Weird Laws

Some more useless information plumbed from the depths:

* theatres in Glendale, California, can only show horror films on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
*You can't plow a cotton field with an elephant in North Carolina.
Now that one is downright odd. Why use an elephant when a plough would do perfectly well, and probably be a bit easier to locate in North Carolina.
*In Lehigh, NEbraska, it's against the law to sell donut holes.
Also to sell the Brooklyn Bridge, I would imagine. Or tooth fairy wings. Rocking horse poo. Etc.
*Anti-modem laws restrict Internet access in the country of Myanmar (Burma). Illegal possession of a modem can lead to a prison term.
I am SO not going there.
*Lawn darts are illegal in Canada.
What do you expect from a place that exports Terrence and Phillip.
*In Idaho a citizen is forbidden by law to give another citizen a box of candy that weighs more than 50 pounds.
That one is curious. I'd like to know why.
And finally:
*Every citizen of Kentucky is required by law to take a bath at least once a year.
I'm not going to touch that one, with or without pole. Just in case it's 364 days since the last bath. Don't know what I might catch!
