  1. n Owensboro, Kentucky, it is illegal for a woman to buy a new hat without her husband trying it on first.
  2. As late as 1932, jail-breaking in Texas was not a crime if the prisoner escaped without using a gun.
  3. In West Virginia, no children may attend school with their breath smelling of "wild onions."

In the state of Alabama, you may not carry an ice-cream cone in your back pocket. Why the law would specify the back pocket--or who would even think of putting an ice-cream cone in their pocket in the first place--I cannot begin to guess. But it's illegal in Alabama!

I heard recently on the radio that it was illegal to give a domsticated pet (cat or dog) a lighted cigarette in Illinois!

Riding bicycles in pools is in reference to BMX bikes. It was popular in SoCal in the the late 80s.
