Did you know that in Indiana, it is illegal for a man to be sexually arounsed in public? Or that, in Rhode Island, a drug store can't sell toothpaste and a toothbrush to the same person on a Sunday? What about the Idaho law that outlaws women wearing heels of over three inches? Or that in Illinois there's a law prohibiting eavesdropping on your own conversation? You'll find these and ninety-seven other laws, some whimsical, others downright bizarre, all real, in the pages of YOU MAY NOT TIE AN ALLIGATOR TO A FIRE HYDRANT enhanced with forty witty and elegant original pen and ink drawings by Ward Schumaker. Each law is set off with a description, comments and a complete legal reference, making this a perfect book for the huge audience captivated by The Darwin Awards and Our Dumb Century.
