I don't really find the laws funny per se, but imagining the situation which made it a necessity to create the laws is what brings a smile to my face. I can clearly picture the economy of Tennessee crumbling because people gathered to share pies in dinners, or a man in San Francisco who bought hundred of elephants and had them walking at their leisure in the Market Street.

That is why most people find them funny I would have thought...

Funny story, I tried to share some pie with my homeboy while we were at Waffle house one day, and they wouldn't let us. Makes you wonder who the hell tried to catch a fish with a lasso. I don't even see how that works out. Explosives, projectile weapons, nets, poles, lures, all of that I know, but a lasso? I'll bet he was drunk. Scratch that, I KNOW he was drunk.
