    Ok, so Mike and I were dining at our local Denny's this evening. Mike orders the Grand Slam Extravaganza thingie. He gets eggs with it and orders them sunny side up. The waitress tells him he can't get them like that.....apparently sunny side up eggs are against the law in Hopewell I have lived here for 9 years and have never heard this.....

    What weird laws do you have in your locality?

    Probably a health department ruling. You have to have a minimum temperature for hot foods, usually 145 degrees. A sunnyside up egg can't attain that temp, so they can't legally be served.

    Weird laws? Not sure how weird, more like a holdover from ancient times, but in Winter Garden alcohol is not sold on Sundays. (Like it stops anyone).

    In Denver, it is unlawful to lend your vacuum cleaner to your next door neighbor

    Laws that are still valid in the city of Chicago

    All businesses entering into contracts with the city must sift through their records and report any business they had dealing with slaves during the era of slavery.

    You are forbidden to eat in a place that is on fire.

    It is illegal to give a dog whiskey.

    It is forbidden to fish while sitting on a giraffe’s neck.

    Kites may not be flown within the city limits.

    It is illegal to drink beer out of a bucket while sitting on the curb.

    And my favorite one :rolleyes008:
    It is legal to protest naked in front of city hall as long as you are under seventeen years of age and have legal permits.
