This one is not a wacky law--it is just amusing and it is law related.
In North Dakota, two men sued a railroad comopany for 10K. Their train was behind schedule and got them to the racxtrack too late to collect the winnings from the daily double.

In Memphis, Tennessee, a woman is not to drive a car unless a man warns approaching motorists or pedestrians by walking in front of the car that is being driven.

I wonder how many husbands were run down doing that?

Mansfield, Louisiana

“Pull ‘em up or pay up.”

A new law took effect in Mansfield on Sept. 15.
Sagging pants that expose ones underwear will pay a $150.00 fine or 15 days in the lockup. The law was voted in without a whimper.

Before I was married, I used to watch my future father-in-law fall asleep while he was doing his "bookeeping". The man worked SO hard--he was an independent fruit and wholesale vegetable dealer and was up at 2am to pick the best fruit/veggies at the Boston fruit market. He would be on the road making deliveries and then he had to do his "bookeeping" and was up until 7 or 8pm doing that. Anyway, he asked me to help him stay awake. I told him I would spray him with the flower spritzer. He didn't believe I would actually do it. But I did. His wife and son thought it was hilarious. He didn't fall asleep doing the bookeeping very often after I started spraying him. I think he was shocked that his son's girlfriend would actually spray him but I did. I was just 18 so that's my excuse, I guess. The statement about the water spray just brought back that memory--a good one

Yep, that's exactly where it is. Our mailing address was actually Red Level, though we lived in the Loango community. The tournament is the World Domino Championship held every year in Andalusia. It draws quite a crowd!

My hubby was one of the organizing members of the Loango Volunteer Fire Department. He was also Asst. Chief and Treasurer. Ahhh .... the stories we have from those days!

Take care,

Carolyn,
Is Loango near Red Level ? I remember going through there with my dad a few times. I was still pretty young during that year span so I don't remember a tournament though do love to play Dominoes these days.

I live in the Mobile area now.

Not exactly a law, but something we ran across while we were living in Alabama:

In Covington County, if a woman throws or pours a glass full of water on her sleeping husband, it's absolute grounds for divorce!

I sometimes threaten my hubby with the squirt-bottle of water I keep handy for the cats. You reckon that would fall under the same heading?

I'm just now catching up with my emails and reading this wonderful thread, so forgive me for the multiple posts which are sure to follow as I read what each of you has said already!

PaleOrchid -- From Brewton??!! We lived in Loango for 4-1/2 years (1983-1987)!! Small world!! Did ya ever play in the domino tournament? My hubby and a friend did. They were such novices and didn't know what they were doing that they actually won their first round of play! Problem was .... it was against the previous year's champion, who was about tied in a knot!! He was so mad at being beaten by two young fellows! It knocked him right out of any chance for the championship that year!

Take care,
Carolyn
