Oh, Florida! You‚??ve got some crazy laws

This article originally appeared on watchdog.org.

MIAMI ‚??If you plan on visiting the Sunshine State soon, be sure to pack a sense of humor along with your sunscreen.

Florida Watchdog uncovered some pretty funny, antiquated laws that will surely give you chuckle.

1-¬†Get to work, dad!¬†¬†In Oakland, stay-at-home fathers are considered vagrants and may be subject to a $500 fine or 60 days in prison. The law says any ‚??persons able to work but habitually living upon the earnings of their wives‚?Ě and who are ‚??able-bodied persons over the age of 18 without means of support and remain in idleness‚?Ě will be punished. This gives a whole other meaning to the term ‚??deadbeat dad.‚?Ě

2-If you plan on going to a ‚??nudity‚?? club in Tampa,¬†don‚??t expect to see any, well, nudity. The city prohibits exposing, exhibiting, displaying or revealing breasts, or any part of the lower torso.

3-Leave your pig at home.¬†The city of Miami Beach prohibits anyone from having ‚??in his possession, control, management or custody any swine within the city.‚?Ě

4:¬†Don‚??t bring your hot dog cart to the graveyard.¬†The city of Destin prohibits the use of food carts in its cemeteries.¬†No wonder dead people are so skinny.
