Crazy new law - no visible underpants

Written by on February 10, 2005

Update: Virginia Senate drops the bill. It seems the lawmakers makes sense after all.

We have all laughed at them, old crazy US laws that do not make the slightest sense to anyone. Here are few of them:

  • Arizone, USA: It is illegal to wear suspender in Nogles, AZ.
  • California, USA: It is illegal to drive more than two thousand sheep down Hollywood Blvd. at one time.
  • Colorado, USA: In Denver, it is unlawful to lend your vacuum cleaner to your next door neighbor.
  • Washington, USA: It is illegal to carry a concealed weapon that is over six feet in length.
  • Louisiana, USA: It is illegal to rob a bank and then shoot at the bank teller with a water pistol.

This is just some of them, and even though they are very humorous, you would think that in this enlightened year of 2005 lawmaking would make more sense.

But, a new law has just been signed in Virginia, USA - stating anyone who "exposes his below-waist undergarments in an offensive manner" would tax a $50 fine.

What's next for Virginia? Laws stating the minimum legal length of skirts? A complete ban on wearing swimwear? ...or maybe that, every woman should cover their body (long-sleeved dresses or blouses, long dresses or pants) - like in many Arabic countries.

...or maybe the lawmakers in Virginia should focus their attention on more serious topics
