“Donkeys cannot sleep in bathtubs.”
Strangely, there is some backstory to this utterly bizarre law. As the legend goes, a ranch owner had a donkey who — for whatever reason — enjoyed sleeping in an old bathtub out on the land. Ultimately, a massive flood gushed through the city, and obliterated the man’s ranch. The donkey had been sleeping in the bathtub — and ended up floating downriver a few miles away.
In order to save the donkey, it took the town both time and money. This didn’t sit well with law makers, and thus this weird provision was reportedly created.
