Law? what is it good for? Well, it helpfully gives us all a strict set of guidelines regarding things we shouldn’t do, because how else would we know that killing is wrong, or that drinking a bottle of vodka and then driving down a quiet street at three in the morning is a no-no? Obviously, the majority of laws are a good thing that are specifically designed to stop bad things from ever happening (even though it isn’t exactly foolproof), but buried away deep all over the world, are some truly ridiculous laws that are so insane you won’t believe they were ever actually enforced in the first place. And let’s be honest, a great deal of these probably never were. Still, it’s always fun to have a good laugh at the expense of authority, right?
Here are a couple of city laws from Alaska: In Anchorage, no one may tie their pet dog to the roof of their car? although we would hope no one was doing that in the first place, it’s an oddly specific law to have in place. Presumably some dude in Anchorage got drunk and mistook their pooch for a mountain bike. Similarly, moose may not be viewed from an airplane, although fair play to you if you manage to spot one from way up high in the first place. And while we’re on the subject of Moose, it’s also illegal to push a live one out of an airplane. Y’know? unless you’re teaching it to skydive, obviously.
Be careful how you speak, because it’s illegal to pronounce Arkansas incorrectly, and make sure you get a haircut if you’re planning on teaching in this state, because all teachers who bob their hair are (by law) refused a raise. On a slightly raunchier note, oral sex is considered to be sodomy (we’re pretty sure whoever came up with that law had a pretty awful experience). In Little Rock, dogs may not bark after 6pm, so either buy a muzzle or ask ’em nicely. Lastly, Alligators may not be kept in bathtubs, so if any readers out there were harboring dreams of moving to Arkansas and starting a career as a gator bather, give up on that dream. Seriously, that’s a pretty weird dream anyway guys.
