Thursday Thirteen

OK – so people don’t think I am picking on TX – I have
13 crazy/dumb/outrageous laws from all over the world!
Believe me… this was hard to narrow down to ONLY 13!! Enjoy!!

1. In Bozeman, Montana, a law prohibits all sexual activity from the front yard of a home after sundown.
2. In Salt Lake County, Utah, it's illegal to walk down the street carrying a violin in a paper bag.
3. In Oklahoma, you can be arrested for making ugly faces at a dog.
(What if it's an ugly dog...?)
4. In Wilbur, Washington, it is illegal to ride an ugly horse.
( but can you make faces at him? )
5. In Florida men seen publicly in any kind of strapless gown can be fined.
6. In Tennessee, you are breaking the law if you drive while sleeping...
7. In California it is illegal to set a mouse trap without a hunting license.
8. In France, it is against the law to sell an "E.T"doll. They have a law forbidding the sale of dolls that do not have human faces.
9. In Athens, Greece, a driver's license can be taken away if the driver is thought to be either "poorly dressed" or "unbathed"
10. In Louisiana, biting someone with your natural teeth is considered "simple assault," but biting someone with your dentures is "aggravated assault."
11. In the state of Washington, it is illegal to have sex with a virgin under any circumstances. (Including the wedding night.)
12. In Switzerland, it is illegal for a man to relieve himself while standing up after 10pm. (even with the light on?)
13. In Massachusetts, it is illegal to go to bed without first having a bath.
(However, another law prohibits bathing on Sunday)

So, I guess there is no sleeping in Massachusetts on Sunday?

I'm stuck on #1 for two reasons:
1) Why would you want to have sexual activity before sundown in broad daylight?
2) Who the heck is having sex on the front lawn anyway?! Bugs! Hello!

I really want to know how these laws get started in the first place!
