5 Stupid Ways To Break The Law In Utah
We have a segment on The Mikey & The Mrs Show called "How To Stay Out Of Jail".
We read some of the weirdest and the most outdated laws. It is interesting to think that these laws came from somewhere. Someone had to have considered them a good idea at sometime.
For instance, in Salt Lake City, did you know it's illegal to walk down the street carrying a violin in a paper bag? Where did a law like that come from and what danger comes from carrying a violin in a paper bag? Here are 5 more weird laws that for some reason Utah decided were necessary at some point:
1) NO GUNPOWDER TO REMEDY HEADACHES
Was this actually a thing? And does it work? I'll try anything when I have a migraine.
2) NO FISHING WHILE ON HORSEBACK
If I've said it once, I've said it a million times. Leave your horse at home when you go fishing!
3) NO HIRING TROMBONE PLAYERS TO PLAY ON STREETS TO PROMOTE AN AUCTION.
I'm guessing every other instrument is considered okay. I don't know why the trombone was singled out.
4) NO SNOWBALLS (This is just in Provo though).
Luckily ski resorts in Utah don't have this law. So make sure you are near a ski resort if you want to throw a snowball.
5) NO DETONATING NUCLEAR WEAPONS
Aww shucks, this is what I was planning on doing this weekend! I definitely understand this being a law but wouldn't it be considered just common sense?
