Odd U.S. state laws ban owning skunks, swearing - Yahoo! News: "WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In Virginia, under the terms of a 1950 law, no animal may be hunted on Sundays except raccoons, which may be hunted until 2:00 a.m.
In Connecticut, a 1949 ordinance forbids the storing of town records in any place where liquor is sold.
A 1974 Tennessee law states: 'It is unlawful for any person to import, possess, or cause to be imported into this state any type of live skunk.'

But these old laws occasionally come back to bite."
