Sometimes I just pull out the list of archaic laws that are still on the books in various states for a “head-shaking” moment. In Virginia, I can look at the legislative comments for some of our laws, to get a hint on the intent of the legislation as it headed for vote to become law.
For these laws below, I cannot see an explanation… that could ever explain these.
In Maryland, it is still against the law for lions to attend the theatre. I don’t know the reason, but it is a relief for theatre attendees.
In Nevada, you cannot drive camels on the highway. I guess gas consumption is encouraged?
In Rhode Island, it is against the law to throw pickle juice at a trolley. I think that should be adopted for all traffic!
In Washington State, it is against the law to represent that your parents are rich. I suspect this has something to do with banking.
And finally for today’s blog… In New Jersey, it is against the law to slurp your soup. There probably is some food joke that should be inserted here involving Governor Christie, but I will leave him alone today.
And finally for pic o’ day, how about some poetry?
