The World's Funniest Laws [NOOK Book]

Overview

When we think of laws in the UK we recall the Magna Carta of about 800 years ago. All over Europe laws were formed and had time to mature over the centuries. Not so in the USA which grew to be a world power in a relatively short period. As a new country, laws would spring up wherever people would settle.

Overview

When we think of laws in the UK we recall the Magna Carta of about 800 years ago. All over Europe laws were formed and had time to mature over the centuries. Not so in the USA which grew to be a world power in a relatively short period. As a new country, laws would spring up wherever people would settle. Any educated man could become a lawyer and any local judge could pass laws in his town that he felt appropriate.
Although most of these laws seem very silly to us now, at the time they must have been passed for a reason and because the town’s leading citizens wanted to stamp out a particular problem.
The section on funny American laws, which takes up most of the book, is divided alphabetically by State. It is an eclectic set of laws chosen for their weirdness and comic aspects. Each State’s motto is noted after the State heading. A random collection of funny laws from other parts of the world follow but really, as you will see, America has the crown!
