Overview

Did you know that . . .

In Maine it is illegal to catch a lobster with your bare hands?

A Kentucky law specifies that you must remove your hat if you come face-to-face with a cow on the road?

Arizona has enacted a "veggie hate crimes act" that makes disparaging its produce a crime?

Who says the law must always make sense? This delightful new book proves beyond a reasonable doubt just how absurd our laws can be. Ludicrous Laws and Mindless Misdemeanors takes a hilariously irreverent look at our legal system, featuring downright logic-defying decisions, preposterous defenses, and scores of silly statutes that pepper our nation's law books. Here's the whole truth and nothing but on laughable lawsuits, judicial jokesters, and classic courtroom capers.
