Out in Kansas City, minor are not allowed to buy cap guns. There is not a law on the books, however, that prohibits minors from buying shotguns. Another odd minor law, minors in Marceline can buy tobacco and rolling papers but not lighters. Apparently it didn't occur to anyone that books of matches are free.

Purdy must be pretty old. Dancing is not allowed there.

University City is a strange place. Not only is it against the law for someone to own PVC pipe, it is also against the law to have a yard sale in the front yard. Worse yet, you're not permitted to ask people to watch over your own parked car.

Don't make faces around a baby carriage in Mole. Out there, it is illegal to frighten a baby.

If you're living out in Buckner, you can burn your yard waste any day of the week except for Sunday.

A case of common sense and uncommon laws, you cannot provide alcoholic beverages or other intoxicants to elephants in Natchez.
