While I was looking for answers to why no Lions

Why I was unsuccessfully trying to find out why there are many places that do not allow Lions at the movies I discovered some other weird laws.

It is illegal to take lion to a movie in Baltimore, Maryland.
It is illegal to throw a ball at someone’s head just for the fun of it in New York.
You can’t eat peanuts and walk backwards on sidewalks during a concert in Greene, New York.
Anyone that runs out of gas in Youngstown, Ohio is subject to arrest.
No sleeping donkeys are allowed in bathtubs in Oklahoma after 7PM.
Next time you see a moose from an airplane in Alaska, you could be in a heap of trouble.
A baseball team hitting a baseball out of the park or stadium in Oklahoma has to think twice before hitting a home run since it is against the law.
A Kentuckian has to take a bath once a year, whether they need it or not.
Buying bologna on a Sunday is against the law in Tennessee.
Any school bus drivers in Florida trying to transport livestock on a school bus is subject to arrest.
Chickens in Virginia can only lay eggs between 8AM and 4PM.
Anyone carrying a concealed weapon that is six feet or longer in the state of Washington, will have to suffer the consequences for breaking the law.
If you are herding sheep down Hollywood Boulevard, remember to count them first, since no more than 3,000 sheep are allowed on the boulevard at the same time.

although I can not prove it.

It seems in the 1920s the real fancy theaters (Picture Palaces) where owned by the film studios and used to premier and first-run their major films. You almost never found both MGM and Paramount in the same cities. I wonder if the cities that do not allow Lions in theaters where Paramount cities and they did not want any reminders of MGM Lions in their Picture Palaces. Sounds like something Adolph Zukor might do. I wonder if there are any cities that do not allow you to bring mountains to the movies? Could not find any Sad Maybe Louis B. Mayer was not worried about mountains in his theaters.
