don’t push a moose out of a plane

It’s T-T-T-Tuesday. Which means: it’s trivia day. Normally, I just share a fact, but I thought it would be fun to cover more of a topic this time. Are you ready?  Here we go, friends.

Topic of the day: Outdated and ridiculous laws that are still in effect. Making you wonder the reasons they were once necessary in the first place and what idiots needed these stipulations.


United States:

  1. You are not allowed to keep an ice cream cone in your back pocket. (Alabama)
  2. It is considered an offense to push a live moose out of a moving airplane (Alaska)
  3. It is a $500 fine to instruct a pizza delivery man to deliver a pizza to your friend without them knowing. (Louisiana)
  4. Elephants my not be used to plow cotton fields (North Carolina)
  5. Slippers are not to be worn after 10:00 PM. (New York)
  6. It is a misdemeanor to shoot at any kind of game from a moving vehicle, unless the target is a whale. (California)

And, a few international ones:

  1. It is illegal for a lady to eat chocolates on a public conveyance. (United Kingdom)
  2. Citizens may not publicly remove bandages. (Canada)
  3. No pig may be addressed as Napoleon by its owner. (France)
  4. It is illegal to wear hot pink pants after midday Sunday (Australia)


If you are curious what stupid laws there are in your state or country, visit here:  – There are countless of them.

Now, who lives in New York and wants to bake cookies and offer them to a police officer while they wear slippers tonight just to see what happens?

Anyone in Australia feel the need to wear their hot pink pants this Sunday? Wait… does anybody even own hot pink pants anymore?

    Yes, yes, yes! I own hot pink pants and I have worn them after noon on a Sunday…but not in Australia. However, I have worn slipper after 10:00 PM in NY and I have eaten chocolates on a public conveyance in the United Kingdom. Wait! Are those sirens I hear in the distance?

    Speaking for this Australian – I don’t currently own any hot pink pants, but am now seriously inclined to go out and buy some – and wear them whenever the hell I like! And chocolates should be allowed to be eaten anytime and anywhere (and having 2 sisters living in the UK – I am pretty sure they are.) 🙂

    If it’s Detective Stabler, I’ll wear nothing but slippers and give him my bestest cookie. Or pie.

    As for pushing moose out of a plane, maybe the person drafting the bill was not a good speller, or misunderstood, and they meant you should not push mousse out of a plane . . . because that, absolutely, should be a crime. I personally have broken some archaic carnally based laws with my husband in several states. A few times there were sirens in the distance . . . but they never found us.

      Make sure you bring along your very own pair of cuffs, too. I’m sure he’d appreciate it. I have to agree – he is pretty sexy. Next time with your husband, and you hear sirens coming for you – just imagine it’s him coming for you. It will make even better. PS-I wish I had the balls to do that stuff lol

    I’m Australian and the only hot pink pants I’ve seen here were worn by gay men in Oxford St at Mardi Gras. My husband is a lawyer and he said he’s never had to defend anyone accused of that! You might have started a revolution here!

    • Blair (The Shameful Sheep) says:

      Haha aw. I hope he never has to defend someone for that reason. What a waste of time lol. And, I’m secretly happy hot pink pants aren’t common in Australia. I got nervous and thought that was the “in” thing over there. Talk about a crime against fashion.

    illegal to shoot any type of game from a moving vehicle…unless its a whale….what? Like what was the thought process there? I guess a boat right? Boats move and are used to hunt whales? Captain Ahab would approve

    In Ohio we can’t fish for whales on Sunday which is a real pain in the ass because Sunday is my only time to fish. We are also not allowed to get fish drunk. Bummers all around.

    The slightly scary thing is that these probably became laws because people actually tried doing them. What kind of evil person pushes a moose out of a plane?! And more importantly – HOW did they do this? So many questions.

  8. gertloveday says:

    Stay well away from Australia if you’re an under-age hypnotist, a kite-flyer, a shipwreck-looter, or someone who habitually uses a goat to pull a cart. And you’d better not slaughter or skin an animal on the road, or play a game “to the annoyance of another person.”

  9. The Farmer's Diet says:

    Less funny, more tragic: in the small town I grew up in, it is still technically legal to hang a black person if they are outside after midnight. Obviously that would never hold up in court, but the county ordinance was never officially repealed.

    What on earth is a public conveyance? I’m guess it might be a bus. Chocolate and females? What about males eating chocolate? Bonkers but hilarious.
