There are some very strange old laws in the U.S. For example, it’s illegal to drive blindfolded in Alabama. (Of course! If your eyes are covered, you can’t see! Do you need a law to stop people from doing it?) In Arizona, it’s illegal for a donkey to sleep in a bathtub. (But why would a donkey sleep in a bathtub? And why is that bad?) In Hawaii, it’s illegal to put a coin in your ear. (Are they worried that coins would hurt your ear?) In Montana, it’s illegal to raise rats. (Scientists use rats for experiments. Aren’t there are any scientists in Montana?) (by Prof. Douglas Jarrell)
