    It is legal to drive the wrong way down a one-way street if you have a lantern attached to the front of your automobile.

    Why shouldn't you drive the wrong way if you're going to go to all the trouble of hanging a lantern on your Porsche?

    You must have windshield wipers on your car.

    Now, whether or not they work is up to you...

    You may not have an ice cream cone in your back pocket at any time.

    We had to enact this one - too many Yankees were sticking their chocolate cones back there and after a few minutes they looked like they'd just gone potty...

    Masks may not be worn in public.

    Actually, this one isn't dumb. It was enacted in the 1920's (maybe earlier) as an anti-Klan measure and was actually somewhat effective. It provided a means of prosecution w/o waiting for someone to be hurt. It does make an exception for Halloween.

    Yes, I'm a legal geek - I honestly read this one in the library as a kid (yes, the law itself). Then I went home to ask my mom if she and Daddy were legally married because she was 1/16th Cherokee and I found a law that prohibited 'mixed' marriages. Good thing she was a legal secretary - although her boss laughed at me for a week.

    Women are able to retain all property they owned prior to marriage in the case of divorce. However, this provision does not apply to men.

    Why should it? What's mine is mine and what's yours is mine. Life would be much easier if you guys would read the manual...

    It is illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating a vehicle.

    Yankees. Can't live with 'em; can't shoot 'em.
