California has some very strange laws, including one that states sunshine is guaranteed to the masses. Many are just outdated laws that originally served a purpose and have yet to be amended or repealed, but now serve as a source of entertainment. Here are some of the most interesting ones.

In LA, it is illegal to wear a zoot suit, lick a toad, throw a frisbee on a beach without a lifeguard’s permission, to cry on the witness stand, and to hunt moths beneath a street light.

Nobody may annoy a lizard in a city park in Fresno.

In Dana Point, no one can use their bathroom without first shutting the window.

In Walnut, a man cannot dress as a woman without prior permission from the sheriff.

In Chico, one cannot bowl on the sidewalk and detonating a nuclear device will result in a $500 fine.

In Blythe, one is not allowed to wear cowboy boots unless they own a minimum of two cows.

In Baldwin Park, it is illegal to ride a bike in a swimming pool.
