    The first one makes PERFECT sense, after you see the drunk homeless people and the shit they do.

    The second one also makes sense, considering the same reasons, and including the fact that we get dumbass tourists up here a lot.

    Man there some good laws here
    * It is illegal to wear a fake mustache that causes laughter in church.
    I would love to know the events that caused them to put this law in to place.Although it could have had something to do with this law.
    * Every man in Brainerd is required by law to grow a beard.
    Maybe he just could't grow a mustache,or he had a Charlie Chaplin impersonation after church.


    * Putting salt on a railroad track may be punishable by death.
    I believe we talking about the well know Salte-Gate conspiricy instigated by the American Tyre Assc. to rust the national railway causing the nation rail industry to grind to a halt,forcing all transport to be carried over road.Pushin up sales of the tires.

    Man i got way too much time on my hands.
