Weird Laws–West Virginia

In West Virginia

  1. It is legal for a male to have sex with an animal as long as it does not exceed 40lbs. sex with the family cat is okay, but not the family dog.
  2. A person may be placed in jail for up to six months for making fun of someone who does not accept a challenge. I double dog dare you.
  3. It is illegal to snooze on a train. cause why….?
  4. A person may not hold public office if he or she has ever participated in a duel.  guess we won’t see nascar drivers running for office after the Gatorade Duel in Jan/Feb.
  5. For each act of public swearing a person shall be fined one dollar.  I would be so screwed.
  6. According to the state constitution, it is unlawful for anyone to own a red or a black flag. is that why we don’t race in west virginia?
  7. Whistling under water is prohibited. if you can whistle under water, I want to see that!
  8. Firemen may not whistle or flirt at any woman passing a firehouse. THAT’S why they don’t hang out at the firehouse.
  9. It is legal to beat your wife so long as it is done in public on Sunday, on the courthouse steps. did I just write that?
  10. No member of the clergy is allowed to tell jokes or humorous stories from the pulpit during a church service. yep. sounds about right. no fun ever allowed to be had in church. (ugh)


  1. Our preacher often tells jokes from the pulpit. But we aint in WV.

    I dont like cats.
