These quote were taken from "Laugh in the Law Hee-Haw published in 1939. I happen to have these old clippings.
1.According to an old statute in Virginia the third failure to attend church on Sunday was punishable by death. A bit harsh :)
2. A Massachusetts ordinance required that all dogs should have their hind legs tied during the month of April. Why :)
3. In Boston it was illegal to keep a dog more than 10 inches in height.
4 In Ohio it was unlawful to ride a jackass at the rate of more than 6 miles an hour. Was the jackass consulted :)
I laughed, I hope you will too.
