  • In Boise, Residents may not fish from a giraffe’s back
  • Idaho Falls, Idaho: If you’re 88 years of age or older, it’s illegal for you to ride your motorcycle
  • Idaho state law makes it illegal for a man to give his sweetheart a box of candy weighing less than fifty pounds
  • Riding a merry-go-round on Sundays is considered a crime
  • You may not fish on a alligator’s back
  • You can’t buy or sell chickens after sundown without the sheriff’s permission
  • You may not walk down the street with a red-tipped cane
  • In Coeur d Alene, If a police officer approaches a vehicle and suspects that the occupants are engaging in sex, he must either honk, or flash his lights and wait for three minutes before approaching the car
  • In Eagle, Dirt may not be swept from ones house into the street

  • Public displays of affection in Idaho are limited to under 18 minutes
  • The state of Idaho forbids you from fishing off the back of a camel

They take their potatoes very seriously. Tamarack vampire hunters really have to jump through some hoops. Frankly I think that Coeur d Alene Police are very thoughtful, you just better hope you hear that horn or see the headlights flash. Thoughts… would it be CPD, CAPD, or CDAPD on their uniforms??

Questions of the night:
  1. What are your best theories to explain these weird laws?
  2. If you were dictator for a day, what law would you create?
  3. If you were dictator for a day, what law would you abolish?
