    I don't know if they are accurate, but no one has the resources to actually enforce them LOL

    Some of them cracked me up. I'll make sure to shave my legs if I ever visit New Mexico.

    Sip it Slowly in Texas would make good title for a country song.

    2. Sip it Slowly in Texas

    It’s a good thing that Texas doesn’t celebrate Canada’s beloved May 2-4 weekend. Their jail cells would be packed to the rafters! In Texas, it’s illegal to sip your beer more than three consecutive times while standing. Texas is home to several strict alcohol consumption laws, so drink carefully while carousing in the Lone Star state.
    It encourages people to drink faster
    Downing the beer in three gulps or less is legal

    We're not saying this isn't a good rule to follow, but you have to wonder how many times this happened before they had to make it a law.


    I tried to look up mugshots of people who were arrested for DWUB but had no luck. Maybe they all died?

    Remind me not to go to Oklahoma, I eat my kids' leftovers all the time.
