meter, the parking fee must be paid just as if a car had parked there. Whether you’re parking a Porsche, Pontiac, Plymouth or a Pachyderm, just make sure to pay the meter.
  • In Georgia, you can’t walk down the street with an ice cream cone in your back pocket on Sunday. But having it in your front pocket is legal? What about if it’s on a Monday?
  • In Louisiana, you could go to jail for up to a year for making a false promise. So be sure you mean it when you say your vows at your wedding. “I do, I do, I swear, sweetheart, I do.”
  • In Louisiana, it is illegal to rob a bank and then shoot at the bank teller with a water pistol. What if you shoot them with a real gun? Is that legal?
  • In Massachusetts, no gorilla is allowed in the back seat of any car. What if the gorilla rides in the front seat? If so, is it required that he/she wear a seatbelt?
  • In Ohio, it is illegal to get a fish drunk. I’m bewildered at how this is even possible. More significantly, how do you know if you succeeded?
  • In Pennsylvania, it is illegal to sleep on top of a refrigerator outdoors. I can’t think of a comment that would be funnier than this law. That’s how ridiculous it is.
  • In Texas, it is illegal for a person to shoot a buffalo from the second story of a hotel. You can shoot all the buffalo you want from the first floor, but you can’t shoot them from the second floor.
  • In Texas, it is illegal to milk another person’s cow. Thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s cow.
  • In Vermont, whistling underwater is illegal. How is whistling underwater even possible? But after reading this, I bet you’re going to try.
  • In Wyoming, you may not take a picture of a rabbit during the month of June. Why June? What if the rabbit signs a waiver allowing you to take its picture?
