Odd Laws...Chicago

With all the ballyhoo going on here with Blago, I thought I would dig up a few odd laws - unique ONLY to Chicago. Enjoy

All businesses entering into contracts with the city must sift through their records and report any business they had dealing with slaves during the era of slavery.

Law forbids eating in a place that is on fire.

It is illegal to give a dog whiskey.

It is forbidden to fish while sitting on a giraffe’s neck.

Kites may not be flown within the city limits.

In the Pullman area, it is illegal to drink beer out of a bucket while sitting on the curb.

It is legal to protest naked in front of city hall as long as you are under seventeen years of age and have legal permits.

Other states and/or cities to follow when you least expect it!
