Although most of those laws sound dumb, there all at one time would have had a purpose.

Yah think? Then how do you explain this one from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania "No one is allowed to sleep on a refrigerator." I doubt there was a rash of on the refrigerator sleeping people to the extent they had to concoct a law to ban it. And even if people did go around sleeping on their refrigerators, that's their buisness. Damn this sounds like a monty python skit.
