Two Englishmen on a crime spree break American laws!<br><br>Stupid, unreasonable, and long-forgotten laws—but laws just the same.<br><br>In 1787 the wise framers of the U.S. Constitution laid out the laws of the land. Since then, things have gone awry, and a few laws even the far-sighted framers couldn’t have imagined have worked their way onto the books in towns and cities across the country.<br><br>Did you know that in the United States it’s illegal to:<br><br>• Fish while wearing pajamas in Chicago, Illinois?<br><br>• Enter a theater within three hours of eating garlic in Indianapolis?<br><br>• Offer cigarettes or whiskey to zoo animals in New Jersey?<br><br>• Fall asleep in a cheese factory in South Dakota?<br><br>Englishman Rich Smith discovered these little-known laws during a great American crime spree that took him from coast to coast in search of girls to kiss (it’s illegal to kiss for longer than five minutes at a time in Kansas), oranges to peel (which the law says shouldn’t be done in hotel rooms in California), and whales to hunt (unlawful in Utah). <br><br>What inspired a perfectly law abiding, mild-mannered Englishman to come to America and take on the law? He simply wanted to know why. How did these “only in America” laws come to be, do the police know they exist, and would they care if he broke them? So with his best mate, Bateman, by his side—and at the ready should bail be required—Smith set out to break the law in the United States.<br><br>Part road trip, part chronicle of the absurdity of human behavior, part search for the ultimate in roadkill, <i>You Can Get Arrested for That</i> follows Smith and Bateman on their not quite Bonnie and Clyde adventure.

From Wikipedia: Robert's Rules of Order is the short title of a book containing rules of order intended to be adopted as a parliamentary authority for use by a deliberative assembly written by Brig. Gen. Henry Martyn Robert. Currently in its eleventh edition and published under the name Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised (and often referred to using the initialism RONR) it is the most widely used parliamentary authority in the United States,[1] according to the National Association of Parliamentarians, a professional association of approximately 4,000 members which provides education and accreditation certifications for parliamentarians.[2] ~~~ The book is designed for use in ordinary societies rather than legislative assemblies, and it is the most commonly adopted parliamentary authority among societies in the United States.[3] The book claims to be a "codification of the present-day general parliamentary law (omitting provisions having no application outside legislative bodies)".[4] This statement does not imply any approbation on the part of the courts, and the "general parliamentary law" is related neither to statutory legal requirements nor to common-law precedent derived from court judgments. Being widely accepted, and being based for the most part on long-standing traditions of parliamentary procedure, however, the current edition of the book is a reliable reference. Nevertheless, the provisions of any particular manual are not, as a general matter, legally binding upon an assembly that has not formally adopted it as its parliamentary authority; any such manual can at best be cited as "persuasive".[5] In addition, a number of changes have been made to recent editions, such as provisions dealing with videoconferences, teleconferences, and email, which now makes these editions more than merely codifications of the "present-day general parliamentary law" as existed at the time Robert was originally writing.
