“You can get arrested for that”

Have you ever heard of “dumb laws”? They’re usually circulated via forwarded emails and include gems such as this one in Chicago that “forbids eating in a place that is on fire,” or the one in Baltimore that says its “illegal to take a lion to the movies.”

Apparently 2 young British men, on a trip to the US, wanted to see what would happen if they took some of these restrictions and intentionally disobeyed. Fortunately for us they’ve documented it along the way. (And in a very American entrepreneurial spirit, a book version is also available: “You Can Get Arrested For That: 2 Guys, 25 Dumb Laws, 1 Absurd American Crime Spree”)
