We thought it'd be hard to top part one and impossible to top part two, but here we are with part three! Now, if only we could have been in the room to hear the conversations when these laws were decided… Let's dive in!

Nevada: Ever wondered what it's like to lounge in the middle of a street? Us either, but in case you ever get the (ridiculous and not recommended at all) urge to do so, avoid Nevada. Placing a bench or chair in the road is strictly forbidden.

New Jersey: Not sure how Blairstown, New Jersey feels about putting chairs in the middle of the road, but as for planting trees? It's a definite no-no.

Connecticut: Trying to break a Guinness World Record for walking on your hands? Unless you can guarantee to stay off the roads, don't bother attempting it in Hartford, Connecticut.

Alaska: We're not positive on how one goes about enforcing this one, but in the state of Alaska, moose are prohibited from doing the dirty deed (yeah, the baby making one) on city streets.

Tennessee: If your vehicle is moving, it's illegal to shoot at any game unless you're hunting whale. Yeah okay, Tennessee… We see what you did there.

South Carolina: Messy car owners beware of Hilton Head, South Carolina. Storing trash in your vehicle not only exacerbates the city's rat problem, it's also illegal.

Oklahoma: Don't comic book and drive. Doing so in Oklahoma will land you a ticket.

Minnesota: Recently drive your truck through a muddy field or syrup factory spill? Better wash your tires before driving on any roads in Minnetonka. Leaving behind mud or any sticky substance can leave you facing public nuisance charges.

New Hampshire: Feel free to inhale all of the bus fumes you want in New Hampshire—just don't do it with the intention of reaching euphoria.

International bonus time! Last time we had a law out of Russia, and this time we're hitting up Denmark.

Denmark: Be sure to check under your car for anyone hanging out before sticking the key in the ignition. Starting a vehicle while someone else is under it is a big, illegal no-no.
