2. No Dwarf Tossing in Florida
Owners of bars and nightclubs in the Sunshine State can be fined up to $1000 if they promote any kind of dwarf tossing contest. This one made the law books as recently as 1989. It’s kind of sad that these things have to be specified, but it was a popular entertainment fad back in the day. It’s even sadder that state legislator Ritch Workman actually tried to have this law repealed in 2011. “I’m on a quest to seek and destroy unnecessary burdens on the freedom and liberties of people,” he said to the Palm Beach Post. “This is an example of Big Brother government.” Well, somebody has to look out for the little people.
