Laws have existed since The Ur-Nammu law code, It is the oldest known, written about 300 years before Hammurabi's law code. When first found in 1901, the laws of Hammurabi (1792-1750 BC) were heralded as the earliest known laws. Laws have slowly changed over the years to work with change and to improve the system. Without law and order the planet would be in chaos and a very unsafe place to live. But in today's society some laws have not been updated or changed but left for hundreds of years, Some laws are just ridiculous and unbelievable to even exist these times but anyway let's have a look at some laws which should be scrapped for one's sanity.
In Mobile, Alabama, it is against the law to throw confetti or spray silly string.It's also illegal to sell it offer it or give it away and definitely dont try hiding it in your house because that's illegal too. The year 1965 was the last time this law was amended, To add insult to injury it's also illegal to spit or throw fruit skins on sidewalks maybe in case someone breaks a leg I guess.
This might actually be a sensible law but in Alabama state it is illegal to participate in Bear fighting matches, That's right you cant work promote or participate in a bear fighting match, phew thank god for that.
It's also illegal in Alabama to impersonate any member of the clergy, This 1975 law deals a fatal blow of a $500 fine and upto a year in jail for being found out. On Halloween I guess you will have to pretend to be an exorcist keep an eye out for the cops or your be arrested.

In Arkansas there is a law which still exists from 1800 which allows a husband to beat his wife but only once a month and no more. Ok but do I get a roll over if I dont use this months.
Best of all if the Aligator your keeping in the bathtub is on a roll things could get nasty and it could be a bad end for both, but dont tell the the authorities as it's completely illegal to keep your 230kg pet in the bathtub best tie it up in the bedroom instead.
This law makes sense but in Little Rock no driver may suddenly stop or start there vehicles at a McDonalds drive thru, Just in case you spill the coffee or choke on the Big Mac.
If by chance the McDonalds is near Salem Massachusetts don't think about driving to a hotel with your wife undressing to bare skin then sleeping the night because that is completely illegal as well.
I dont think this driver knew about the sudden start and stop policy nevermind.

Phew lucky for some.
