That moment when you realize you broke the law and didn't even realize that what you did was illegal. (insert wide eye emoji here) I swear I didn't know. Trust me when I say I'm a rule follower, not a rule breaker! I'm a Capricorn; we do things by the book.

How did I find out this silly thing was illegal? The internet of course. So there I am scrolling to see what other crazy things are actually illegal in Texas, and I do think that at one time or another, we have all broken a couple.

Did you know it's illegal to eat trash in Texas? Oh snap! That's exactly what I did just the other day. Hold up let me explain...I was eating an orange and went to throw away the plate over which I had peeled it. I'm sure we've all done it...I accidentally threw away the orange instead! So...five-second rule...I quickly took it out of the trash, rinsed it off, and finished eating. I-lle-gal! Check out some other silly laws:

  • It is illegal to walk around barefoot in some Texas cities. Funny, I've never seen anyone in Walmart get arrested for breaking the law. (I've got jokes, folks!)
  • Portrait of ukrainian senior peasant in hat standing on a country road barefoot
  • It is illegal to milk someone else's cow in Texas. Well there go my weekend plans! By the way, if you break this law, you may be fined no more than $10.
  • Milking of a cow
  • It is illegal to buy cheese on Sunday. If you're serving nachos at your Superbowl party this weekend, you better shop on Saturday! This is an actual law in Houston. You cannot buy or sell Limburger cheese on Sunday. Good thing I don't even know what that is!
  • It is illegal to feather dust in a public place in Clarendon, Texas. You don't know how badly I want to carry my duster around and clean up someone else's office.
  • How could we possibly have known that these silly laws existed? Much less that we have all broken them at some time or another.
