We thought we would take a break from all the seriousness of the world today and bring you a little spot of lightheartedness from our collection of bathroom reading. Here are some entertaining and senseless bits of trivia for the legally minded. These idiotic laws are excerpted from Uncle John’s Unsinkable Bathroom Reader (Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader).
- In Providence, Rhode Island, it’s illegal to sell toothbrushes on Sundays. (Toothpaste is OK)
- It’s against the law in Washington state to pretend that your parents are rich.
- Women in Corvallis, Oregon, are not legally permitted to drink coffee after 6:00pm
- By law, Washington drivers must carry an anchor to be used as an emergency brake.
