I Didn’t Know That Was Illegal in Washington State!
Now, mind you, these laws are outdated, and probably won't land you in the slammer, but still WHAT!? I would like to know who invented these laws, and for some of them, WHY did they seem necessary?
5 Washington State Laws That Will Make You Say "Wait, why?!"
1. Lollipops are banned.
While this could be a myth, legislation stays silent on the matter. So it begs the question, "How many lick to get to the center?" We can't legally answer that.
2. You cannot pretend your parents are rich.
But what if someone's definition of "rich" is different than another person's definition?
3. No person may walk about in public with the common cold.
"I can't come in, I have a cold. That would require walking into "public.""
4. Harassing Bigfoot/Sasquatch is a felony.
No bullying, ya bully!
5. You cannot buy meat on Sunday.
Whoa, wait a minute... Does this mean I have a warrant out for my arrest? "Officer! I only had one day to go to WinCo!"
6. You cannot sleep in an outhouse without the owner's permission.
But the outhouses are usually so small, how do you sleep in one?? Standing?? I mean to each their own, but I'd at least want 2ply for a pillow.
Ok, now that we know of some of the absurd laws in Washington State, let's try our best to stay in line.
