About the book:

Two Englishmen on a crime spree break American laws!

Stupid, unreasonable, and long-forgotten lawsbut laws just the same.

In 1787 the wise framers of the U.S. Constitution laid out the laws of the land. Since then, things have gone awry, and a few laws even the far-sighted framers couldnt have imagined have worked their way onto the books in towns and cities across the country.

Did you know that in the United States its illegal to:

" Fish while wearing pajamas in Chicago, Illinois?

" Enter a theater within three hours of eating garlic in Indianapolis?

" Offer cigarettes or whiskey to zoo animals in New Jersey?

" Fall asleep in a cheese factory in South Dakota?

Englishman Rich Smith discovered these little-known laws during a great American crime spree that took him from coast to coast in search of girls to kiss (its illegal to kiss for longer than five minutes at a time in Kansas), oranges to peel (which the law says shouldnt be done in hotel rooms in California), and whales to hunt (unlawful in Utah).

What inspired a perfectly law abiding, mild-mannered Englishman to come to America and take on the law? He simply wanted to know why. How did these only in America laws come to be, do the police know they exist, and would they care if he broke them? So with his best mate, Bateman, by his sideand at the ready should bail be requiredSmith set out to break the law in the United States.

Part road trip, part chronicle of the absurdity of human behavior, part search for the ultimate in roadkill, You Can Get Arrested for That follows Smith and Bateman on their not quite Bonnie and Clyde adventure.
