In line with our weekly blogs of weird laws across the nation, let’s continue our true or false edition of weird laws. Last week we saw some strange laws from Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and South Carolina. Let’s see what weird laws these next 5 states have in store for us!
True or False:
“It is illegal to lie down and fall asleep in a cheese factory.”
NOT SURE. However, if this law is true, someone must have actually slept in a cheese factory in order for the legislator to feel compelled to enact this law. What are your thoughts on this weird law?
“It is illegal for students to hold hands while at school.”
TRUE. According to the Tennessee Gateway Sexual Activity Bill, students are forbidden to hold hands with one another while at school. The Tennessee House of Representatives seem to think that hand handholding is a "gateway" to sexual activity.
“It is illegal to take more than three sips of beer at a time while standing.”
TRUE. I wonder what the rules regarding beer pongs and shotguning beers in Texas are.
“It is illegal not to drink milk.”
TRUE. What if you are lactose intolerant?
“Women must obtain written permission from their husbands to wear false teeth.”
TRUE. I don’t even want to know what called for the enactment of this law.
You’ll have to wait until next week for more weird laws from the next 5 states! Are there any weird laws that you thought were false but ended up being true?
