Law - a rule or order that it is advisable or obligatory to observe, according to Mirriam-Webster. 

There are laws everywhere - a lot of them we know about and abide by every day. But, there are others I'm willing to bet you knew nothing about.

Who knew that a little research could expose Colorado for housing some of the stupidest, craziest laws that I, for one, have ever heard of?

They might sound like bunch of April Fool's jokes - but they're not. Check out these 10 laws that really do exist in the Centennial State:

1. In Aspen, snowball fights are illegal.

Section 15.04.210 states that it is unlawful to throw stones, snowballs or discharge guns and other missiles; "It shall be unlawful for any person to throw any stone, snowball or other missile, or discharge any bow, blowgun, slingshot, gun, catapult, or other device, upon or at any vehicle, building, or other public or private property, or upon or at any person, or in any public way or place which is public in nature."

2. In Denver, it is illegal to stutter on a Sunday during a church service.

... but only on a Sunday.

3. In Colorado, it is against the law for children over the age of 8 to wet the bed.

Is that even your business, COLORADO?

4. In Boulder, couches may not be placed on outside porches.

"No person shall place, use, keep, store, or maintain any upholstered furniture not manufactured for outdoor use, including, without limitation, upholstered chairs, upholstered couches, and mattresses, in any outside areas located in the following places: (1) In any front yard; (2) In any side yard; (3) In any rear yard or other yard that is adjacent to a public street."

Allegedly, a common tradition at CU Boulder is to burn couches following big events (i.e. winning a football game). To curb this potentially dangerous activity, an ordinance was passed in an attempt to discourage such actions.

5. In Vail, it is illegal to crash into obstacles on a ski slope.

... as if you were going out of your way to crash into obstacles on a ski slope???

6. In Colorado, cats that meow in the dark will have their tails chopped off.

Excuse me???

7. In Denver, you may not drive a black car on Sundays.

If that's the case, I've broken the law several times... (don't tell anyone).

8. In Denver, it is unlawful to lend your vacuum cleaner to your next-door neighbor.

Hey Denver - have you ever heard the phrase "Do right by your neighbor and they'll do right by you" ? This law defeats the purpose of that notion.

9. In Louisville, residents may not own chickens, but may own up to three turkeys.

How DARE you discriminate against the chickens. Also, why only three turkeys?

10. In Colorado, it is illegal to ride a horse while under the influence.
