The Beehive State

I came across this site that had a list of some of the unusual laws in Utah.  I was particularly amused with the following:

It is a crime to curse on a bus.
After experiencing UTA firsthand, I sincerely doubt this has ever been enforced.

Discriminating unfairly in the purchase of milk, cream or butterfat is a crime. 
What is most disturbing to me about this law is the subject of butterfat.  Seriously?  Butterfat?  I cringe.

(Google tells me this is a poultry inspector)
Prosecutors can seek death for anyone who kills an on-duty poultry inspector. 
The life of an on-duty poultry inspector appears to be quite treacherous.

A drive-by shooting could get you five years in jail and a $5,000 fine, but you could spend 15 years in prison and pay $10,000 for altering the license plate stickers on your car. 
What if the drive-by shooting resulted in the killing of an on-duty poultry inspector? What then?!?

You must yield to birds while driving on the highway. 
Perhaps it is the on-duty poultry inspector who enforced this law, before he was killed in a drive-by shooting.

 First cousins may marry, but only if they are beyond child-bearing years.
Because that would eliminate the creepiness of it all?

It is slander - punishable by up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine - to falsely accuse a female of being unchaste.
Lesson to be learned: do not call a girl a hussy unless you are, in fact, sure that she is a hussy.
