Dumb Laws

Interesting trail staring at <a href="http://www.boingboing.net">Boingboing</a>, where we get this <a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/usa/story/0,12271,1425731,00.html">story about two Cornwall students breaking 45 dumb laws across the US</a>. They plan to criss-cross the US and breaking laws such as hiring a boat to go whale-hunting... in Utah.

They got most of their ideas off of <a href="http://www.dumblaws.com">Dumb Laws</a>, which has some interesting ones for where I live, <a href="http://www.dumblaws.com/laws.php?site=laws&cid=184&region=10">Georgia</a>. Turns out, I cant keep a donkey in the bathtub or tie a giraffe to a telephone pole. Nor can I carry a ice cream cone in my back pocket on a Sunday.

But naturally, in this state of corruption and greed, a state assemblyperson can't be ticketed for speeding while the assembly is in session... and considering their track record, I wouldn't be surprised if they were abusing this law.
