It's the Law.

I saw "judge" and started thinking about my favorite Georgia law... well it was a series of associations in my mind that ended up there, but I don't want to explain. So anyway, tell us one of the crazy/weird laws from your state or another.

My fave in GA:  You have the right to commit simple battery if provoked by "fighting" words.

In Kennesaw, GA : Every head of household must possess a firearm of some kind.

In Atlanta: One man may not be on another man's back. (which is funny being that midtown is one of the g**est places on earth)

annnd GO!

Not to rain on the fun parade but...

Many of these laws probably need to be taken in context...  That California sunshine thing I do believe is a reference to 2004's Proposition 59, or the "Sunshine Initiative".  It had to do with making the content of government meetings more accessible to the public.  That's all.

Thanks,
