Our friends at The College Times published the following article on March 13, 2010. We thought you would enjoy it:
10. In Ohio, it’s illegal to get a fish drunk. Now I’m not sure who came up with this law or why it was important. Were people feeding too much booze to the fishes? Did a fish die of alcohol poisoning and other fish alert the authorities? How did this fish madness even begin?
9. About two in every three counties in Alabama are dry counties: they prohibit the production, distribution and sale of any alcoholic beverages. However, they permit the sale of firearms with virtually no restrictions or regulations. There’s no state permit required to purchase or carry rifles and shotguns, but it’s illegal to purchase alcohol.
8. In Indiana, liquor stores can’t sell milk or cold soft drinks. Perhaps milk and beer is a bad mix or something.
7. Looking for a place to be obnoxiously drunk while roaming the streets? Head to Minnesota, where public intoxication is not a crime. College students at the University of Minnesota probably have a lot of fun with this one.
6. While standing up in Texas, it’s against the law to take more than three sips of beer. Texans must be expert chuggers.
5. If you’re under 21 and in Missouri, refuse to take out the trash when your parents or friends ask. If the trash contains one empty alcohol beverage container, you could be charged with illegal possession of alcohol. At least it’s a good excuse to have someone else take out the garbage.
4. While drinking in Iowa, have your cash ready. It’s illegal to start a tab at a bar.
3. Thinking of sending friends in Kentucky a bottle of beer, wine or spirits as a gift? Think again. It’s illegal to ship alcohol to Kentucky. Try shipping it to one of Kentucky’s border states.
2. In Nebraska, bars can’t sell beer unless they are simultaneously brewing a kettle of soup. Budweiser and tomato soup anyone?
1. If you enjoy munching on some pretzels while drinking a beer, avoid the bars in North Dakota. Their state law prohibits serving beer and pretzels at the same time in any bar or restaurant. Where’s the logic in that?
