In my state, Kentucky, it's illegal to remarry the same man 4 times. Whoa! You gotta love punishment to marry someone you've divorced 3 times.

In New Jersey, it is illegal to throw a bad pickle into the street in the state capitol. It's also illegal to frown at a police officer.

Well, I guess the wild camels are safe here in AZ, hunting them is prohibited. Yes, there are or used to be wild camels here; the army tried them out thinking they would do better than horses. When it didn't work they just turned them loose; pretty much the way wild horses and burros came to be here. Speaking of burros/donkeys..........I'm going to have to break this news to my own 2 burros!! It is illegal for them to sleep in the bathtub!!!!!!!!

In case you don;t know how to make a proper chowder, Massachusetts says:

"Tomatoes may not be used in the production of clam chowder. "

No one may set fire to another person's property without prior permission. Please sir, may I burn your house down. I'm feeling a little bored today and that might add a little excitment to my life...
