So many laws to break, so little time

A laugh-out-loud idea that exposes the absurdity of so many of the laws we have on the books in this society. Two English students are planning a crime spree across the western US, trying to break as many laws as they can find:

Starting in the liberal state of California, they hope to evade the attention of local police officers when they ride a bike in a swimming pool and curse on a crazy-golf course. In the far more conservative -- and landlocked -- state of Utah, they will risk the penitentiary when they hire a boat and attempt to go whale-hunting. If they manage to outwit state troopers in Utah, and perhaps federal agents on their trail, they will be able to take a deserved, but nevertheless illegal, rest when they have a nap in a cheese factory in South Dakota.
