British Scorn American Laws

A couple of students from Cornwall, a peninsula at the southwestern corner of Britain, plan to travel across the US, violating as many laws as they can. The laws they plan to break are ones they found on the web sites like Some of these rules include:

  • Riding a bicycle in a swimming pool
  • Going whale-hunting in Utah
  • Hunting camels in Arizona
  • Cursing on a crazy-golf course
  • Sleeping in a cheese factory
  • Carrying a lunchbox down Main Street in Las Cruces, NM
They might just as easily stay closer to home. Britain has its own share of ridiculous regulations, such as:
  • It is illegal to be a drunk in possession of a cow
  • It is illegal for a woman to be topless in public except as a clerk in a tropical fish store
  • Excluding Sundays, it is perfectly legal to shoot a Scotsman with a bow and arrow
  • All steam locomotives are limited to 4mph on roads
  • A license is required to keep a lunatic
