Dumb Laws, But Which Ones Belong To Texas? [QUIZ]

Old legal books Spanish law reports library Spain

We’ve all heard of and read about some pretty dumb laws. These dumb laws, that are somehow still on the books could land us in jail or at the very least, get us a ticket because they are still technically enforceable!

After reading about some of these seriously outdated laws, I’ve compiled a list, but which of them belong to Texas and which belong to other states (which seem to be just as ridiculous)? Go ahead, read through the list and then make a choice – Texas or other – and then scroll down to see how you did!

  • A program has been created in the state that attempts to control the weather.
  • It is illegal to take more than three sips of beer at a time while standing.
  • Bingo games cannot last more than 5 hours and played no more than 2 times per week.
  • The entire collection of books in the Encyclopedia Britannica is banned because it contains a formula for making beer at home.
  • Wire cutters can not be carried in your pocket.
  • Alcohol may not be sold during an emergency.
  • Babies may not be carried on the running boards of a car.
  • You cannot pump your own gas.
  • Prisoners who hurt themselves could serve an additional two years in jail.
  • It is illegal to sell one’s eye.

There you have it, ten dumb laws and the states they belong to. Of the ten, Texas has half of the dumb laws listed! Of the dumb laws listed above, I’m sure many of us wouldn’t mind joining the states of Oregon and New Jersey, by making illegal for us to pump our own gas!  We wouldn’t consider this a dumb law if someone else pumped our gas!  I lived in Oregon for a year-and-a-half and after pumping my own gas since driving at 16, it was hard to get used to, but I got used to it. And after having someone do it for a year and a half while living in Portland, when I moved back to Texas I kind of missed it!

Hope you had some fun with these silly laws, but don’t break the law no matter how silly it sounds to you, it was created for a reason. If you ever have questions about a certain law, you need to seek out legal advice from a qualified professional. The referenced laws on this website or the links to the law do not constitute legal advice and are used for entertainment and illustrative purposes only.
