omgoodness, I'm blogging again!

Dear readers, I know it has been a VERY long time since i posted anything on my blog. Life as you all know sends us many curve balls and challenges. I finally got a computer that works and have decided that i am going to blog again! I know, miracles do still occur! I will once again be searching the wacky world of strange and weird laws and warning labels. I will find those stupid signs posted around the world. I want to beg you to come back and explore the idiotic things we are expected to follow by lawyers, companies and public officials. Comments and suggestions are not only welcome, but would be GREATLY appreciated! I promise to to try and make you giggle and smile! Hope you read me soon! love, janene

About Me

My photo

mom, wife, jeeper, motherinlaw, and crippled old granny.

You said I could!

We have all had a haircut we regret! If you live in Michigan you may regret it for an entirely different reason! Michigan actually has a law making it illegal for a married woman to get her haircut without her husband's written permission, REALLY? There are a few times I wish someone would have forbidden me to cut my hair, but I probably would have done it anyway! I wonder if Michigan also has a law that married men can't grow a beard without his wife's permission. ...probably not!!!!


My dream was to play the piano, but I'm from Iowa.

The handicapped are still not treated equally in every state! If you live in the state of Iowa and long to be a concert pianist, you better have both arms! There is an Iowan law that states," all person's with just one arm who desire to perform on the piano in public, most do so without any monetary compensation ".  If they play really well they should be paid double!


I gotta get this done, fishin season is a startin soon!

This law comes to us from New Jersey. "it is unlawful for any male to knit during fishing season". What if they don't like to fish, what if knitting is their passion! Let them knit those caps scarves and socks!


we are not puppets!

This law is from New York City, NewYork. "It is strictly prohibited to put on a puppet show in a window".   I'm sure there is probably a good reason why this is illegal, but, aren't there worse things to worry about New Yorker's?


It all natural and good for you! YUCK!

The "environmental" movement has gone a bit too far! So far in fact California had to add an amendment to their Health and Safety code. Animal rights activist and environmentalists are crusading against, MILK! The animal rights people say keeping and breeding cows just to keep them giving milk is cruel, and the environmentalists say that all the burping farting and pooping cows do contribute to global warming! Their solutions, drink HUMAN milk! This cause has even got a health nut group on board! Yuck! California health and safety code #1647 reads, "the procurement, processing, distribution or use of human milk for the purpose of human consumption is considered to be a rendition of service rather than a sale of human milk." You see, it is illegal to sale ANY part of a human body, even fluids that come out of them! The weirdos in California now have a way to enjoy their....ew, milk, and not break the law! YUCK YUCK YUCK! !!


American Idol, no son, jail!

As another season of American Idol is coming to an end, I think back to all the "talented" singers from all over the country. They should have tryouts in North Carolina! They passed a law that actually makes it illegal to sing off key! So it would stand to reason only GOOD singers would try out, unless the dream is so big the bad singers would risk going to jail! OF COURSE THEY WOULD! Its American Idol!


Bark, I do!

Alabama has a law that makes it mandatory to commit incest when marrying. Alabama law reads. "it is unlawful to marry any animal that is not already related." So if puppy love is in the air, look for it in the litter box or kennel where you live!


I told you to stop lady!

In the beautiful state of Hawaii looking at beautiful exotic birds is a treat, but don't get too close! It is unlawful to ANNOY any BIRD in any public park! So be sure not to bug the birds or you will be the one caged!


They are NOT thinking about ice skating!

This is another, DUH law. In the city of Moline, Illinois it is illegal to ice skate on Riverside pond during the months of JUNE, JULY, and AUGUST. Okay, my knowledge of places in Illinois is very limited, but unless someone proves otherwise I doubt its cold enough to freeze a pond in the summer!


I get nothing, and still have to feed the dog!

Housewife, a very rewarding and very hard job with very little pay, especially in Illinois divorce court! A provision regarding property division in Illinois divorce court stipulates that cases where the wife has not contributed financially to the marriage, she has no right to marital assests. If a husband claims she was a lousy house keeper, the judgment can be she did not work therefore she is owed nothing. It is also stated that in cases where the couple and child care were shared roughly equally, the homemaker contributions of each spouse canceled each other out. REALLY! Give me a break!


Now who is master!

California, land of sun, stars, and morons writing laws. In the city of Belvedere, California a city ordinance reads, "No dog shall be in a public place without it's MASTER on a leash". Perhaps this isn't a grammer error, maybe the dogs in Belvedere are the smarter mammals, just perhaps. ...


Hope there's no hostile Indians around ma!

Spring, a time to clean out all the old junk cluttering up our lives. Montana law makers may wanna do away with some old laws in their book! Montana still has this law on the books, "if you are in a covered wagon and there are three or more Indians around your wagon you have the right to kill them." The way lawyers work these days I could see this becoming a defense for some jerk!


Give me the money or I shoot you then me!

Times are tough, even thieves have had to resort to cheaper weapons. The state of Louisiana is on top of it though! Louisiana law states, "it is unlawful to shoot a bank teller with a water pistol while in the act of robbing a bank." To be fair it is also illegal to rob a bank with any means in Louisiana also, but I'm sure a defendant with a crafty lawyer at one time tried to get a Guy off using the, "it was just a watergun judge," defense!


Here's your sign!

This is a "duh" law. Alabama law states, "if an animal control officer is in uniform, it signifies to the public that he is an animal control officer." Duh! I didn't know that! So glad they made that clear! In the words of Bill Engvall, "here's your sign!"


These people always throw away yummy stuff!

Vegans, Vegitarians, Omnivores, Garbageatarians? To each his own, but if you're looking for dinner in a garbage can in Texas, be careful, there is a law! Texas law reads, "you MUST ask permission to Eat someone's garbage". So knock on the door, ask permission and dig in!


If you must fart , don't let it be heard!

Flatulence. We all have it, it is as natural as breathing. In Mississippi though you can be arrested for farting, unless of course it is of the silent but deadly variety! Mississippi law states, "if you are compelled to make loud farting noises in church you will be removed and arrested". I guess they prefer to have them smelled and not heard, I prefer the opposite!


And you think texting and driving is bad.

This law from Alabama is one of those laws that you know must have a story behind it. Someone without common sense must have tried this with dire consequence and not been punished because there wasn't a law against it. Well, now there is! In Alabama it is illegal for a person to DRIVE a motor vehicle while BLINDFOLDED. I am so glad they have seen to it their morons are now proctected from themselves, and saving the rest of us too! Thankyou Alabama lawmakers!
