It is against the law in Brooklyn, New York, for donkeys to sleep in bathtubs.
In Idaho you are not allowed to fish while sitting on a giraffe. In California you must not keep slugs as pets.

Yes, it’s the law—says so right on the state or city books.

Some of the more ludicrous laws in the history of our country come to light in this very funny and fascinating book for young citizens—citizens who have a special appreciation for the tyranny of stupid rules. Illustrated with wit and irony, this collection brings law to life and will have readers not only laughing but also thinking about their world in a new way.
