The Weirdest Laws in Every State

Can you guess the most bizarre law in your state?

No one has time to go through every law in the country, state by state, to analyze what every law broken down really means. By that same token, over time old laws tend to be ignored (or not as strictly enforced) due to changes in society norms that make the law outdated. It may be more of a bother to change an old law — like how mispronouncing Arkansas is illegal in the state — than deciding to just not strictly enforce it.

However, ignoring outdated laws also means there are some weird laws still on the books in many states — such as those that make bringing your horse to the Fountain Inn in South Dakota without pants, and crossing state lines with a duck on your head in Minnesota, illegal. But these aren’t the only laws that made our list.

 

There are others which are still enforced, or have been recently implemented, that are just as strange as the ones already mentioned. For instance, due to the amount of grease theft happening in North Carolina, as of 2012 you can face felony charges for stealing more than $1,000 worth of the grease. Another strange one that used is in West Virginia, where it is legal to take home road kill for supper. Find out what weird law your state has in our list of the weirdest laws in every state.
