“You Can’t Make this Stuff Up”

“You Can’t Make this Stuff Up”





Today my daughter and I will be driving south through Ohio and into Kentucky. I told her that we'd better be careful about some of the Kentucky & Ohio laws.

In Lexington it is illegal to transport an ice cream cone in your pocket.

By law, anyone who has been drinking is "sober" until he or she "cannot hold onto the ground."

It is illegal to have sex on a parked motorcycle in London, Kentucky. It's all good as long as the bike is moving.

Any person who displays, handles or uses any kind of reptile in connection with any religious service or gathering shall be fined not less than fifty dollars ($50) nor more than one hundred dollars ($100).

In Canton, if you lose your pet tiger you must notify the authorities within one hour.

You cannot eat a doughnut and walk backwards on a city street in Marion.

Women are prohibited from wearing patent leather shoes in public.

Good morning Joe. Some of the people who voted for this stuff are now in Washington DC. You can't make this stuff up! Enjoy your day!

Since I moved from Ohio many many years ago these laws could have been the reason.

The reptiles and religious services makes sense - I can see who that was directed to but ice cream cones, donuts and PATENT LEATHER SHOES? Even after Labor Day. What is the world coming to

Good morning Joe. You are right, you can not make this stuff up nor would you want to.

These are hysterical, Joe. Makes on wonder who'd put an ice cream cone in their pocket or walk backwards while eating a donut.

There should be more books written about these types of laws.

Delighted to see you again.
