Topeka Kansas: Teacups for Tea Only

In Topeka, servers are forbidden from serving wine in teacups.

It is illegal to play hopscotch on Sunday afternoons. It remains unclear why it is forbidden, perhaps because it involves the word "scotch," or because it is a form of a Sunday law, encouraging rest on the Christian Sabbath.

New York Preempts Children Collection Discarded Cigarettes

In New York, it is against the law for children to pick up or collect cigarette and cigar butts. This is another of those strange laws that doesn't really provide for an enforcement provision.

More likely, it serves as a way to hopefully prevent children from picking up partially burned cigarettes and then smoking.
