40 Craziest Small Town Laws in America




1 Eating Peanuts and Walking Backwards During a Concert Is Banned; Greene, NY

Apparently, you can eat peanuts and walk backwards any time there isn't a concert happening, but once the band strikes up, you better turn around and walk right in Greene, NY.

2 It's Illegal Not To Smile; Pocatello, Idaho

Pocatello passed this law after an exceptionally hard winter as a little joke and somehow managed to remain on the books. A local reporter wrote about it in the Idaho State Journal, and news of the law spread around the country. The American Bankers Association found out about the law and used the town in a national advertising campaign, which led to the town being known as the U.S. Smile Capital. The punishment for not following the ordinance is a joke "arrest."

3 No Fancy Bike Riding; Galesburg, Illinois

In Galesburg, Illinois, you have to ride your bike with both hands on the handlebars and no acrobatics or anything like that. Both feet must remain on the pedals, and don't even thing about doing anything "fancy." Riders under the age of 16 who get busted for fancy riding will be fined a staggering $1, which they have 24 hours to pay. After that, the fine goes up to… $3. And if the fine isn't paid up after 72 hours, it then leaps to the rate that is charged adults, which ranges from $30 to $100.

4 Hitting a Vending Machine Is Prohibited; Derby, Kansas

The folks in Derby really want you to fight your every animal instinct and resist the urge to hit a vending machine, even if it rips you off. Doing so is a Class A violation, which is punishable by up to a year in the county jail.

5 Don't Bite Your Landlord; Rumford, Maine

It should go without saying that you can't bite your landlord, but apparently it needed to be said in Rumford, Maine, where they explicitly put that law on the books. Fighting with your landlord will earn your home the designation of a "disorderly house," which is punishable by a fine of up to $2,500.

6 You Can't Paint Sparrows; Harper Woods, Michigan

Painting or dyeing birds in order to market and sell them as another type of bird is against the law in Harper Woods, where—and this is just a guess, for the record—somebody probably tried to make a fortune marketing gussied-up sparrows as parakeets. Selling painted birds is a misdemeanor.

7 Don't Give Beer to Elephants; Natchez, Missouri

Once upon a time, a man in Natchez invited the town over to his place for a live elephant show. Turns out, somebody got the elephant drunk first, which inspired the town to pass this law. Interestingly, the law states that you can't give beer to the elephant on the street. Maybe if you did so in your backyard it would be fine?

8 No Parking in Front of Dunkin' Donuts; South Berwick, Maine

There's no room for parking in front of the Dunkin' Donuts in South Berwick, Maine, but that apparently didn't stop people from trying, so the town passed a law. And that's not the only law on the books featuring the Dunkies, which must be an extremely popular place to visit. It's also against the law to make a left turn out of the Dunkin' Donuts parking lot. Hopefully that business never shutters, or the city is going to have a few laws to amend.

9 Stay Off Ugly Horses; Wilbur, Washington

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but you better make sure everyone thinks your horse is good looking in Wilbur, Washington, where it's against the law to ride an "ugly horse," whatever that means. Doing so is punishable by a fine of $300.

10 Fighting Words Are Okay With Cops; Boulder, Colorado

In Boulder, Colorado, it's against the law to tease, taunt, or threaten somebody with the hope that your words will start a fight. There is one exception, though. It's perfectly legal to say fighting words to a cop, until the cop asks you to stop, at which point you are legally required to knock it off. The law has been amended a few times over the years, to make sure it's constitutional and doesn't restrict anyone's First Amendment rights, so now the intent to harass or annoy must be very clear.

Good morning everyboomie. wave2


We are half way through the first month. These are the days when I really love my morning coffee. [Linked Image]


It's cold here. We were supposed to heat up to 50 today but I'm not sure we made it. shiver


How about those football games huh? shocked


That Titans and Ravens game was a real eye-opener, and the Texans and Chiefs was too. crazy


The Chiefs were incredible Terri. Congrats on your team winning. Mahoms had 7 straight touchdown drives. eek


I'm watching Greenbay and Seattle now and pulling for the Seahawks, which is probably the kiss of death to them. woot


Have a happy week everyone. thumbsup

Hello Boomers, hoping you are all managing to stay warm and having a good Monday!

My plans for doing laundry and light housework yesterday fell by the wayside when Diana stopped by to take me out for some retail therapy! I had so much fun, spending my Christmas gift money. New clothes among other things! Then I got a phone call from youngest son who will be taking me out for the day for lunch and shopping in the near future. He also treated me to tickets at Christmas for a concert to see a Queen tribute band in February. Really looking forward to that!

Well, since nothing got done yesterday it will have to be done today! lol

Have a great day guys!

Much love,

Mary hearts wavegirl

Love the facts Joe but I do miss your jokes.

ana hope you get to feeling better soon. super cold this morning and extra cold in the house since we have no heat. still waiting to hear from the place that helps
low income folks about getting some help in getting a new furnace. all the letter says is we qualify and have to wait for someone that works with them to inspect our house to see what needs to be done. nothing extra needs to be done with weatherization. but we still have to wait to hear back , heck by the time we hear anything winter will be over with, but still need that furnace sytem for my ac to work this summer. doesn't help we got some nasty weather moving in for a couple days.

My10, I hope you hear from them soon.

I woke up to "Mom, there is a pool of blood on the floor." Rolled out, grabbed Lil Soot and headed to the vet. Back now. We are in "wait and see" mode. Going to grab them all and go to bed.

Have a great afternoon. :puppy
