Weird Laws - Mississippi

In Mississippi

  1. A would-be groom must “prove himself manly” prior to marriage by hunting and killing either six blackbirds or three crows. (What happened to deer and moose?)
  2. It is illegal to seduce a woman by lying and promising to marry her.
  3. It is illegal to teach someone what polygamy is.
  4. If one is a parent to two illegitimate children, that person will go to jail for at least one month.
  5. One may be fined up to $100 for using “profane language” in public places.
  6. Cattle rustling is punishable by hanging.
  7. It is illegal for a male to be sexually aroused in public.
