    #7 is my Christmas card for 2011 lol

  • Frankie

    Good to know. Thanks chive!

  • Spence

    #6 Would you?

    • Los

      As long as that hair wasn't on the back then Oh yea!

    #7 I think a lot of babies are born between November and December is because of the amount of people who make love on Valentine's Day.

    • Crystal

      #7 was talking about conceptions, not births 🙂

    • Sugar

      It has to do with the fact that it is cold outside and the couple has nothing better to do. It happens in Florida when a hurricane goes through.

      • fnaah

        Not quite, because the same statistic is true in Australia. People just like to get it on during the holidays.

    • Captain12pk

      I have one conceived on St Patrick's Day. December 1st.

      • Justin Hall

        St. Patrick's Day? Makes sense. You were clearly bombed out of your skull if you think December 1st is St. Patrick's Day.

        • ttmab

          I think he means born on Dec. 1st.

    #4 – illigal?

    • Sizzle

      I hope it was spelled that way on purpose. "Illigal" is how they would pronounce it in Pittsburgh.

  • Mitch

    Good Post Chive, keep these ones up!!

  • chrisdg74

    #4 – But apparently it's OK for NFL quarterbacks to rape women in Pittsburgh?

    • Jason

      His alleged rapes happened in Nevada and Georgia, not in Pittsburgh. So I guess he's aware that it IS illegal in Pittsburgh…

      • chrisdg74

        I know that. My point was that he is 'employed' in Pittsburgh and the residents have no issue with his transgressions.

        • qteam3d

          it's illegal in Pittsburgh, just not morally wrong.

        • Adam

          Considering he wasn't found guilty, what are we to do?

    • Sizzle

      Yes, but as long as someone can throw a football, they're allowed to get away with murder. I'm looking at you Ray Lewis; Michael Vick.

      • RicoSan80

        Yeah, as much of a fan as I am of Ray, I did think it odd how quickly his involvement in a murder was dismissed when he won a Superbowl.

      • Adam

        Wait, who did Michael Vick kill?

        Or are we calling dog fighting murder?

        • ttmab

          Metaphor, dude.

      • HANK

        Ehhh I dont think Ray Lewis is very good at throwing the ball since he's not even on the offense

    • Corey

      can't rape the willing.

  • Jason

    I always remember the adage: If there's a law for it, apparently it was a problem at some point…. o.0

  • A BiPolar Guy

    #2 – probably violates animal abuse laws in any locality

  • A BiPolar Guy

    #3 any noise that loud would qualify as disturbing the peace, so that's true most places
    sadly, because I love them, most "odd laws" are just specific instances of common generic laws not really spelled out in the law. The claim is true, but misleading.
    e.g it is illegal in cleveland ohio to keep a 6 year old palomino horse in your back yard in the winter.
    Because it's simply illegal to keep any farm animal in the city. (with obvious exceptions like mounted police)

    Most of the real ones are not enforced, but in theory could be.

  • mipo2010

    #2, if the Boston Terrier wants a drink I say give it too him… He's already wearing a tux 24/7

  • RicoSan80

    In Baltimore it's illegal to be mean to a clam. Furry or otherwise.

    Also, adultery is subject to a $1 fine, but only for the woman.

  • captain12pk

    It is also illegal to sell a car in the State of Indiana. Privately or professionally on Sunday. I found this out the hard way.

    • Jules

      Same in Colorado, All car dealerships are closed for that reason…. I was close to doing that with a private sell once but the guy buying my Jeep reminded me to wait until Monday-
      I wonder what the punishment would be?

  • cousin eddie

    grosss, #9 anyone seen jackass when the fatass is on the treadmill?

  • Dom

    We have these useless laws as our hold music at work. We often get asked to put a caller back on hold. Not a bad thing if you're tech support.

    • Djz

      That's awesome!

  • Bisketz

    #4 is actually on top of a fridge, outdoors. Not in. Makes it even weirder.

    • HUH

      What in the Hell are you talking about Willis? She is clearly inside a fridge.

  • Diana Santos

    #10 could you find a pic of him more gay than this? lol

  • Diana Santos

    #3 that law should be approved all over the world! ^_^

  • Catence

    Thank you Chive, I feel smarter already.

  • Bob

    #7 is right on target. Anyone working in the medical field that deals with babies (lab, OB nurses, etc) will tell you that volume increases big time around September. I've seen it many times over the years.

  • OnlyInAJeep

    In Natchez, MS, it is illegal to give an elephant alcohol within the city limits.

  • Robert

    #9 made me nauseous

  • mikee

    I live in CICERO ILLINOIS! man its a small world

  • obitwo
