Crazy Animal Laws

November 9, 2010

There’s a reporter from the San Francisco Cronicle that decided to dig for the strangest, craziest animal laws he could find and well, he found some wacky ones. Check out this list:

In Ohio and Oklahoma, it’s against state law to get a fish drunk. For those living in the Buckeye State, it is also illegal to hunt for whales on Sunday.

California law prohibits animals from mating publicly within 1,500 feet of a pub, school or place of worship.

In San Francisco, it’s illegal to pile horse manure more than six feet high on a street corner.

In Wilbur, Washington, it is illegal to ride an ugly horse. (I searched for a list of criteria, but came up empty handed.)

The town of Fairbanks, Alaska forbids anyone from serving alcoholic beverages to a moose.

In L.A., it is considered unlawful to lick a toad. (I guess some people will do anything to get high. Kissing toads, however, is still allowed.)

In Sheridan, Wyoming, a policeman can bite a barking dog, in order to quiet him.

When you pass a cow in Pine Island, Minnesota it is illegal not to tip your hat.

In Atlanta it’s illegal to tie a giraffe to a telephone pole or lamp post.

In Lawrence, Kansas, it is forbidden for anyone to carry bees in their hat while traveling on city streets.

If you should find yourself in Canton, Mississippi, know that is against the law to kill a squirrel with a gun while in a courtroom.

In North Carolina it is illegal to use elephants to plow cotton fields.

Arizona law prohibits a donkey from taking a snooze in a bathtub.

In Arizona, it is illegal for donkeys to sleep in bathtubs.

In Florida, if an elephant is left tied to an parking meter, the parking fee has to be paid, just as it would be for a vehicle. (I suppose this also means that your elephant will be ticketed in the event that the meter expires.)

Also in Florida, it is illegal to have sexual relations with a porcupine. (Who but only the most extreme masochist would want to?)

If you happen to be visiting the city of Miami, please be aware that imitating an animal is a no-no.

In Minnesota, you may not cross state lines with a duck on top of your head.

If you have a habit of leaving your sheep in the cab of your truck without a chaperon, it’s best to steer clear of Montana where this is a ticketable offense.

In Tennessee, it is illegal shoot any game other than whales from a moving automobile.

Baltimore law declares it illegal to take a lion to the movies.

Heard a weird one? Let us know…

The True Canadians Fan

May 12, 2010

The True Canadians Fan

I was double parked in Laval, waiting for my wife to get back with our takeout sushi when I spotted this true hockey fan.

If you look closely (click the picture for a larger view), right behind the front tire there’s a Washington Capitals logo with a red ‘X’ over it…next to it is the Pittsburgh Penguins logo hoping for it’s own red ‘X’. After a quick walk-around  of the car I realized it wasn’t a publicity car for a restaurant that you sometimes see, but was actually somebody’s car, somebody who had gone through the process and expense of having his car wrapped…a true Habs fan!

Game 7 is tonight. Go Habs Go!
