You might think we live in a free country, but you"d be wrong! The man still wants to control how and where you eat.

**What I wonder is what happened for such laws to be created.**

Lawsuits, no doubt. Some f*cktards hurt their stupid selves doing these things and sued the crap out of someone. It`s pitiful how more and more laws get passed every day to protect idiots from themselves and eachother instead of everyone just being f*cking accountable for their own actions.

Itsalwysunny: "eh I`ve never heard of a blood orange before this may be a dumb question but what do they taste like?"

Not a dumb question, just a dumb sounding fruit. Anyway, they taste pretty much like an orange does only the red parts are a bit stronger and kinda sweet. It also depends on where they were grown, believe it or not. You can tell it`s a blood orange by the rind - it`s also got big red splotches.

They need to provide links that explain why these laws started in the first place.

It seems like some of those eating while walking backwards laws probably emerged as a result of a lawsuit or something of that nature, wherein someone choked on food while at a public government function/parade and the law was the typical knee-jerk yet ineffective solution affected. But that`s just IMHO

"In St. Cloud:

Hamburgers may not be eaten on Sundays."

Well I used to go to St. Cloud on weekends and I used to eat hamburgers there on Sundays. =S

I understand no. 5, but why are most of them so food specific? You cannot eat ice cream while standing on the sidewalk, but what about frozen yogurt? I call BS on most of these laws.

I do agree with the swallowing/inhaling water. But the old wives tale that you`re refering to is incorrect. There is only a very small increase in blood flow to the stomach when digesting, not enough to cause cramps. The "Wait an hour until after you`ve eaten," is utterly useless.

Number 9, first of all is a picture of a grape fruit, second of all who and how are they going to find out your eating in your bathtub?

i support the 5th, think about it, is for safety, you could swallow up water while trying to eat and pass out, not a very nice way to do it...
also is a bad idea you can get your legs or arms cramped, because the blood will be busy in ur stomach, so what comes after getting your extremities cramped in the water~ think a little

I could see #3 being a law because it could attract ants and stuff. But the rest are just lame.

Ridiculous Texas Laws:

"When two trains meet each other at a railroad crossing, each shall come to a complete stop, and neither shall proceed until the other has gone."

"It is illegal to take more than three sips of beer while standing"

"It is illegal to shoot buffalo from the second story of a hotel."

I don`t think any of these are seriously enforced. Who passes them anyway?

How many of those laws are enforced? Seriously? They are probably over a hundred years old and were never taken off the books.
Also, do you really believe everything on the interwebs? I do, but, do you?

Every state has it`s share of strange, and seemingly unenforceable laws on the books. For example, here in Minnesota...

Statewide:

A person may not cross state lines with a duck atop his head.

It is illegal to sleep naked.

All bathtubs must have feet.

In Minneapolis:

Red cars may not drive down Lake Street.

In Minnetonka:

Driving a truck with dirty tires is considered a public nuisance.

In St. Cloud:

Hamburgers may not be eaten on Sundays.

In Cottage Grove:

Residents of even numbered addresses may not water their plants on odd-numbered days excluding the thirty first day where it applies.

In Hibbing (PETA would have a field day with this one):

It shall be the duty of any policeman or any other officer to enforce the provisions of this Section, and if any cat is found running at large, or which is found in any street, alley or public place, it shall be the duty of any policeman or other officer of the city to kill such cat.

Wow, crazy laws. In Ottawa (ON,Can) it`s illegal to eat ice cream along Bank street on a Sunday. (Then again...it`s also illegal to drag a dead horse down Yonge street on the day of rest)

The line "The point is that THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO EAT ICE CREAM WITH A FORK IF THEY WANT TO." reminds me of something from The Life of Brian...

I think arresting a woman for eating an orange in the bath-tub would say more about the police than the "criminal".
