I've always wondered what triggered some of the former politicians to put some of the laws we have in Michigan in motion. I wanted to do some investigating and find out just how dumb our state laws can get. I compiled a pretty interesting list of what I feel are the silliest, moronic and flat out stupid laws. Thanks to dumblaws.com this is what I found. Let's keep score!

1. Cars may not be sold on Sunday-  This is really important. Don't let me catch you doin' this.
2.There is a 3 cent bounty for each starling and 10 cent bounty for each crow killed in any village, township, or city in the state. (Repealed, 2006)- Now what am I gonna do for extra cash?
3.It is illegal to kill a dog using a decompression chamber.- Well I don't hurt animals, own a dog or a decompression chamber so I think I'm safe.
4. Putt-putt golf courses must close by 1:00 AM.- You're gonna facing hard time if you don't finish your shot quick.
5. Persons may not be drunk on trains- So I guess I'll just die to pass the time.

Those are some pretty silly laws. I will say the best one I saw though is a national law stating, "Bear wrestling matches are prohibited." I guess my weekend just opened up.
