    It is legal to shoot a whale from a moving vehicle in Tennessee? Has this ever happened?

    Not that I'm aware of. I wonder if someone was being facetious and it was written down verbatim.


    Alaska, U.S.

    Something to keep in mind the next time you and your dog visit Alaska: tying Fido to the roof of your car will get you in trouble with the law man.
    That probably means someone did that at some point.


    Virginia's law is just gross.

    That is the stupidest list of strange road rules I have ever seen.

    And being in Australia, I don't know why they are under the impression that a taxi driver has to keep a bale of hay by law in their boot (trunk).
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    I second your at that. Unless it's the law in the Northern Territory or somewhere really rural.
    The ancient Egyptians worshipped cats as gods, and the cats have never forgotten.

    I'm sure they don't expect to find a bale of hay in the trunk. They are just making fun of an old law on the books that was never repealed. I remember reading that somewhere in the US women can marry their house. I'm quite sure it was put in to protect women when they were left out of inheritances for being female. The law isn't needed now but it never was repealed. Someone could essentially marry their house and it would be legal.

    Gives new meaning to the word "housewife."

    So could they get the marriage annulled if it wasn't consummated?

    I laughed at the question then thought that it's actually a good one. I wonder what they did if they met a man they wanted to marry. The article didn't explain that part.
