      Is that bear wrestling, or bare wrestling? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

        I'm sure bare wrestling would be a lot more fun than bear wrestling.

                    Actually, I don't think that is prohibited in any state. Check out this site.

                    I think barefooting and nudism go hand in hand. There are lots of nudists in the Society for Barefoot Living, for example.

                    Now back to the topic, as this post isn't funny at all. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                      Kentucky Law Mandates Bathing Once a Year
                      Excite News

                      Nov 24, 10:03 PM (ET)

                      By JERIANNE STRANGE

                      ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - A state law mandating that people take a bath once a year is just one of many unusual - some bizarre - statutes that are or have been on the books in Kentucky.

                      "There are a lot of crazy laws out there," said Ruben Gardner, Elizabethtown's chief of police.

                      Another state law, for example, stated that "No female shall appear in a bathing suit on any highway within this state unless she be escorted by at least two officers or unless she be armed with a club." The law was later amended with: "The provisions of this statute shall not apply to females weighing less than 90 pounds nor exceeding 200 pounds, nor shall it apply to female horses."

                      Other unusual laws and proposed punishments from across the state include:

                      - Throwing eggs (or tomatoes) at a public speaker could result in up to one year in prison.

                      _It is unlawful to dye or color a baby chick, duckling or rabbit and offer it for sale unless six or more are for sale at the same time.

                      Steve Park, finance director for the city of Elizabethtown, said he's found some interesting laws that were adopted by the city in the late 1800s and that are still on the books.

                      "There's one that states if a horse dies in front of a house, the horse owner has 12 hours to have it removed. If the owner doesn't, then it becomes the responsibility of the property owner to have it removed," Park said. "I'm sure that at the time it was a necessary law, but I'm not sure how needed it is today."

                      Another local law concerns a dog tax that was imposed. Park said the handwritten statute, found in very old minutes of city council meetings required a small amount for each dog be collected. "The sheriff is to collect the tax or shoot the dog," according to the minutes.

                          As far as I know it is illegal to drive barefoot in Michigan.

                          Jochanaan, I corrected my typo.

                          It is considered an offense to open an umbrella on a street in Montgomery, Alabama, for fear of it spooking horses. (Repealed)

                          A new law recently passed in Alabama: When a couple gets divorced, they're still brother and sister.

                          Q: What do a divorce in Alabama, a tornado in Kansas, and a hurricane in Florida have in common?
                          A: Somebody's fixin' to lose them a trailer.

                          Q: Why do folks in Alabama go to the movie theater in groups of 18 or more?
                          A: 'Cuz 17 and under not admitted.

                            Actually not.

                            quote:
                            Janet Wilcox, Analyst, Communications Section, Bureau of Driver & Vehicle Records, Michigan Department of State noted that while there is no law making driving barefoot illegal, "if a police officer feels that it is a careless driving practise, he may ticket you for careless driving."
                            No US State prohibits driving a car while barefoot, but in many states -including Michigan, it is possible to be cited for 'careless operation' or the equivalent. Just like 'disorderly conduct' type charges you can be cited for just about any behavior an officer decides they don't like. Such a citation is unlikely to survive in court if contested.

                            I often drive barefoot in Michigan after hiking or a beach outing.

                              So if a cop hasn't met his quota of tickets for the day, week or month, you could get one for "careless driving" because of not wearing shoes, if he stops you for any other reason and notices you're not wearing any.

                              A guy goes into a bar and asks the bartender if he wants to hear a good Alabama joke.

                              The bartender says, "Before you tell it, you should know that I'm 6-2 and weigh 225. See that guy at the end of the bar? He's 6-4 and weighs 250. And that guy at the other end of the bar is 6-6 and weighs 280, and all three of us are from Alabama. Now, do you still want to tell your Alabama joke?"

                              The guy says, "Nah."

                              To which the bartender smiles and says, "What's the matter? Are you chicken?"

                              The guy says, "Nah. I just don't want to have to explain it three times."

                              Don't think I'm picking on Alabama people. I'm just going through the states in alphabetical order.
