STRANGER THAN FICTION

This makeover sequence has nothing to do with the title of this page. It's just one of my favourites ...

So what is the purpose of this page. Well, while surfing recently I came across a wonderful page of laws that had been made in the USA and had never been repealed. And many of them seem to apply to hair ...

I found it atLooney Laws

The start of this page on Looney Laws, says I'm sure that each of these laws served some sort of purpose when they were made, but now we can all look back at them and say, "What the heck were they thinking?"

I've edited just the hair (men and women) related ones. But a lot of the others are funny too. For example - In Quitman, it is illegal for a chicken to cross a road. So here goes (oh, by the way, they are American state laws ... I'm a Brit ... not that I'm implying anything :-)

LOONEY LAWS

Alabama

It is illegal to wear a fake moustache that causes laughter in church.

Arkansas

School teachers who bob their hair may forfeit their pay raises.

Michigan

A state law stipulates that a woman's hair legally belongs to her husband.

Minnesota

Every man in Brainerd is required by law to grow a beard.

Nebraska

It is illegal for a mother to give her daughter a perm without a state license.

In Waterloo, barbers are forbidden from eating onions between 7am and 7pm.

In Omaha, barbers are forbidden from shaving their customers' chests.

Nevada

In Eureka, men who wear moustaches are forbidden from kissing women.

Texas

In Mesquite, it is illegal for children to have unusual haircuts.

Wisconsin

It is illegal to cut a woman's hair.

Married guys in Michigan seem to have it all their own way, especially if they're fetishists. Being a woman's hairdresser in Wisconsin sounds a cushy number ... but soooo boring! And if you're a young woman in Nebraska with straight hair, who hates the smell of onions and is well developed ... then you're reasonably safe from any major changes to your hair ... I think! I'm just wondering if I stumbled across an unused Monty Python script
