MIAMI, FLORIDA —If you plan on visiting any of these towns in the Sunshine State soon, be sure to pack a sense of humor along.
1. Vagrant Dads: In Oakland, Fla, stay-at-home fathers are considered vagrants and may be subject to a $500 fine or 60 days in prison. The law says any “persons able to work but habitually living upon the earnings of their wives” and who are “able-bodied persons over the age of 18 without means of support and remain in idleness” will be punished. This gives a whole other meaning to the term “deadbeat dad.”
2. Now lower limb exposure allowed: If you plan on going to a ‘nudity’ club in Tampa, don’t expect to see any, well, nudity. The city prohibits exposing, exhibiting, displaying or revealing breasts, or any part of the lower torso.
3. Leave your pig at home. The city of Miami Beach prohibits anyone from having “in his possession, control, management or custody any swine within the city.”
4. No Food Carts in the Graveyard: Don’t bring your hot dog cart to the graveyard. The city of Destin prohibits the use of food carts in its cemeteries. No wonder dead people are so skinny.
