    NO Dancing Allowed!!

    http://www.cnn.com/US/9704/04/dancing.ban/

    A New York Cabaret Law forbids dancing in restaurants. Ungghhhh I feel sick. It's old but damnnnnn. First time I hear of this.

    Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die.

    Yeah, thats really, really old.

    Besides, you're in Montreal! Do you come down often? Its certainly NOT as though there is a lack of places to dance in New York. I'm dancing right now.

    edit: Though now that I've managed to block out the events of the last week, maybe its time to go back to my old avatar.

    There are slews of old laws that are completely unenforcable (not saying you can't enforce this one) and entirely unconstitutional. They are usually still on the books because the amount of money it would take to remove them isn't justified when you see how ridiculous they are.

    This one was probably pushed by dance hall owners (in the '20's) so they could continue to charge folks to come inside and dance (eateries may have started impinging on their business).

    But...in Footloose...dancing was outlawed in his town. And had to go to a neighboring town to dance. Then people found out and got all pissed. Cause like...dancing killed John Lithgowe's son. Or something.

    I'm more interested in the exact events that took place to prompt people to make such laws.

    California

    * It is a misdemeanor to shoot at any kind of game from a moving vehicle, unless the target is a whale.
    * It is illegal to set a mousetrap without a hunting license.
    * It is against the law to hunt for ducks while you are in an airplane.
    * It is illegal to ride a bicycle in a swimming pool.
    * In San Francisco, it is illegal to wipe one's car with used underwear.
    * In Ventura County, cats and dogs are not allowed to have sex without a permit.
    * Persons classified as "ugly" may not walk down any street. (San Francisco)
    * Animals are banned from mating publicly within 1,500 feet of a tavern, school, or place of worship.
    * No vehicle without a driver may exceed 60 miles per hour.
    * Detonating a nuclear device within the city limits results in a $500 fine. (Chico)
    * Elementary schools may not host poker tournaments. (Fresno)
    * It is illegal to drive more than two thousand sheep down Hollywood Boulevard at one time. (Hollywood)
    * Drinking intoxicating cement is prohibited. (Indian Hills)

    Cats shouldn't be having sex with dogs to begin with.

    That one came as a result of a particularly lurid Roman Polanski wrap party.
