Arizona is home to the jaw-dropping Grand Canyon, crazy desert wildlife, and very hot summers.
#1. Wearing A Mask On Halloween
Yup, believe it or not it is illegal for a group of two or more people to be masked on Halloween in New York. This law dates back to 1845 when farmers attacked police over wheat prices, and was revived in 2011 due to protesters wearing Guy Fawkes masks during Occupy Wall Street.
Most New Yorkers know about this one (not so sure about ducks). Least surprising at all, police haven’t enforced this for decades now. Chalk it up to overpopulation or laxness, but I know it’s because there aren’t enough pens in the world to issue that amount of tickets.
Essentially meant to curb unwanted flirting, the letter of this law only denotes the “flirting” part, and leaves out the “unwanted.” This grammatical loophole could cost you $25 if you’re not careful. Quite literally, get a room.
#4. Men Outside Of Their Home Must Wear A Matching Jacket And Pants
Step 1: Check yourself in the mirror.
Step 2: Stay in.
#5. Wearing Tight Pants
Here’s to hoping this never gets enforced. There is actually a law that prevents women from wearing “body hugging” clothing. This ranges from yoga pants to skinny jeans to cocktail dresses. Luckily everyone is so turned on that authorities forgive this, or maybe they just forget to write any tickets. That’s what forgive and forget means, right?
#6. One Must Not Talk To Anyone While In An Elevator
This law also states that one must have his/her hands folded in front of them while looking toward the door. Apparently before this law, the majority of elevator passengers flailed their arms as they spoke, frightening other passengers. This law was written into the books to stop riders accidentally hitting those around them when talking.
#7. Donkeys Cannot Sleep In Your Bathtub
Sorry NYC, but it looks like the good ol’ ‘donkey in your bathtub’ days will be little more than treasured memories from now on.
#8. Slippers Are Not To Be Worn After 10PM
We all knew this one, right?
#9. All Businesses Must Have Spittoons And Clean Them Every 24 Hours
Technically when paired with the “no public spitting” law, this makes variable sense. Although apparently only wine tasters got the memo.
Something to think about: Not in the too distant past someone’s job was to empty and clean these.
#10. A Person May Not Walk Around On Sundays With An Ice Cream Cone In His/Her Pocket.
Well I’m glad someone finally said something.
