    1. In a little town in mid-missouri, It is illegal to worry squirrells. What this means is that if you do anything to worry a squirell in any way, you get thrown in jail for a few nights.

    2. Apparently in IOWA, it is Illegal to hunt whales from your car. Yes, thats right, ITS ILLEGAL TO HUNT WHALES FROM YOUR CAR!
