Though Pennsylvania doesn't seem to boast as many strange and funny laws as some other states, it is still home to quite a few that are sure to give you a good chuckle.

Housewives better take their housecleaning seriously. It is illegal for housewives to try and hide dirt under a rug inside their home, so make sure it's cleaned up properly... or hidden under furniture instead!

Singing in the shower is apparently safe in Pennsylvania, but it is illegal to sing in the bathtub.

If you are getting married, be sure to avoid alcohol before the ceremonies, since it is illegal for the minister or priest to perform the marriage if either the groom or bride is intoxicated. Additionally, you should make sure that no cannons, guns, or other explosive type weapons are set off at your wedding, as it is illegal and you can be fined.

If you plan on going fishing, you'd be best off to take your fishing pole. Fishing with dynamite is illegal in Pennsylvania, as is catching a fish with any part of your body except for your mouth.

In Wellsboro, Pennsylvania, jugglers should avoid the airport, as it is illegal to juggle in front of any airplane. And speaking of airplanes, female flying students take note.
