I live in Albany New York had no idea it was illegal to golf in the streets. I also read somewhere that its illegal to carry ice-cream in your back pocket, but I forgot where. And in another place its illegal to wear high heels

Are these laws in effect (i.e. there`s a specific reference to the law in question), or are they just circulating as rumours on the web?

In Virginia, it`s illegal to have sex in any position other than missionary. I would have loved to see that hot chick breaking that law!

I love stupid laws. And to whoever asked earlier, Americans don`t know what wank is. Whenever I say it people always ask me what I mean.

Pretty funny. Not sure why they felt the need to go to America to do it though. There`s tonnes of weird laws in the UK too. In my city it`s still legal to shoot a Welshman with a bow and arrow after midnight within the city walls.

lol I love that! I always laugh about ridiculous laws all over the country, but people actually trying to break them is great.

One little complaint: They said the roundabout was the only one they`d seen. There`s a bunch of them in Washington, and that`s far less than 3000 miles away from California.

It would be cool if they set up a sign listing the statute and citation in big letters (if outside) so people understand what they`re doing.

That would be so much more bad as s.

"in arizona hunting camels is prohibited.
man, it`s camel season too (-.-)"

haha, oddly enough, that one makes sense.

I live in AZ so I heard alot about this.. A very long time ago they brought camels over from wherever and tried to breed them here, all was going well, until they got hunted out =/
