“In Baltimore, it is illegal to wash or scrub sinks no matter how dirty they get” If my OCD was in human form their eye would be twitching right now. “It is a violation of city code to sell chicks or ducklings to a minor within 1 week of the Easter holiday” Chicks are not toys, believe me, as someone who had chickens they grow up to be @ssholes, kiddos. “In Cumberland, you cannot keep your chickens with you in your hotel room” Is Benedict Cumberbatch the mayor in Cumberland? I think he should be. “In Ocean City, men may not go topless on the Boardwalk” There are some men you do not want to see topless… “In Rockville, it is illegal to remove a public building by writing on it” Okay y’all, I think I may be missing something because this law makes zero sense. More than usual.
