A Funny little book, which highlights stupid laws from around the world that are still on the statute books, though presumably are not enforced any longer in most cases.
When you read this it will cause you to ponder, what exactly occured to cause the city fathers of Canton, Mississippi to decide that it was a crime to kill a squirrel with a gun in a courthouse?

Format: Paperback
The laws of this world seem too silly to be true, but here they are. I wonder if anyone has actually been charged for breaking these silly rules. It is a crime in michigan for a woman to have her hair cut without her husbands permission, blimey and people complain about sexism here!
If you do get to court over one of the crimes in this book, dont think the court room is any help, read the courtroom quips section to discover how much sense they have!
The youngest son - the 20 year old, how old is he?
Were you alone or by yourself?
So you dont know what it was, and you dont know what it looked like, but can you describe it?

I think if i was in court being asked these questions id be sent down for being sarcastic!

Have a read it is funny

A collection of snappy Q&A, some hoary with age, some excruciatingly contrived, some bewildering and some really funny. A bit of a mixed bag, but if you want to give your brain a rest, slip it into neutral and coast along for a while, you could do a lot worse than dip into this little book.

This book certainly contains the odd gem but I was not exactly splitting my sides with laughter throughout what was a pretty short read. I had hoped to gather some material for after dinner speaking but found little worthy of making the cut. But, then again, I wasn't directly speaking about stupid laws, so perhaps I'm being a little harsh. Not a bad attenmpt at a very originsl subject.

This is very good book. It is best read a loud with a group of people who can laugh with you. It is even funnier to think that some of the laws were put in place after people attempted to do what they are against. an example:
In Canada it is apparently illegal to fly a Moose in an aeroplane. It is also illegal to throw a Moose out of an aeroplane. It begds the question: what Canadian idiot took a Moose on an aeroplane, took off then pushed the Moose out of the aeroplane.
