Weird Washington Laws - better known as "WHY would I live here?"



  • It is mandatory for a motorist with criminal intentions to stop at the city limits and notify the chief of police as he enters the town
  • All lollipops are banned
  • An old Washington law sent duelists to jail for 10 years (assuming I guess that they didn't loose the duel!)
  • In Auburn: Men who deflower virgins, regardless of age or marital status, may go to jail for 5 years.
  • In Seattle it's illegal to carry a concealed weapon over 6 feet in length
  • There is another law stating it's illegal to have sex with a virgin under ANY circumstances
  • It's illegal to sleep in an outhouse without the owner's permission
  • It's illegal to paint polka dots on the American flag
  • People may not buy a mattress on Sunday
  • In Seattle it's illegal to carry a fishbowl or aquarium onto a bus because the sound of sloshing water may disturb other passengers
  • In Spokane it's illegal to buy a TV on Sunday
  • You need a license to sell condoms
  • In Wilbur it's illegal to ride an ugly horse
  • Washington doesn't allow fake wrestling
  • When 2 trains come to an crossing, neither shall go until the other has passed

Ok, I know of many more but these all struck me tonight...

Sweet! I am moving there ASAP. I'm pretty sure that Charlie is still a virgin at age 2...if we move she shall forevermore remain one. :o) Or at very least, I can have her partner's ass thrown in jail if I wish.

It's Washington - we don't need more people I guess!

It's a little conflicted but just make sure you have a license to sell condoms, only come here after you have deflowered all the virgins you need to, and if you intend to deflower someone anyway just tell the local police force as you come into town...
