It's apparently illegal in Michigan to swear in front of women and children. Also, a good one: If you plan to bath in public in Rochester, MI, your bathing attire must be inspected by police beforehand.

It is illegal to eat peanuts on the grounds, but outdoor, of a courthouse on Wednesdays in (i believe) Wisconsin.

Dumb Laws, Stupid Laws: We have blue laws, old laws, and just plain weird laws!

Any motorist who sights a team of horses coming toward him must pull well off the road, cover his car with a blanket or canvas that blends with the countryside, and let the horses pass.

It it illegal to sleep on top of a refrigerator outdoors.

Any motorist driving along a country road at night must stop every mile and send up a rocket signal, wait 10 minutes for the road to be cleared of livestock, and continue.

A person is not eligible to become Governor if he/she has participated in a duel.
