    You can get arrested for THAT?

    There's a new book, and a blog out, by some guys that travelled the country, violating silly laws. What's a "silly law"? Well, for example:

    Hand-walking across the street
    is illegal in Hartford, Connecticut.



    or this one:

    Sporting a "goatee" is illegal in Boston.




    or...
    It is illegal in Globe, AZ to
    play cards with a Native American.



    or one of the best ones...

    It is illegal to peel an orange
    in a hotel room in Los Angeles.

    You can read more at the website http://www.randomhouse.com/crown/you...hat/index.html, which I found hilarious.

    Haha, I've peeled oranges in a hotel room - I think the site might be faux?

    Awsome find Frogberto! I love reading about stupid laws.

    I've always wanted to have an ice cream cone in my back pocket on a Sunday, here in Georgia. I just don't know if it has to have ice cream in it, that'd be kind of messy.

    It's not "faux". These types of ridiculous laws really do exist.

    I love the pictures of the "law" breaking! Naughty, naughty guy!
    I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
    That explains the trouble that I'm always in...

    In Lodi it's illegal to shoot silly string at parade participants.

    In my hometown of Redlands motor vehicles may not drive on city streets unless a man with a lantern is wallking ahead of it.

    In Temecula ducks have the right of way to cross Rancho California St.

    That's hilarious! I know here in California there are all kinds of unusual laws, many of which have to do with cattle and horses. I'm just too lazy to look up all of them, which have never been repealed.

    I remember a law somewhere where it was illegal to shoot an animal while riding a streetcar.

    I am only going to say this because I think it's expected of me:
    He is hot and I'd like to hand-walk across the street in Hartford with him.

    Not bad, but try this:
    He's hot, and I'd like it if he walked his hands across me in Hartford.

    Careful girls. What you are thinking about could be illegal everywhere.

    I'm thinking I want to do something oddly illegal with a hot guy, the guy walking on his hands in the picture...

    What were you thinking is illegal, Ashee?
