10 Weird Fashion-Related Laws In Various U.S. Cities And Counties

Uh-oh. Nicki Minaj better stay out of Sarasota, Florida.

In effort to find exactly in what states you can legally waltz into a store in just a bikini, I’m came across something even better. In Sarasota, Florida “it is illegal to sing while wearing a bathing suit.” It only makes sense, of course, because if you’re going to sing, you should always be fully clothed. Singing along to Robyn in your two-piece at the beach is going to get you in trouble. It’s wrong; it’s inappropriate in all ways and when they drag you off to jail, I will salute the cops who do so.

Some of these laws are great, some are just plain weird, and there are definitely a ton more out there, I’m sure. But whoever passed some of them should be awarded for such craziness! Either way, I’m moving to Fargo.

      Obviously most of the truly absurd laws on the books were directed at one annoying person sometime in the past. “Where is the law that says I can’t shake my bottom at the ladies?” “…the council met and agreed make it an offense. ‘Gentlemen may not shake their bottom at ladies in public’, now stop doing it cause you’ve given Ester the conniptions.”

      Love it! Silly laws crack me up. By the way, it’s not fashion related, but did you know that it’s illegal to hunt for whales in Ohio?
      Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
