Most of us are law abiding citizens who know right from wrong, but you might be surprised to hear about a few official no-nos around the United States. There are some absurd and archaic laws still on the books in some places that will make you scratch your head about our legal system.

1. No Eating Dead Frogs in California
To be more specific, if a frog happens to croak during a jumping competition, you can’t make a meal of its corpse no matter how tempting its muscular frog legs are.

It stems from the old gold mining town of Angel Camp which has proudly hosted a Frog Jumping Jubilee for over 80 years. The legislators are just looking out for Kermit.
