Crazy Laws

Emilee Porter 1st hour


In Indiana there are some crazy laws including…. within four hours of eating garlic, a person may not enter a movie house, theater, or ride a public streetcar . It ‘s against the law to eat watermelon in a park. Last, we tried to pass a law that Pi equals 3! Good thing it wasn’t passed. Also hotel sheets must be 99” long and 81” wide.


Now we also have crazy laws all over the U.S.A, too. How about the fact that in Alabama you can’t play dominoes on Sunday. Or in Arizona you get 25 years of jail if you cut down a cactus. Look at all of these crazy laws.

  • Owners of flamingos may not let their pet into barber shops.

  • Donkeys cannot sleep in bathtubs.

  • Doors of all public buildings must open outwards

  • It is considered an offense to open an umbrella on a street.
