Top 12 Dumbest Laws in American History (Part 2)

Hello all! Time for the next installment of America’s dumbest laws! Yes, there’s more of the wacky, wild, crazy, and downright stupid legislation from our wonderful county. Let’s begin with…

Number Six: In California (and three other states) ladies’ night is illegal on the grounds of gender discrimination. See? This is why I don’t live there anymore…

Number Five: Using profane language to a person under 14 in person or by telephone is considered disorderly conduct in Georgia. Mel Gibson better hope his family doesn’t move here…

Number Four: In New Mexico it’s forbidden for a female to appear unshaven in public. Unshaven? How would they know?

Number Three: If you’re performing the national anthem (or “Oh Fair New Mexico”) anywhere in this state, you’d better sing the whole thing. Only half-singing the anthem is literally against the law. It must be sung or played as an entire composition. Basically, my sister should never go here, she hates random singing.

Number Two: In Colorado, you need a permit to modify the weather. Guess this means Frozen 2 won’t take place in Denver.

Number One: A male over the age of 16 can’t seduce a woman by falsely promising to marry her. If found guilty, he’ll be charged with a misdemeanor, fined at the court’s discretion, and/or imprisoned for no longer than one year. Lying about calling her the next day, however, is still perfectly acceptable. Sigh.

So, there you have it: 12 of the weirdest, dumbest, most random laws ever added to the books (and, for some reason, are still there). Again, all of the laws depicted here are REAL LAWS (of course they are, who could make this stuff up?). Don’t they just fill you will red, white, and blue pride? (On second thought, don’t answer that!). Of course, there are many, many more, but twelve should be more than enough to make you consider moving to Canada. I won’t judge you if you do…in fact, I might join you! Then again, their currency is the Looney, (yes, really) so I’m thinking we’re not safe anywhere. Aren’t they supposed to be colonizing Mars?
