    "Erected and erection."

    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    Does the rule have anything to do with whether you have wood or not?

    This made me check on how I might be breaking the law here... so far this morning I am a master criminal:

    - I have 2 dildos in the house. (Disallowed in AZ) (Don't ask)...
    - Hunting camels is prohibited so I'll have to find something else to do today...
    - Wearing a red mask while committing a misdemeanor is considered a felony, so having those 2 dildos in the house while wearing my red bandana on the bike puts me over the edge.
    - Donkeys are not allowed to sleep in bathtubs, so I better move Dobbin back out to the pool...
    - Even my wife is going down too, as wearing pants as a woman is against the law here in Tucson...
    It's all Here. Now.

    This one is pretty tame compared to the dildo by-laws

    We have strict by-laws regarding operating Ice Cream trucks (the highlights for me)

    Every operator licensed under this by-law shall:

    (1) be civil and behave courteously;

    yadda yadda yadda

    6) only use single service disposable cups, plates, forks, spoons and serviettes which are individually wrapped or provided in dispensers approved by the Region of Peel Health Department;

    Yadda yadda yadda

    (10) refuse to serve any customer standing on a roadway;
    (11) wear clean clothes, be clean and neat in appearance, and have clean hands; and
    (12) conspicuously display on the rear, in black letters on a yellow background the words “Watch for Children” in letters at least 15 centimetres high and the vertical width of such yellow background shall be at least 22 centimetres.

    No person shall operate an ice cream vehicle:

    (6) within one hundred (100) metres of any public or private school property during the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on any regular school day

    and finally

    (10) ring bells or chimes or make any other recognizable sounds at any one location for more than twenty seconds.




    So watch out ice cream man!

    'Do not fold, spindle or mutilate' (US paper currency)

    Does that mean trifold wallets are"folding paraphernalia"?

    Could also mean it's illegal for a man to wear pants while being dressed as a woman.

    Do they arrest the pilots and ground crew of any military aircraft in the area?
    Just about every current US Combat aircraft can carry a nuclear weapon.
    I think there's airshows in Chico. Didn't check for any Air Force bases.

    For Nevada:

    It's still legal to hang someone for shooting your dog on your property. Rock on!
    Sex toys are outlawed in Reno. In the state that was founded on gambling, divorce, and prostitution (though not necessarily in that order)??
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    Children may smoke, but they may not purchase cigarettes.

    Well, South Dakota has some interesting ones.

    If there are more than 5 Native Americans on your property you may shoot them.

    If three or more Indians are walking down the street together, they can be considered a war party and fired upon.

    No horses are allowed into Fountain Inn unless they are wearing pants.

    It is illegal to lie down and fall asleep in a cheese factory.

    From my hometown....

    No person may water his lawn in such a way as to annoy his or her neighbor.

    Sec. 70-153. Sprinkling of property.

    No persons shall, with purpose or intent, sprinkle their property in any manner to the distress or annoyance of others.
