Funny experience in Columbus,OH

I've been here for 3 days and having a lot of fun. Certainly the campus tour and the leture on US government system in city hall were interesting and informative, but somehow, the funny part of me is also interested in something else that shows the fun side of common American people. So, let's have some American style of humor.

No.1 : interesting card in supermarket
We were wandering around in Giant Eagle, then I ran into this "awesome" card, it says:
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can
spend. A succesful woman is one who can find such a man. :D

No.2: lunch chat in campus
We had lunch in OSU students dinning hall yesterday and chatted a little with 2 high school boys who were in a sports camp here.
me: So the US government has some sort of sensorship?
Joseph(one of the boys): Yes, it's just because of detecting terrorism.
me: like how?
Joseph: It's just like...you may be detected by saying "oh...my oven
just exploded and the chicken were all bombed up!"
:P

No.3: funny laws in US
We listened to the lecture in city hall this morning and got to know that the state legislatures can pass laws as long as it doesn't defy the federal law or the Constitution. So you can find some really funny state laws. Here are some Ohio state laws I find from the internet:
It is illegal to fish for whales on Sunday.

It is illegal to get a fish drunk.

It is illegal for more than five women to live in a house.

No one may be arrested on Sunday or on the Fourth of July.

Haha,so have you got some American humor? come join us and find some more!
