|Be careful, many of these laws are still on the books
1-When visiting Louisiana, remember that it is illegal to gargle in public...you can do just about anything else in public, but NO gargling!
2-And be careful that you do not get caught shaving while driving in Massachusetts or you'll be in real trouble.
3-If you're going to be driving through Utah, be alert because the birds have the right of way on the state highways.
4-And walking down the streets of Maine with your shoes strings untied is also illegal.
5-Oh, and in Atlanta, not only is it illegal to tie your giraffe to a telephone pole but if you get caught dressing a mannequin without shutting the window shades, you could be in big trouble.
6-When in Nebraska, keep in mind not to spit against wind because not only is it messy, its also illegal.
7-Eating out in Connecticut became so much more pleasant once the law requiring restaurateurs to provide separate nose-blowing and non-nose-blowing sections, went into effect.
8-And if you decide to order cherry pie while eating in Kansas, don't waste your time asking it to be served with a scoop of ice-cream on top...it against the law.
9-In California, its against the law to peel an orange in your hotel room....I guess its ok to peel it in the hallway & then go into your room.
10-If you're planning to do any fishing while visiting Chicago, be sure you don't do it in your pajamas or you might spend the rest of your vacation in jail.
11-And if you're going to set a fire under your mule, don't do it in Ohio..yep, its against the law. Can you believe it?
12-Whistling under water will result in more than getting water in your nose, it will also get you put in jail if you do it in Vermont.
13-And while you and your beloved spouse are enjoying the Florida sun, don't throw dishes if you happen to have a little disagreement with each other. If you break more than 3 a day, you could spend the rest of your vacation eating off of metal trays in the county jail.
We're not the only ones with the wacky laws. If you're planning a trip out of the country be aware that....
14-It is illegal to land a flying saucer in the vineyards of France.
15-And last but not least, if you take ill while in Iceland, never seek medical help from anyone who's shingle reads: "Scottulaejnir". You see, ANYONE, can practice medicine in Iceland as long as they display this sign. Loosely translated it means, "Quack Doctor"
