USA Map Flag

We Brits always secretly like to laugh at some of the strange ways of our ‘American cousins’. However sometimes they just seem to bring it on themselves. In this article we look at some of the most bizare laws in some of the States in the good ‘ol U.S. of A.

Utah


In Kaysville, it is illegal to detonate a nuclear weapon. You can own one, you just can’t detonate one.

A man can legally beat his wife, but no more than once a month.

Kentucky


In Louisville, it is illegal to walk down the street with an ice cream cone in your back pocket.

In Florida, you are not allowed to kiss your wife’s breasts. If that’s not stingy enough as far as the bedroom is concerned, the missionary position is also the only legal sexual position.

Georgia


In Atlanta, there is a law that states you cannot let your pubic hair grow past six inches. I wonder whose job it is to measure it?!?
