Weird laws that are unbelievable but exist in Kentucky

Kentucky was founded in 1792, and at the time, many of these laws might have made sense, but now they seem outdated and bizarre. However, they still exist, whether because they have been forgotten or maybe for a reason we may never know. Yet here are the weirdest laws of Kentucky

If you are a citizen of Kentucky, you must shower/bathe at least once a year. In today's time, most of us shower daily or every other day. It appears irrelevant and bizarre.

It is illegal for a woman to marry the same man more than three times in Kentucky. I have heard that people get divorced and remarried. However, if you want to try for a fourth, you would have to go to another state.

You are sober unless you can not stand up. It makes you wonder why and how long this law has been active. Since Kentucky has very strict laws when it comes to drinking and driving.

It is illegal to keep an ice cream cone in your pocket. It originated from travelers trying to capture other people's horses, and they did this by putting an empty ice cream cone in their back pocket. It still exists today.

Hunting from a moving vehicle, including trucks, helicopters, or scooters/motorcycles, is illegal. Yet there is an exception to the law if you have spotted a whale. It would never happen as Kentucky is landlocked; what a bizarre law.

Women in Owensboro can not buy a hat without their husbands' permission. However, once the husband approves the hat, the woman can make the purchase.

It is illegal to throw flowers at a public speaker in Kentucky. It also applies to eggs, do not throw eggs or flowers at speakers in Kentucky; you will be violating a law.

It is illegal for anyone to handle any reptile in connection with any religious services or gatherings. If caught, they could be fined up to $100.

Luckily after living in Kentucky for many years, I have not broken any of these laws.
