It is against the law to put pretzels in bags in Philadelphia

Based on an act first enforced in 1760, you cannot put a pretzel in a bag in Philadelphia. This may seem like a strange rule, but is not the only strange rule in the United States. In Texas, it is technically illegal for someone to have a pair of pliers in their possession. In Alaska, it is apparently against the law to look at a moose when you are in an airplane and airborne. And finally, in California women aren't allowed to drive cars while in housecoats.
