Wacky Laws

It's time for the annual wacky laws news stories to start coming out. Some are more entertaining than others, so I'll make this easy for you and just put the good ones up:

4. In Michigan, it is legal to kill a dog for attacking chickens, livestock or people, but you can't snuff the pooch in a high altitude decompression chamber or by electrocution.

5. In West Virginia, anyone who taunts someone who decides not to participate in a duel or who declines to accept a challenge is guilty of a misdemeanor and can be sent to jail for up to six months and fined up to $100.

6. In Kentucky it is illegal to sell, exchange, offer to sell or exchange, display, or possess living baby chicks, ducklings, or other fowl or rabbits that have been dyed or colored. It is also illegal to dye or color baby chicks, ducklings, fowl or rabbits. And unless they are at least two months old, the aforementioned animals must be sold in batches of six.

And the one that I don't consider wacky but actually think is a good idea that should be implemented elsewhere is:

2. Using profanity is against the law on playgrounds and in public parks in Columbia, Md.
