In line with our weekly blogs of weird laws from across the country, let’s continue looking at some other weird laws. Last week we saw some strange Music laws from all around the world.  Let’s see what other weird laws are out there!

Here are this weeks weird laws.  Enjoy!

Illinois: It is illegal for a monster to be inside Urbana, Illinois…unless the monster has a license.

Ok ok they’re not talking about real monsters (even though I kind of wish they were).  This law was apparently enacted in the late 1800’s and required monster shows and exhibitions that were staged for profit to first receive a license from the city clerk.

New York: It is illegal to hang clothes on a clothesline in New York without first purchasing a license.

I wonder what the wording on the license is… “License to hang?”

New Orleans: According to the fire code, it is illegal to curse at a fireman when his is engaged in his official duties.

I guess it is perfectly OK to curse at him or her as long as he or she isn’t working.

Washington State: Before a motorist with criminal intentions enters Washington State, he or she must first stop at the city limits and telephone the chief of police.

How many criminals do you think actually abided by this law?  My guess is ZERO!

Indiana: It is illegal to take a bath in the winter.

Even though this law is gross, I guess it would make sense if it were enacted because Indiana was having a severe drought and they were trying to preserve water.

What do you think about these weird laws?  Are there any weird laws that you find unusually strange?
