Celebrating Women for the Real World



Waste of Space Monday

Waste of Space Monday is brought to you by Tammy over at Rant N’ Raven Heaven. I stumbled upon these “waste of space” laws, so read and enjoy… our tax dollars at work:

In Clarendon, TX., it is illegal to dust any public building with a feather duster…..

In Borger, TX., it is against the law to throw confetti, rubber balls, feather dusters, whips or quirts (riding crop), and explosive firecrackers of any kind.

Portland, ME., makes it illegal to tickle a girl under the chin with a feather duster.

Georgia law provides that it is a misdemeanor for any citizen to attend church worship on Sunday unless he is equipped with a rifle and it is loaded.

It is contrary to Pennsylvania law to discharge a gun, cannon, revolver or other explosive weapon at a wedding.

A law passed in Denver says that the dog catcher must notify dogs of impounding by posting, for three consecutive days, a notice on a tree in the city park and along a public road running through said park.

    Oh I do love these daft and silly laws πŸ™‚ Makes me wonder if anyone does actually try to enforce them though..lol

    Saying that though, the other weekend here in the UK, the City of London took advantage of an old bylaw and allowed a shepherd to herd his sheep across the Millenium Bridge for a special festival opening.. The pictures were quite something else, as you can imagine..

    You have to wonder what transpired to even make someone write a bill to be made into law on this topic.
