A hilarious collection of 101 real state laws from across the USA, by the creators of the successful website, DumbLaws.com. Did you know that in Indiana, it is illegal for a man to be sexually arounsed in public? Or that, in Rhode Island, a drug store can't sell toothpaste and a toothbrush to the same person on a Sunday? What about the Idaho law that outlaws women wearing heels of over three inches? Or that in Illinois there's a law prohibiting eavesdropping on your own conversation? You'll find these and ninety-seven other laws, some whimsical, others downright bizarre, all real, in the pages of YOU MAY NOT TIE AN ALLIGATOR TO A FIRE HYDRANT enhanced with forty witty and elegant original pen and ink drawings by Ward Schumaker. Each law is set off with a description, comments and a complete legal reference, making this a perfect book for the huge audience captivated by The Darwin Awards and Our Dumb Century. Nowhere else could one learn that, for instance, - In New Mexico 400 words of 'sexually explicit material' from Romeo and Juliet is outlawed - In Massachusetts you can spend a month in jail for frightening a pigeon - In Kentucky you may not dye rabbits funny colours or have a religious ceremony involving a reptile

About the Author:

Andy Powell will graduate from high school in 2002. So far his grades in mathematics have been pretty good. After starting his first Web site with Jeff in primary school, their site listing stupid laws made Yahoo!'s site-of-the-year list in 1998. Jeff Koon will graduate from high school in 2002. His favorite subject is history. Appearing on the Montel Williams Show with Andy in summer 2001 crowned his dot.com career.
