We’re all pretty much aware of the insanely stupid laws that exist in the United States, but we’re betting you probably didn’t know about these 14 bizarre things that are actually legal in ‘merica. Like who knew you could legally have sex with an animal? Or drink with your kids? Let’s make a motion to switch out one of those things with jaywalking. Makes way more sense to us.
WALK AROUND TOPLESS
If you don’t happen to live in Utah, Indiana or Tennessee, you’re practically free to walk around without a top on ladies. So yeah, it might not be the best thing to do on a Sunday past a church but as far as we’re concerned, go for it. Please. More power to you.
WEAR A COLANDER FOR YOUR DRIVER’S LICENSE PHOTO
You can’t freaking smile, but you can wear a silver colander on your head made for draining out pasta for your driver’s license picture. According to the 'Pastafarian’ movement, you can wear a pasta strainer on your dome for religious regions in Utah and California. Don’t worry, were just as confused.
SENDING UNWANTED DICK PICS
Move to Georgia if you feel like you want to be always able to send random people pictures of your penis. Or don’t, because that’s super weird.
If you’re a teacher and are into corporal punishment, good news for you because 19 states in the USA allow it. We’d probably advise against using this type of punishment though. EATING PEOPLE
With shows like The Walking Dead taking over the nation, canabalism is so hot right now. There are no actual laws in the books that forbid any one in the U.S. from eating another human. But technically if you eat someone else, that may or may be murder. Don’t take your chances. HAVING A BEAR AS A PET
In good ol’ Indiana you can actually have a giant bear as a pet legally. You know, if cats and dogs are way too boring for you. DRIVING BAREFOOT
Reckless? Probably not. Smelly? 100 percent yes. It is legal to drive barefoot in the U.S., however cops could use this against you and cite you for reckless driving if you get pulled over.
RIDING IN THE BACK OF A PICKUP TRUCK
Hillbillies unite! You’re totally fine putting your friends in the back of your truck. Even though seat belt laws are super tough, several states say it’s totally fine to get in the back of a truck. Whatever floats your boat, I guess. MARRYING YOUR COUSIN
Why is this still not illegal? Who knows. But in 19 states, it’s totally legal to marry someone who has the same grandparents as you. Ew. EATING ROAD KILL
Apparently it’s more rare for a state to have laws against people eating road kill than allowing it. Montana is the latest state to actually allow it, for whatever seriously weird reason.
OWNING A FLAME THROWER
Finally, you can torch your jerk neighbor every time his dog poops in your yard. DRIVING AROUND A TANK
That’s right. You can buy an armored scout car and drive it on the highway. That’s one way to enter a party, that’s for sure. CARD COUNTING
Yeah, you can actually be like Rain Man. Even though it’s frowned upon, it’s not technically illegal to card counts. You will just get your ass thrown out of the casino. BESTIALITY
You heard that right. Having sex with animals is legal in 15 states. No words.
