What are the Weirdest Constitutional Arguments Ever Asserted in Court?

Most debates about constitutional law concern issues that made their way to the U.S. Supreme Court. But for the most part, the Supreme Court only hears constitutional claims that are at least plausible. I’m interested in collecting a list of the weirdest, strangest constitutional arguments that have been asserted outside the Supreme Court. That is, I want to hear about the least plausible constitutional arguments that have ever been made. I suspect that many of these claims will be made by pro se plaintiffs such as prisoners or tax protestors. And I’m sure most of them will be arguments that trial courts readily rejected, or even never bothered to analyze it on the merits.

So what are the arguments? Please include either a cite to the case or a link to the opinion (or at least a news story about it). Many thanks.
