      Did you know that indoor cats always barf on the carpet--even if it's a 5x7 area rug on the wide expanse of tile flooring?

          ...One in ten people live on an island. Lucky you live Hawaii,but not if you like to laugh.

          ...In Hawaii there's an old law still on the books that states that it is forbidden to laugh after 10pm.

            I'll step outside my house, start laughing at 10:01 p.m., and wait for the police to show up and cuff me.

            I wonder how much bail is needed for this "crime."

              No bail...just 45 days in the slammer...reduced to 23 if you can hold it in!

                Hmmm. Could work for our dog too. If left out of her enclosure, she'll take a dump everytime. Same place, same area of our living room carpet. It now has a permanent brown stain. Oh yeah, the other dog barfs on the carpet as well. We can leave her in the tiled patio and she'll start heaving and head over to the carpet.

                  Whew. For a minute there I thought you meant that someone could get reduced jail time if they showed good bladder control.

                  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

                      May I ask where you heard this? I just did a search of the Hawaii Revised Statutes and couldn't find it. I entered "laugh" and got nothing. I entered "ten o'clock" and got two results, but neither had anything to do with this topic. It's possible I'm not entering the right query, or that the search engine isn't working correctly, but I did a test run with "landlord" and got 78 returns.

                      Could it be a county law somewhere?

                      I can't find it in the revised charter of the city and county of Honolulu, either, but the search engine doesn't seem to be as muscular as for the HRS.

                        I just "googled "In Hawaii there's an old law still on the books that states that it is forbidden to laugh after 10pm." Came up with several Forums who posted it. Alas, nobody can verify it.

                          Yeah - I hate it when people laugh at music after 10 p.m.

                            This site seems to be the culprit (thanks, Lynn). I just emailed via the "contact" link to request a citation, but I strongly doubt I'll hear back from anyone. Gr.

                              I love hearing about the old laws, some of them are really amusing. In VA, there is still a law on the books stating that there needs to be someone in front of your vehicle, 100 yards, ringing a bell, to notify people that a car is coming. Or that on Sundays, you can beat your spouse in the courthouse steps with a stick no larger in circumference then your thumb.
