We took some time earlier to look at some outdated and bizarre laws in the state of Illinois...Don't take your French Poodle to the opera, etc....Got it "Land of Lincoln," got it.

Here is a list of 47 rules and laws in Illinois that are beyond ridiculous. How things like this even get brought up, talked about and voted on...it's beyond me. Spudart

Here are some that you can think about and question if you have ever broken the law in Illinois...yikes. If you have participated in any of these, ok then...

In Illinois all bachelors should be called master, not mister, when addressed by their female counterparts.

Eureka, IL.  A man with a moustache may not kiss a woman.

Also in Illinois it is illegal for barbers to use their fingers to apply shaving cream to a customer’s face

This one is something special and I'm not sure how to "gently" present it other than just saying what it says: Champaign, Illinois. One MAY NOT pee into his neighbor's mouth.

Seriously that is a law. So many question like why only in Champaign, Illinois? Why has Rockford not got on board with this? Why is it designed to only be your "neighbor" why not the person four streets away, is that ok?

Other notable stupid laws include...

A man’s female companion shall call him “master” while out on a date. This does not hold true though if they are married.

Finally Springfield, IL where "dwarf tossing" is illegal, don't even think about it.
