First I'll Take Manhattan, Then ...

New York:
  1. A fine of $25 can be levied for flirting. This old law specifically prohibits men from turning around on any city street and looking "at a woman in that way." A second conviction for a crime of this magnitude calls for the violating male to be forced to wear a "pair of horse-blinders" wherever and whenever he goes outside for a stroll.

  2. Jumping off a building is punishable by death (this includes the Empire State building). [Thanks to Chrisi C for that and to Georgina for a correction to the wording]

  3. It is illegal to shoot a rabbit from a moving trolley. [Thanks to Jacob Egloff]
Je vais donc être sage, ne pas flirter et je tâcherai de ne tirer sur aucun lapin ...
Tout cela vient du merveilleux site Stupid Laws in USA
