    So I was looking through my sons books with him and we were reading about strange laws. I immediately thought of a contest. Find the strangest law for your state. The winner gets a $5 gift certificate. Here is one for Ohio: It is illegal to fish for whales on Sunday. :ohmy: There goes my Sunday Funday!! Contest ends Wednesday at 10am. Can't wait to see what you guys find! You can post them on this thread.
