The great state of Louisiana is unique in itself, but looking at some of the laws that are actually on the books in the Bayou State has even us scratching our heads. Only in Louisiana and DumbLaws.com have brought us a list of some of the wackiest, and, we hope you don't get arrested for any of the ones below!
