Big Government. Small Brains. Dumb Laws.


Frequently Asked Questions

Why did you create Dumb Laws?
We started Dumb Laws because we knew there were literally hundred of dumb, stupid, and ridiculous laws still on the books, and once we uncovered them, people would definitely be interested in seeing them.

When did you start this site?
Dumb Laws was initially called “Stupid Laws”? when we founded it in September, 1998. We changed the name to Dumb Laws when we purchased the domain name in December, 1998.

Are all these laws real?

Iâ??m from ______ and you left out my country!
Be proud, because that absolutely, positively, 100% means you have no dumb laws. Just kidding. It probably means I just havenâ??t had a chance to research your country. If you have evidence of ridiculous laws in your country, feel free to contact me.

I think youâ??re an idiot, what do I do?
Keep it to yourself. The last thing I need is one more nutjob emailing me to tell me Iâ??m the crazy one.
