In the state I live in, North Carolina, it's against the law to sing off key. They've held a lot of American Idol auditions here, I wonder if any of them were arrested. *hehehe*

This is a fun list. Thanks for visiting myTT. Have a lovely day...

Shouldn't it be against the law everywhere to drive a car while sleeping?

What a funny list!!

I wonder where one gets that shaving permit?!

You've got to wonder about some of these states!!

 
At 12:39 PM, Blogger EmilyRoseJewel said...

Those are so funny. KY must be a dirty state to have the bath law. I can't imagine how they can keep chickens from laying eggs between 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. This is an awesome TT! Haven't seen one like it yet. My own is up!

No. 4 and no. 12 are like duh! Those were funny. Thanks for the laugh.

So how many people are breaking the law then? I'll have to remember to only drive while I'm awake in Tennessee (if I'm ever there). England has a lot of brilliant laws like that.

Happy TT

These are hysterical!!! I have read some very funny things like this over the years...wouldn't you love to know what is the impetus behind some of them???

My TT is up here.

#s 4 and 5 amuses me a lot. I don't think it is only in Tennessee that prohibits driving while sleeping. I think it should be all around the world otherwise you see accidents everywhere.
You mean in Kentucky people do not take a bath often? (Lol)
Thanks for dropping by.
