Have you ever rode a donkey down the streets in New York? Or tied a giraffe to a telephone pole? Or crossed a state line with a duck on your head? You may be breaking the law

I recently came across an article in the Vancouver Sun about bazaar laws and wanted to pass along some of my favorite ones. I travel quite a bit so this information is quite interesting to me.
In Oklahoma, it is illegal to take a bite out of someone else’s hamburger
In Utah, birds have the right away on all highways
In Minnesota, it is illegal to hang men and women’s underwear together on the same clothesline.
In Virginia – oral sex is illegal
In Utah, it is illegal to hunt whales (even though Utah is landlocked)
In France, it is illegal to name any pig “Napolean”
In Anchorage, Alaska it is illegal to strap your pet dog to the roof of your car
In Alabama, it is illegal to play dominoes on Sunday.
In Los Angeles, it is illegal to put two babies in one bathtub at the same time
In Thailand, it is illegal to step on any Thai currency (coins or bills)
In Australia, taxis must carry a bale of hay in their trunk
In Great Britain, it is illegal for members of Parliament to wear armour to work
In Massachusetts, it is still illegal to bath on Sundays (although I don’t think this law is enforced anymore)
In Iowa, it is illegal to kiss for more than 5 minutes
In Washington, it is illegal to pretend your parents are rich.
In Minnesota, it is illegal to cross state lines with a duck on your head.

In New York, it is illegal to ride a donkey down the streets.

And my favorite:
In Vermont, it is illegal to tie a giraffe to a telephone pole.

I would love to hear your thoughs on these laws ...
