Weird, Wacky, Wonderful Florida

Let’s have some fun discussing the ridiculous, outdated and just almost-too-funny-to-be-true laws that exist in the Sunshine State of Florida. This blog is intended to be fun and provide legal trivia that’s perfect for a water-cooler conversation or to stump your friends!

Just in my home state of Florida:

The Florida State Constitution allows for freedom of speech, a trial by jury, and pregnant pigs to not be confined in cages.        

Laws in Florida include:

    *It is illegal to sell your children.

    *It is considered an offense to shower naked.

        *Men are not allowed to wear a strapless dress in public; if it has any kind of straps, it is ok, though.

        *Don’t set off any torpedoes in Destin; that’s a no no there...or really anyplace, if you don’t want a lot of trouble you are not expecting.

        *Don’t tie your pet alligator or elephant up to a parking meter without paying for the parking; that will get you fined (oh, and let’s not forget the jumbo pooper scooper for the elephant!)

    *You are not allowed to break more than three dishes per day.

        *And in case you think it is ok to switch to breaking cups in Florida, be aware: chip the      edges of more than four cups or saucers, and you are breaking the Law.

Keep in mind that this blog is for entertainment... it is not advisable using the mentioned laws as evidence in court, unless you'd like the judge to laugh you into jail!
