We have another really good one in Nebraska. In the town of Blue Hill, it is illegal for a lady wearing a hat to eat an onion in public. I actually had to do some work there once- my coworkers dared me to wear a hat and eat an onion in public to see what would happen.

I didn't do it... 'cause eating an onion just doesn't sound all that appealing to me... but I'm still curious to see what would happen. And where the hell that law came from in the first place.

Really? Wow. :lol: It's baffling how specific some of these are...like the one I posted up there about how in one place you can't use a goldfish to entice someone to play bingo. Can you give them someother kind of fish instead? Can you give them a gold fish to entice them to go bowling? Why that specific combination? :huh: And most importantly, why is it illigal? :lol:

They won't give me a plastic bag at the grocery store for free anymore because plastic bags will kill the planet. But for 50 cents they will sell me a thicker plastic bag because that bag will never end up in a landfill somewhere or around the neck of a sea turtle.

A fine little girl she waits for me
She's as plastic as she can be
She paints her face with plastic goo
And wrecks her hair with some shampoo
Plastic people
Oh, baby, now you're such a drag
