“It is against the law to stand around any building without a good reason” I feel like drug dealers, prostitutes, and pimps would say they have a very good reason. “In International Falls, Cats are not allowed to chase dogs up telephone poles” The Mayors dog totally got chased up a telephone pole and then was super embarrassed so dog daddy mayor made it a law. “Any person who persuades another to enter a massage therapist business after 11:00 PM is guilty of a misdemeanor” What do you assume they are planning?? “In Virginia, You’re not allowed to park your goat on Main Street” I’m getting a whole “Who’s on first” style joke when people ask these people where they live. Virginia, Minnesota!
