California happens to be the most scenic stretch of road in America, from the Mojave Desert to the redwood forest — but despite the layback reputation of the Golden State, California certainly can be particular when it comes to frogs.
If you must, you can have as many leaping frogs for your frog-jumping contest as you want. But if any of them die, you cannot eat them. You’ll need to go to Oregon if you want to do that!
Arizona Is a Fan of Pearly Whites
Despite the natural beauty of Arizona's canyons and deserts, this state also has some strange laws that forbid men and women from smiling if they have missing teeth! Now that just seems a little discriminatory!
Of course, when we look at the time this law was ordained, it came way back from the times of the Wild West, in a bid to prioritize dentistry and oral health care.
Arkansas Honking Can Land You Behind Bars
The 'Natural State' is a dark horse of sorts, for one thing. Someone desperately wanting a sandwich and honking profusely outside a sandwich store is probably to blame for this ridiculous law.
If you decide to honk your horn outside a sandwich shop after 9 pm, you'll be fined, or even worse, you could get locked up!
Colorado Is Strict About Couch Placement
Colorado has life figured out it seems, for one thing — the residents of the Centennial State know exactly where to keep their furniture.
This is definitely one of the most recent laws on our list as it came about in 2001, and the law that was passed stated a ban on the use and placement of indoor furniture outside, keeping couches and porches mutually exclusive.
Connecticut Will Not Stand Whistleblowers
Connecticut is known for quite a few things, like inventing the cheeseburger, Yale University, the beautiful foliage that occurs in the fall, and being home to the famous American cable sports channel, ESPN.
But in this land of steady habits and WASPy soccer moms, it remains illegal to blow a whistle outdoors. As weird as this law is, we couldn't find out how or even why it came about...
