Top 10 stupid state laws - Arizona

By +Brad Naylor

Due to the success of the Rhode Island Dumb Laws post, I have decided to make it a recurring event, at least until I run out of States. Since I am running these in no particular order, the next State to get it's dumb laws scrutinized is Arizona. The state of Arizona has many dumb laws, but it also has one very smart one... No Daylight Savings Time, so no winding the clocks forward or backward twice a year.

Stupid Laws - Arizona
Stupid Laws for Stupid... umm, never mind

Here are my Top Ten Stupid Laws from Arizona. Pay attention just in case you find yourself in 'The Grand Canyon State'.
  • Hunting camels is prohibited.
  • The wearing of suspenders is prohibited.
  • If you bother the cottontails or bullfrogs, you will be fined.
  • Cutting down cactuses is not permitted could land you 25 years in prison.
  • Anyone caught stealing soap must wash himself with it until it is all used up.
  • Donkeys cannot sleep in bathtubs.
  • You may not have more than two dildos in a house.
  • No more than six girls may live in any house.
  • Women may not wear pants.
  • When being attacked, you may only protect yourself with the same weapon that the other person possesses.
Before you email me, 'cactuses' is an accepted plural of cactus.

Gandalf and his camel
"I thought it said 'Humping Camels is Prohibited'"
Once again we asked Gandalf about his opinion of these stupid laws. He was puzzled at the total stupidity of some of them, but stood entirely by the first one about not hunting camels. "Camels, just like dogs, are man's best friend. Especially those men from the Middle East Earth."

"I think the reason that donkeys cannot sleep in bathtubs is from the large number of people caught stealing soap, occupying most of the bathtubs in Arizona. I thought people who stole soap usually made a clean getaway... (sigh) at least Bilbo laughed."

"Talking of Bilbo, how is it that you can only have a maximum of two per household? Especially when the limit on girls per house is six. Are they supposed to take turns, or thrill two birds with one stone (wink) if you know what I mean."

"What happens when you are attacked by someone with a Fire Whip? How many Arizonians have one of those around the house? In Arizona it would be more reasonable to attack someone with a golf club, but would the defender need to match the loft of the club? Would it be reasonable to defend oneself with a 3 iron if your assailant is wielding a sand wedge?"

Thanks Gandalf, remind me to book you as the entertainment for our next company party.

Please share more stupid laws in the comments section below and let me know which state you want to see next.
