Not so surprising surprise 24 11, 4:53am

@Monogreen Nearly all such dumb law lists notably fail to cite any actual source, aside from perhaps other dumb law lists.

I know the North Carolina one is believed to be a reference to a 150 year old case where someone was fined for disturbing the peace over some apparently horrible singing, a charge that was overturned on appeal.

Others are only dumb sounding because they are weirdly specific statements of perfectly sensible laws. Hunting camels is illegal, because camels aren't recognized as game animals.
