Obviously, we have laws to protect ourselves and others, and to keep our towns safe and clean. But there are some laws in place that are just strange. You may actually be guilty of doing one or more of these things that are illegal to do in Minnesota!

There are some weird laws that have gone around that are not true or aren't laws anymore. One of the more popular ones is that it's illegal to cross the border into Wisconsin with a chicken on your head (false). Another is that it's illegal to play bingo at nursing homes more than two times per week in Minnesota. That one was actually a law but it was voted out in 2015.
