Rignanese Law Blog


Because I had such good feedback from my last blog, this fun blog will focus on the ridiculous, outdated and just almost-too-funny-to-be-true laws that exist in the US. Read about fun legal trivia that’s perfect for a water-cooler conversation or to stump your friends!

In at least one US state, these laws are true:

Boogers may not be flicked into the wind.

Bear wrestling matches are prohibited.

It is illegal to impersonate a person of the clergy.

Putting salt on a railroad track may be punishable by death.

It is legal to drive the wrong way down a one-way street if you have a lantern attached to the front of your automobile.

It is considered an offense to open an umbrella on a street, for fear of spooking horses.

It is illegal to sell peanuts after sundown on Wednesday.

It is illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating a vehicle.

Dominoes may not be played on Sunday.

It is illegal to wear a fake moustache that causes laughter in church.

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