A chain of links led me to this funny site called Dumb Laws, where I found a number of really silly-sounding rules including the claim that in Florida,
If an elephant is left tied to a parking meter, the parking fee has to be paid just as it would for a vehicle.
Well, I'm as willing to believe in the idiocy of the Florida Legislature as the next guy, but it made me a little suspicious that there was no citation to the source of this rule. Party-pooper that I am, I popped over to the Florida Statutes Annotated on Westlaw and searched for the words “elephant” and “elephants”. Not found.
Could it be the the “dumb” here is believing these are actual dumb laws?
(Hope these guys have done their research…)
