Weird Laws

Some laws I get. Others seem like edicts drafted during some legislative mad-libs session. When I was living in Ann Arbor, there was a law circulating that went as follows: your body can be considered an open container (i.e. Bud tab is to beer what your mouth is to, well, that same beer--or some nasty jungle juice). There are numerous sites devoted to compiling the more entertaining U.S. laws, and here are some of my favorite selections:

A person must be 18 years old to buy a wax container. (CA)

No children shall attend school with their breath smelling of "wild onions." (WV)

Dirt may not be swept from one's house into the street. (ID)

Residents may not own chickens, but may own up to three turkeys. (CO)

No person within the city may possess confetti. (AL)

Any from your states I'm missing?
