Check Out Some of the Weirdest Laws in Texas
Every state has a set of laws that were passed for whatever reason but are completely irrelevant today. Texas is no exception. Thanks to texasheritageforliving.com, we now know some of Texas' dumbest or weirdest laws.
In Houston, it is illegal to sell Limburger cheese on a Sunday.
That's good to know. But the bigger question is - Who eats Limburger cheese?
In Texas, you must give oral or written notice 24 hours in advance of robbing someone.
So does the written notice of your theft then make it legal to rob said person? How in any way did someone think this would be a good idea?
If you sit on a sidewalk in Galveston, you could be fined $500.
Gotta keep yourself moving while in Galveston.
It is illegal in Mesquite to give your kids unusual haircuts.
Must explain why there are no mullets in the 8th grade in Mesquite.
The city of Richardson does not allow u-turns.
Yeah, if you miss your turn you gotta go the long way to get back to where you want to go.
In Texas, you can't ride your horse and buggy through a town square.
I don't think this would be enforced today. It would actually be a cool sight to see.
It is illegal to shoot a buffalo from the second story of a hotel.
Bet yet, we can shot wild hogs from a hot air balloon.
It's against the law to milk your neighbor's cow.
This makes me giggle. Maybe it's the scenario of someone willingly wanting to sneak around at night to milk random cows.
You have to look at all of these and wonder what happened to want to institute these laws. And to think that our tax money is going to someone who thought these up. (face palm ensues)
