There is a city ordinance that you can be cited for walking barefoot in downtown Winchester. As far as I know, it is no longer enforced.

There is a Kentucky statute that's still on the books that entitles an inmate upon being released from prison that said inmate is to be given a horse, a suit, and a twenty dollar gold piece. This is true and it was put into place with a slogan to go with it. A suit to look presentable in upon riding out of town with money in your pocket and a horse for company.

By law, anyone who has been drinking is "sober" until he or she"cannot hold onto the ground."

It is illegal to transport an ice cream cone in your pocket.

A Kentucky law says that burglary can only be committed at night.

It is illegal for pigeons to fly over Bellevue, KY.

Frankfort, Kentucky, makes it against the law to shoot off a policeman's tie.

In Kentucky, "No female shall appear in a bathing suit on any highway within this state unless she be escorted by at least two officers or unless she be armed with a club." An amendment to the above legislation: "The provisions of this statute shall not apply to females weighing less than 90 pounds nor exceeding 200 pounds, nor shall it apply to female horses." (Loony Laws" by Robert Pelton)

Not illegal, just have you seen the women from Virginia? You turn the lights on and you will lose your hard on.

It is illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating a vehicle.

I heard the ice-cream one too. Apparently it confuses people that it migHt be a gun. And another one is it is illegal for the women or children to stand on the outside part of a sidewalk closes to the street. It has to be a man or the mom to do it.

A person who handles, displays, or uses any kind of reptile may be fined from $50 to $100, unless he was using or handling it as a part of a religious service.

You may actually be grateful to learn that a Kentucky law requires each citizen to take a shower at least once a year.

An old law on the books has never been removed that allows you to publicly hang anyone who steals your horse.

If you want to fish in the Ohio River in Kentucky, you must have an Indiana Fishing License.

If you have any nude people in your house, they must be registered. A nude artistic display on your property is also illegal.

You can be sentenced to jail for five years if you send a bottle of wine, spirits, or beer to a friend as a gift.
