Kurzbeschreibung

Here's a collection of wacky written laws where each one was actually thought up by real human beings who then decided after writing it down and upon further reflection that yes, this would be a good rule that everybody should follow. You'll find more than 200 unusual, bizarre, and absurd laws. Above all, all of the laws mentioned in this book are real. The author has even provided citations in case you want to check his work.

HASH(0x9af41384) von 5 Sternen Fantastic book 3. März 2014
Von Keith Lee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I was pleased to receive a review copy of Kevin Underhill’s new book The Emergency Sasquatch Ordinance: And Other Real Laws that Human Beings Actually Dreamed Up. I’ve been looking forward to reading it for some time as Lowering The Bar is consistently funny, a difficult thing to do generally speaking, but doubly so when focusing on the legal world.

I was all set to begin reading the book the day after I received it – but it was gone! I turned my office upside down looking for the book wondering where I could have put it. I pull out my phone to text my wife to see if she had seen it, when I'm greeted with an image of my wife reading the book at work in the ER.

My wife barely reads the things I write. But she stole Underhill’s book and took it to work! They were passing it around and reading it out loud. That should give you an idea of how funny this book is.

The Emergency Sasquatch Ordinance is a collection of strange but true laws that people have drafted across time and around the world. Underhill has done an incredible job of sifting through who knows how many volumes of boring legal code to bring us these baffling and hilarious laws.

For example the oldest known legal codes mention beer. Significant historical knowledge that you will likely be without unless you pick up Underhill’s book. Or that it is illegal to shine a flashlight on a police officer in Arizona. Or the exact laws governing frog jumping contests. Or the 316-word definition of the word “buttocks.”

Basically it comes down to the fact that anyone, lawyer or not, who has even a passing interest in the ridiculous laws that society often concocts for itself, should buy this book. Entertaining, easy-to-read, and fun. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x9b59693c) von 5 Sternen Full of Laughs!! 15. Mai 2014
Von mkittysamom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Kevin is a real lawyer in San Francisco in the office of Shook, Hardy & Bacon. He has been with them for 20 years, and he is a defense of products-liability and consumer-protection lawyer. He also writes his Legal-Humor blog:
Check out Kevin Underhill's website [...]
This is his first book but he has written along with an essay, and his blog. He would also like to have a giant Burmese Python in the year 2020.

The Emergency Sasquatch Ordinance:... is a hilarious romp through history's silly laws/bills that have been made official, or almost passed. There is a lot of research behind the scenes *(check out the bibliography at the back).

Some of my Favorites:

-In Florida, it's illegal to molest a manatee. pg 136

-It's a felony to possess more than 37 lizards for commercial purposes pg 170

-No Children on the fenders pg 209

-In Idaho, cannibalism is against the law unless you can prove it was really necessary. pg 164

Happy Reading! I promise this book will make you laugh!!

HASH(0x9af41ee8) von 5 Sternen Great read and has proper citations, unlike most books of this type. 30. Mai 2014
Von Robert Chang - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a fun collection of odd and quirky laws and codes with humorous commentary. But what really sets this book apart from others of its type is that it is actually well researched and cited.

I've received a lot of "funny law" books over the years and with most of them, I would never repeat what I've read because I have no way of knowing if it is actually true or just a made-up, funny story. But here, Underhill actually gives the reader references to the laws and code sections he's referring to and includes direct inline quotes from them. To me, that turns a book that's just good for a quick laugh into a great book that's actually worth talking about.

I highly recommend it.

HASH(0x9db2eb10) von 5 Sternen Funny, clever, all real laws on the books, a hoot just like his blog 2. März 2014
Von Jan in NC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Warning! There is a big snake visible in the video. She is settling down for a nap.

Her relevance is made clear during the video.

Very funny book to read aloud from so I did for a minute in this video.

(You see neither my face nor the snake's because we're shy. Or hoping to become covert operatives.)

HASH(0x9db2ecc0) von 5 Sternen This was a pretty interesting read 28. Juli 2014
Von Adam Brenecki - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This was a pretty interesting read. It's almost completely unlike all of those other "funny laws that actually exist" books, because it's based on actual research carried out by an actual lawyer (rather than urban myths). The book also includes extensive quotes from the actual legislation that it's talking about; this can be entertaining, as it's pretty hilarious to see some of the absurd stuff that's written in the very proper, precise language that laws are written in, but on the other hand it can sometimes be tedious to flip through three (on-screen) pages of legalese to get to the punchline.

I actually found this wasn't quite as entertaining as the author's blog Lowering the Bar, but it was still hugely entertaining, and well worth the price nonetheless.
