“Horses may not be kept in bathtubs” But at least donkeys can in this state. “A permit must be obtained to fire a missile” God I’d hope so. “A railroad may not remove itself from a town of more than 500 people” It’s always a worry that a railroad will get up and walk away. “Nothing must be sold on Sundays except light bulbs” Because light bulbs are more important than baby formula or diapers… ” It is against the law and a capital offense to inadvertently kill someone while trying to commit suicide” So please don’t do it?

QOTN: What are your best theories to explain these weird laws?
