Marriage = Jail time

"Same-sex couples marrying in California could face prison time in Wisconsin"
Wow. So evidently Wisconsin has a law that makes it a crime for Wisconsin residents to get married in another state if that marriage is illegal in Wisconsin. The law has been around since before women could legally vote. All states have some wacky laws on the books. But this one packs a fine up to $10,000 and nine months in prison. Ouch.
After a little research I found out that in Wisconsin:

-Butter substitutes are not allowed to be served in state prisons.
-State Law made it illegal to serve apple pie in public restaurants without cheese.
-The state definition of rape stated that it was a man having sex with a woman he knows not to be his wife.
-It is illegal to cut a woman’s hair.

So are we going to arrest all of the hair stylists along with the gay couples?

My grandmother used to tell me about how when she wanted to buy Margarine (oleo!) she had to drive across the border into ILL to get it. I think when they started selling it in WI, it was chalk-white and they sold little dye packs to make it yellow. You had to mix it at home. Something to do with making margarine unappealing in the dairy state.
