Detonating a nuclear device within the city limits results in a $500 fine.

Elementary schools may not host poker tournaments.

Toads may not be licked.

It is illegal to set metal balloons afloat in the air.

All persons wishing to keep a rhinoceros as a pet must obtain a $100 license first.

HAHAHA! IDIOTS!! HAHA

If someone comes to your house, at any time of day or night, and asks to come in and use the toilet it is illegal to refuse them.
