I mean who has the authority to update Texas laws? I'm not talking the important, enforceable ones, I'm saying these 6 laws that seem like they were written in the 1800's. My personal favorite is #4 that involves alligators. NEVER have I ever wanted to keep an alligator as a pet. Read on for more silly laws they need to do away with! 

StupidLaws.com has listed a few of them but here are my favorites:

  1. An invitation from a third party overrules a restraining order - This one is mainly in College Station but it does state that if a person has a restraining order placed on them if the restrained person is invited over by another person they can enter the property legally. This is mostly for apartments and other multi-family dwellings but it could also work if you have a roommate that invites the restrained person over also.
  2. You can't tuck your pants into one boot unless you own ten or more cattle - This is definitely an old law that was probably put on the books in the 1800s and was just never taken out. Make sure you let all your oilfield friends know about this one.
  3. It is illegal to have anything protruding from your bumper unless a chain is attached to it - So if you get in a wreck and part of your bumper is protruding, just attach a chain to it and all will be good.
  4. It is illegal to raise alligators in your home - This one is for the people in Corpus Christi. If you are raising your pet alligator in your home, you might want to go rent an apartment to raise your alligator so you don't break this law.
  5. It is illegal for both sexes to flirt or respond to flirtation using the eyes and/or hands - This one is a San Antonio law on the books. So what is the point of this, to prevent people from letting another know they are interested? How did they get so many people in San Antonio if this law was enforced?
  6. It is illegal to urinate on the Alamo - This one actually was put on the books after Ozzy Osbourne famously decided to take a leak on the Alamo on February 19, 1982.

We need a job to earn a wage to afford the things we need in life. Sometimes, bosses can get overzealous with their authority and break the law.
