Found this website just a short while ago and found it rather humorous, and insightful. Some of these laws I knew existed, while some are new and surprising to me. Here is a list of dumb laws from Canada. Some seem to be from previous centuries that were just never fixed. You can then peruse the site for other dumb laws from the US and around the world. I like how all the ones from Canada fit on one page, while the ones from the US are sorted by state. :P
