Be careful, many of these laws are still on the books
When visiting Louisiana, remember that it is illegal to gargle in public...you can do just about anything else in public, but NO gargling!
And be careful that you do not get caught shaving while driving in Massachusetts or you'll be in real trouble.
If you're going to be driving through Utah, be alert because the birds have the right of way on the state highways.
And walking down the streets of Maine with your shoes strings untied is also illegal.
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.
When in Nebraska, keep in mind not to spit against wind because not only is it messy, its also illegal.
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.
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.
In California, its against the law to peel an orange in your hotel room....I guess its ok to peel it in the hallway and then go into your room.
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.
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?
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.
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....
It is illegal to land a flying saucer in the vineyards of France.
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"
