Bizarre ces lois!

Avec les affaires du moment, on se doutait bien que la justice américaine était complexe.

Mais pour notre grand bonheur, comme partout, elle a son lot de lois bizarres, vraiment bizarres...

Mon top 7 (parce qu'on est le 7 et que c'est l'anniv de mon papou!) :

7- A fine of $25 can be levied for flirting. This old law specifically prohibits men from turning around on any city street and looking "at a woman in that way." A second conviction for a crime of this magnitude calls for the violating male to be forced to wear a "pair of horse-blinders" wherever and whenever he goes outside for a stroll.
6- A person may not walk around on Sundays with an ice cream cone in his/her pocket.
5- Slippers are not to be worn after 10:00 P.M.
4- The penalty for jumping off a building is death.
3- It is against the law to throw a ball at someone’s head for fun.
2- Women may go topless in public, providing it is not being used as a business.
1- Citizens may not greet each other by “putting one’s thumb to the nose and wiggling the fingers”, genre comme ça:
