A hilarious collection of 101 real state laws from across the USA, by the creators of the successful website, 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. Nowhere else could one learn that, for instance, - In New Mexico 400 words of 'sexually explicit material' from Romeo and Juliet is outlawed - In Massachusetts you can spend a month in jail for frightening a pigeon - In Kentucky you may not dye rabbits funny colours or have a religious ceremony involving a reptile
