Louisville, KY — Like many sports fans, I've always wanted to visit Muhammad Ali's hometown. Before visiting any new city, however, I usually familiarize myself with its basic laws.
In Louisville, it's illegal to fish with a bow and arrow. This law left me scratching my head. After all, the instant you pulled out a bow and arrow, wouldn't your laughing-out-loud friends scare the fish away?
And so, with that being said, here are ten weird laws in Louisville.
1. It's illegal to throw a flower at a public speaker.
After Tony Robbins gave a speech, the crowd gave him a standing ovation. One lady even threw a rose on stage.
A security guard rushed to her seat. "Ma'am, it's illegal to throw a flower at a public speaker!"
She covered her eyes. "So, so sorry. I thought the law prohibited throwing flour at a speaker, for fear it would make them feel like fried chicken."
4. It's illegal to force a person into a store in order to make a sale.
5. It's against the law to handle a snake in church.
Some guy seated in the pews glances at the sign. "Oh, handling snakes are illegal, huh?" he mumbles while abruptly kicking off his snake-skin boots. "That should solve any potential handling issues."
"Okay, Doug," the bride says. "This third jump across the broom better work out. If not, we'll have to date till death do us part."
8. It's illegal to toss your bucket of soapsuds onto the public street.
But feel free to drench the sidewalks with soap bubbles.
