Do you live in Nothing, Arizona? You probably think it’s a joke, but at one point people lived there. There are over 50 completely absurd names of cities and towns in the United States of America, and even more overseas. Some were just odd, some not funny enough to make the cut, and I wasn’t allowed to put a few names on the list because they were… a little too off color (not in my mind, but the advisors’ minds).  I pulled out fifteen or sixteen town names and knocked it down to the ten that made the list following.  Here they are…

   In New York, the penalty for jumping off a skyscraper is death.  (“Oops, I “fell” off a skyscraper.”)

   In Connecticut, you can be stopped for biking over 65 miles per hour.  (“Steep hill, eh?”)

   In Kentucky, it is illegal to carry an ice cream cone in your pocket.  (“*Gasp!* is it legal if it melts?”)

   In California, elephants may only walk on Main Street, if they are on a leash. (“Will it fit on the sidewalk?”)

   In Mississippi, you can be arrested for disturbing a church service (What if you have to go to the bathroom?)

   In Wisconsin, butter substitutes may not be served in jails.  (“Sir, I was guarding the prisoners, when one attacked me with butter substitutes, and I was in the hospital for a month!”)

   In Arkansas, it is illegal to mispronounce its name (“’Are-kansas? Ark-a-saw?  Irken-sauce?’ ‘That’ll be 10 years for you, mister!’”)

   In Idaho, it is illegal to shower with the door of the bathroom open.  (What?  Will a robber come in and steal your clothes?)

   In New Hampshire, it is illegal to pick seaweed off the beach.  (Is it an endangered species?)

   In Alaska, it is illegal to push a moose out of a plane.  (“Mooses away!”)

   In New Jersey, it is illegal to wear a bulletproof vest while committing a murder.  (“20 years in jail!  Wait, was he wearing a bulletproof vest?  50 years!”)

   In Texas, it is illegal to convict someone to an unlucky number of years in jail.  (“’13 years in jail!’  ‘  Jail for you too!’  ‘Oops.’”)

   In Massachusetts, it is illegal to eat peanuts in church.  (“Peanuts! The food of Satan!!!”)

   As you can see, there are some pretty idiotic laws out there, though they never get enforced.  I wouldn’t advise trying them though.  (Especially the New York building thing.)  You never know…
