Never heard that before. :-? I'll have to do a soup audit next time I'm at the bar... :-b

A few others I found for Nebraska:
Persons with gonorrhea may not marry.
It is illegal to fly a plane while drunk.
If a child burps during church, his parent may be arrested.
It is Illegal to go whale fishing.
It is illegal for a mother to give her daughter a perm without a state license.

The whale fishing one is hilarious. :-b
