From the Publisher:

It is illegal in California to trip a horse for entertainment. Funeral directors in Nevada can be arrested for using profane language in the presence of a "dead human body." In Washington, it is illegal to catch fish by throwing rocks at them, but you can use explosives. Senseless statutes like these are the often hysterical fodder for this irreverent skewering of our legal system. Lawyer Lance Davidson uses a series of humorous short takes to reveal actual ludicrous laws, bizarre legal decisions, and entertaining anecdotes that demonstrate just how quirky the law can be.

From the Back Cover:

Did you know that . . .

In Maine it is illegal to catch a lobster with your bare hands?

A Kentucky law specifies that you must remove your hat if you come face-to-face with a cow on the road?

Arizona has enacted a "veggie hate crimes act" that makes disparaging its produce a crime?

Who says the law must always make sense? This delightful new book proves beyond a reasonable doubt just how absurd our laws can be. Ludicrous Laws and Mindless Misdemeanors takes a hilariously irreverent look at our legal system, featuring downright logic-defying decisions, preposterous defenses, and scores of silly statutes that pepper our nation's law books. Here's the whole truth and nothing but on laughable lawsuits, judicial jokesters, and classic courtroom capers.
