I found this wildly funny, but maybe I'm just insane- this is actually in the US Legal Code (now we know what our highly paid congressmen do while in session):

§ 711a. “Woodsy Owl” character, name, or slogan
Release date: 2004-08-06

Whoever, except as authorized under rules and regulations issued by the Secretary, knowingly and for profit manufactures, reproduces, or uses the character “Woodsy Owl”, the name “Woodsy Owl”, or the associated slogan, “Give a Hoot, Don’t Pollute” shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

Look at the link and go to chapter 33... "Woodsy Owl" is something like "Smokey Bear"(the anti-forest fire one). It protects the names so "Smokey The Bear" can't sell Black n Milds. It seems reasonable.

In Atlanta you can't tie a giraffe to a lightpole.

In San Francisco it's a $500 fine for exploding a nuclear device inside city limits.

In one city in Oklahoma, it's illegal to read comic books in the car, no matter where you're sitting.

In Kansas City, it's technically illegal to serve ice cream and pie together.
