The other day, I was looking around on the internet and noticed that Texas has some REALLY strange laws that are still on the books. Check out a few that I’ve found.

    It’s illegal to sell your eye. Not sure why anyone would want to, but ok.

    There is an anti-crime law that says all criminals must give their victims 24 hours advance notice, oral or written, of the crime they’re planning to commit and the nature of that crime. Seriously? That’d be nice if people would warn you if something’s going to happen.

    One city has made it illegal to make more than three sips of beer at a time while standing.

    Apparently, in El Paso, all churches, halls of assembly, hotels, banks, stores, train depots and saloons are required to provide spittoons.

    There is a city ordinance that states that a person cannot go barefoot without first obtaining a special $5 permit.
