Weird Laws - Illinois

In Illinois

  1. Being broke is illegal (so do you all-of-a-sudden become rich when you move there?)
  2. You may be arrested for vagrancy if you do not have at least one dollar bill on your person (do quarters count?)
  3. Humming on public streets is prohibited on Sundays (so no humming church hymns after mass)
  4. In Chicago, it is illegal to fish in one’s pajamas (thank goodness)
  5. In Joliet, it is illegal to mispronounce the name Joliet (so do they make you take seminar on how to pronounce it before allowed to move in?)
  6. It is illegal for anyone to give lighted cigars to dogs, cats, and other domesticated animals kept as pets (oh geez. this is really a problem?)
  7. No standing on the 500 block of Illinois Avenue (because the monopoly man will send you to jail?)
