The top 5 weirdest laws in America

Updated on April 24, 2016

5.Wearing fake mustaches in church

Believe it or not, in Alabama it's illegal to wear a fake mustache in church for the purpose of causing laughter. It's not really clear how or when this law came in effect or even why it was needed. This law however, is still in effect today and even has an online partition trying to get it removed.

4. Keeping an ice cream cone in your back pocket

In Kentucky this is actually a law. This law was written sometime in the 1800's and has managed to stay on the law books to this date. Not much is know about this law and the only thing people come up with is that men used to use as a way to steal horses, why you ask? Well, because apparently a horse followed you home of it own volition and you decide to keep it,it wasn't considered stealing.

3. If two trains happen to meet on same track,neither are allowed to go until the other has proceeded.

So I guess this is what Gandalf meant when he said, NONE SHALL PASS! This law doesn't seem to make much sense, because for either train to proceed someone has to go first but then I guess they would get a fine if they did? I'm not entirely sure what the punishment for breaking this law is, all I know is that it's stupid and is in definite need of review.

2.You may not sell toothpaste and a toothbrush to the same customer on a Sunday

In road island is yet another ridiculous law. Yes you read the subtitle right, it is indeed illegal to sell toothpaste and a toothbrush at the same time on a Sunday in Rhode Island. You may wonder why this law even exist in the first place well...so would many others as well only thing I could find on this law is that it's still on the books today and doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.

1.It's illegal to harass big-foot

If you see big foot anywhere in Washington you'd best be leaving it alone. If you are caught harassing big foot you could be facing some serious penalties. You can serve up to 10 years in prison for harassing big foot as well being fined up to $100,000 ...damn. Why this law even exist is beyond anyone...I smell government conspiracy...well that or someone was bit wasted when they put this in either way it's stupid, but that's just my opinion.

These are just some of the weird laws that exist in the american justice system and the ones I personally found to be the strangest. Comment below and tell me what you think about my picks and tell me if you think I should make another list.

Do you think that any of these laws should be removed from the american law books?
