Every now and then, we come across some strange laws that are on the books in various states including our own.  Sometimes the laws are just outdated, it may have had a purpose at one time, or it is just ridiculous.

So I thought it might be fun to see what is still on the books in Missouri, and the craziest in other states.  We will start with the Show Me State:

Now for some strange ones in other states:

It is illegal to send a surprise pizza delivery to someone's house in Louisiana, or anything else that isn't a gift that they're expected to pay for. It is considered harassment.

Stink Bomb GIFs | Tenor

It is illegal to sell, dispose of, give away, or use Stink Bombs in Alabama.

It's illegal to do any fortune telling in Baltimore, Maryland.
