Laws we Love: False Weather Reports

I love funny laws! I’m just intrigued by how some laws made it to the books, and how other laws are so important, but, tragically, rarely used!  Here are some interesting laws I came across today while at work!
 
18 U.S.C.A. § 2074
 § 2074. False weather reports
 
Whoever knowingly issues or publishes any counterfeit weather forecast or warning of weather conditions falsely representing such forecast or warning to have been issued or published by the Weather Bureau, United States Signal Service, or other branch of the Government service, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ninety days, or both.
