If you give it any thought, you'll see that some of the laws in our country are odd, if not downright bizarre. When you look at the laws of the states, things go completely out of hand! Take the state of North Dakota. Did you know that it's against the law to lie down and go to sleep while still wearing your shoes? YUP! These are some of the laws that have been enacted at one point or another in history. The vast majority of them are not even being enforced anymore!

According to the website Only in your State, if you are dancing while wearing a hat in the city of Fargo, or if you are wearing a hat at an event where dancing is taking place, you run the risk of being arrested and sent to jail.

No restaurant or bar in the state of North Dakota is allowed to serve beer and pretzels at the same time. Who thinks of these ridiculous ideas? It's hard to beat the combination of beer and pretzels. Whoever thought of this rule should definitely introduce themselves to me!
It is against the law in the state of North Dakota to house an elk in a sandbox in your backyard. Do you require a larger backyard or an increased quantity of sand? Already, this one is giving me a lot of trouble.
The owners and operators of underground coal mines in the state of North Dakota are required to provide an "adequate supply" of toilet paper for each individual toilet. This makes sense to me. After all, the job is not accomplished until all of the paperwork has been completed!
