Did you know that...It is illegal to walk on the statehouse roof in South Carolina. Oklahoma law specifies that you may not trespass at night and injure melons. Several states have enacted a ""Veggie Hate Crimes"" act that forbids you from disparaging their produce. And Washington, D.C. forbids you from marrying your mother-in-law. Yes, senseless statutes really do pepper the nation's lawbooks. Attorney Lance Davidson's humorous short takes reveal scores of ludicrous laws, bizarre decisions, and true-life anecdotes that demonstrate just how quirky the law can be. Includes reliable case references and citations. * Features amusing quotes, quips, and even the occasional lawyer joke. LANCE S. DAVIDSON (Scottsdale, Arizona) is a writer, real estate attorney, and consultant. He is also the author of The Ultimate Reference Book: The Wit's Thesaurus.
