Laws in the Carolinas

Have you ever heard the phrase "This is a free country!" or "This is the best country in the world!". Doesn't it sound rather American to you?

Now, the US is a great country - great as in big and I'm sure it's great in other ways too. I've never been there so I couldn't really say. But I do know it can be a strange country. And strange countries have strange laws.

I thought we'd dip into the laws of some of the states which makes up the US of A. Let's start with the Carolinas - they've always seemed like such cute states.

Starting with South Carolina..

It is illegal to give or receive oral sex in South Carolina.
*not a state I plan on moving to*

By law, if a man promises to marry an unmarried woman, the marriage must take place.

It is considered an offense to get a tattoo.

It is perfectly legal to beat your wife on the court house steps on Sundays.

and my favourite...

Every adult male must bring a rifle to church on Sunday in order to ward off Indian attacks.

Continuing with North Carolina..

The mere possession of a lottery ticket is illegal in North Carolina and may result in a $2,000 fine.

It's against the law to sing off key.
*I'm screwed*

While having sex, you must stay in the missionary position and have the shades pulled.
*gently screwed*

All couples staying overnight in a hotel must have a room with double beds that are at least two feet apart.
*doesn't say you can't sleep in the same bed*

If a man and a woman who aren't married go to a hotel/motel and register themselves as married then, according to state law, they are legally married.
*how convinient, saves you all that hassle with a wedding dress and all... but they should write warning signs...*

and of course, yet again,

Oral sex is considered a crime against nature.

...someone very sexually frustrated must have made these laws...

    You don't have to go that far. Just tell the girl you like "I promise I will marry you". After all "the marriage has to take place". It's not like SHE has any say in it.

    "It is considered an offense to get a tattoo."
    I guess it's ok to get the tattoo elsewhere, or does it say that it's actually an offense to HAVE a tattoo?

    "It is perfectly legal to beat your wife on the court house steps on Sundays."
    What if I want to beat her elsewhere? Or at a different time?
    Does this mean that I have to pull her all the way to the courthouse on a sunday if I need to give her a beating? But I want to be hunting indians on sundays...

    "Every adult male must bring a rifle to church on Sunday in order to ward off Indian attacks."
    Does it say whether you have to be at the church in order to shoot indians? I've never been a fan of churches, but I do like hunting.

    "Oral sex is considered a crime against nature."
    Ahh... That's a relief. Crime against NATURE. I guess that means the court doesn't have jurisdiction, and that nature is the only one that can punish me. I can live with that.
