Stupid Oklahoma Laws

Nope, I don’t feel up to actually writing something witty or thought provoking tonight. Hell, I haven’t been up to it for the last three nights. So I was goofing off and found a list of stupid state laws that are still on the books. Well, except the tattoo one, it was repealed. Yay for me!

  • Females are forbidden from doing their own hair without being licensed by the state.
  • Dogs must have a permit signed by the mayor in order to congregate in groups of three or more on private property.
