I had read some of these before but some are new to me - like taking your French Poodle to the opera and horses not being allowed to EAT fire hydrants!!!

You gotta think that at some point in history, there was a REASON that these laws were enacted!

I remember a couple more from somewhere - In Miami, FL, it's illegal to park your elephant after 1pm on Sundays on 8th Street.

And in Alaska, where it's legal to hunt bears, it is ILLEGAL to WAKE ONE UP TO TAKE HIS PICTURE!!! OMG!!!

This is a fantastic post!
