There ought to be a law against making laws this wacky! But since there isn't, why not have fun with the silliest statutes, looniest lawsuits, and dumbest decisions on record? Who ever thought a law book would be funnier than a joke book? Well it is--just take a look at these: Children under the age of seven can't attend college in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Anyone flying over Maine should remember: it's illegal there to step out of the plane while it's in the air. And why can't the chicken cross the road in Quitman, Georgia? Because it's "fowl" criminal behavior. That's just the beginning, because this collection also uncovers some of the most incredible, unbelievable lawsuits, government grants, and court verdicts. For example, the United States Navy spent $792 for a designer doormat. A psychic sued doctors because she lost her "aura" after a brain scan. Each fact is stranger than the one before!… (more)

Ranging from one sentence to a page length, the four authors compiled a selection of legal related situations that appears to lack common sense. The book is arranged into five sections; On the Books: Outlandish Statutes, Ridiculous Lawsuits, Government waste, Courtroom Antics, and What’s the Verdict. They range from amusing to annoying. Although an index is provided, there are no footnotes or endnotes. ( )
