    These are sooooooooo funny!

    It's now legal to bring an insane person into Washington County, dance immodestly or let more than 25 mules cross a Virgin River bridge.



    These acts were illegal until Tuesday, when the Washington County Commission cleaned its books of a raft of obsolete laws.

    The housecleaning came as commissioners adopted a modern, comprehensive county code.

    The former county code was a collection of laws dating as far back as 1896, when ordinances were handwritten and stored in bulky, oversized books............

    There's a website called www.dumblaws.com that has a bunch of those old laws on it. I laugh my head off everytime I read there.

    I just told my husband about this post. Since he was watching a football game , he decided he could take me dancing immodestly leading 25 mules over the Virgin River Bridge. He knows I am insane for iterupting his game for this!
    I thought it was very funny. Of course it wasn't so funny way back then. They must have had a lot of trouble with that to write a law for it.I think they still have a law for NOT taking an isane person out of Upshur County in East Texas. LOL.

    Thanks for the funny today!!!!

    Alot of those laws need to be looked at, I found out in my state it is illegal to have more than 1 illegitimate child or to live together without being married. Both of those activities are pretty commonplace where I live.
