Crazy Florida Laws
1. It is illegal to show your breast in a topless dance.
I guess in this case dancing topless must mean dancing without a hat.
2. Babies are not allowed to to nude on the beach.
They must be concerned about all over sunburn.
3. It is illegal to sell your children.

At least they're dressed.
5. It is illegal to sing in a public place while attired in a swimsuit.
6. It's illegal for you to tow anything on a bike.
If you can't tow with a bike why do they sell small trailers made to be towed by a bike?
7. You may not fart in a public place after 6 P.M.
I guess its ok before 6 P.M.
8. It's illegal to walk slowly in Hialeah.
Ok guys, pull over your walking below the speed limit.
9. Women may be fined for falling asleep under a hair dryer, as can the slaon owner.
Get out the No-Doze ladies.
