We have all heard of some weird outdated laws in different states, but Idaho takes the cake: Idaho There are so many bizarre laws in Idaho that we couldn't just choose one. Not only can you not fish from the back of a giraffe or camel, but buying your significant other candy in a box that weighs less than fifty pounds is illegal. If that's not enough, in Pocatello, Idaho, you may not be seen in public without a smile.

I was looking at the weirdest laws for each state and when I got to Idaho I just stopped.

Wow, those are real crazies. Do they even make 50 lb. boxes of candy? lol

They sure are picky about fishing....

Pocatello seems a lovely place.

But did you know Monsters can't enter Urbana, Illinois? I guess Godzilla will have to walk around them, or... he'll just keep on walking, break the law and good luck putting him behind bars.

Supposed intellegent state legislators actually proposed, then voted and passed those laws. Some long ago, but not that long ago.

"In Memphis, Tennessee, it is illegal for a woman to drive a car unless there is a man either running or walking in front of it waving a red flag to warn approaching motorists and pedestrians."

If that's true, then it's not even funny. lol

The funny thing is trying to figure out why they created a law like that. Someone actually put ice cream on their pockets and they had to ban it? xD

I'm pretty sure the woman driving law is not longer valid.

lol, yes, it's funny to try to imagine the reason. I wonder if the reasons for most of these odd laws were so specific, that today they are out of context and people don't even remember the original reason anymore.

It's illegal in Wilbur, Washington, to ride an ugly horse.

@Carla That's a pony. And it is adorable

Whatever! It's still illegal to ride it!! :)

@Marianne Lol - isn't it rather too small to be ridden - except for small children?...

My sister just lost her little shetland. Had her since she was a weaned foal.
She pulled a cart and carried children.
She was 34 years old.
Family, really.

Though it is sad to lose a furry friend, it must have been wonderful for your sister to have her for 34 years.
Shetland ponies are known to be strong, robust and excellent friends for children - and adults.

lol.

The law works in mysterious ways. We never know what terrible side-effects those seemingly useless laws might be preventing. :P

Fifty pounds of candy... maniac smilie

But elsewhere in the world, there are also more or less strange laws, although some rules are justified, like running out of gas on a highway:
