Here are some from Illinois.  I honestly don’t know if they are still actual laws, but that would be fantastic:

  • In Carbondale – No one may stand on the sidewalk on the 500 block of Illinois Ave.

  • In Joliet – Town fathers, reflecting the pet peeve of hearing their town’s name mispronounced ‘Jolly-ETTE’ when all local folk know it’s pronounced ‘Joe-lee-ETTE’, made pronouncing it Jolly-ette a misdemeanor, punishable by a $5 fine

  • In Chicago – Law forbids eating in a place that is on fire.

Here’s some from Toronto:

  • You can’t drag a dead horse down Yonge St. on a Sunday.

  • In toronto it is illegal to touch a birds nest or its eggs.
  • After 1912 in Toronto’s High Park you could not go tobogganing on Sunday. This law has since been repealed.

 From Canada:

  • Citizens may not publicly remove bandages.  
  • It is illegal for clear or non-dark sodas to contain caffeine.

  • If you find an injured migratory game bird in a National Park you are required, by law, to kill it. Not doing so will cost you $200.
