The Weirdest State Law for Every State in the Union

Yahoo Travel was kind enough to dig through the volumes of laws our state legislators have been pushing through for centuries. Here’s a few of the highlights:

Alaska: “The state now has a law on the books that bars you from giving a moose a beer.”

Connecticut: “For a pickle to legally be called a pickle, it must bounce.”

Kentucky: “Dye a baby chick, duckling, or rabbit any hue of the rainbow in Kentucky and you’ll be charged a $100-$500 fine.”

Ohio: “Giving fish alcohol is prohibited here.”

And you thought politicians were useless…

You can see what the other states’ most ridiculous laws looked like here at Yahoo Travel.
