Strange In The Heart Of Texas

Texas Flag

You know that saying "Everything Is Bigger In Texas?" Unfortunately it applies to some of our state and local law books, which contain some humorous, absurd and outdated laws.

We've taken the time to dig them up. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this trip through some of our state's oddest rules and regulations.

Keep Your Hands Off Those Udders, Pal

It is illegal to milk another person's cow.

No Religious Test. Except...

No religious text is required as a qualification to hold public office in Texas but one must "acknowledge the existence of a Supreme Being" to be eligible

Park Yourself On That Bar Stool

It is illegal to take more than three sips of beer at a time while standing. As if you needed an excuse to sit down and enjoy a cold one.

A Recipe For Gridlock If There Ever Was One

When two trains meet each other at a railroad crossing, each shall come to a full stop, and neither shall proceed until the other has gone. Sounds like we're going to be a bit late getting to our destination...

Incentive To Control The Weather

In 2001, a law was passed that offers financial grants for modifying and controlling the weather.

We suspect that the state hasn't had to pay out very much, if at all.

You Better Just Hold It

If you feel the need to relieve yourself in El Paso, you better make sure you make it into a restroom or you could face legal trouble. It is illegal to urinate on the streets of this fine city.

Eye For An Eye? Maybe. Eye For A Dollar? Absolutely not.

It is illegal for one to sell one's own eye.

Do Flowers Have Ears?

The Bluebonnet is the official song of the state flower.
