Bizarre Utah laws [Nov. 13th, 2002|01:02 pm]
Peter Sheil
from a newsletter I get ...

Alcohol may not be sold during an emergency.

Individuals may not possess beer in containers larger than two
liters unless they are a retailer.
bit hard if you brew your own beer.

It is illegal to cause a catastrophe.
Does that include US Presidents I wonder?

It is against the law to fish from horseback.
The image of this had me giggling

It is illegal to detonate any nuclear weapon. You can have them,
but you just can't detonate them.
Yep, figures :) The gun lobby gone mad!

Birds have the right of way on all highways.
tweet tweet ... squash ... another truck failed to give way to an eagle gets flattened

It is a felony to persistently tread on the cracks between pav-
ing stones on the sidewalk of a state highway.

It's legal for restaurants to serve wine with meals, but only
if you ask for the wine list.

It is considered an offense to hunt whales.
Pardon me here, my georgaphy is less than perfect, but which coast is Utah on?
The central bit with no coast I thought. Any Utah residents here seen a whale

No one may have sex in the back of an ambulance if it is re-
sponding to an emergency call.
I guess 'cos the lights and the siren will put you off :)

Peace - even to those of you from or in Utah

Hee hee! I hadn't even seen a couple of those! And it is true about the wine list in restaraunts too. They aren't supposed to advertize they have alcohol. And in the county south of here, no store can sell any alcohol from midnight Sat. to 7 AM Mon. You know, 'cos alcohol is controlled by satan. *smirk*

I have *never* seen a whale. But there is a folk song about whale watching in Idaho while fishing on the Snake River.... :)
