Customary Law is not really legal.It operates halfway between custom and common law or statutory.You may not believe that it exists, but it does.Here is a story demonstrating this.  Joe and Sally Brown bought two window fans from a department store in May of that year.They put the fans in their bedroom windows and planned to use them until the weather got hot in June.But then something strange happened.The cop next door told Joe and Sally that if they kept using the fansw that they would be cited for disturbing the peace.The cop said that their's was a air conditioned neighborhood, and window fans were not allowed.Now there is no common law or statutory law against having a fan in your window, but apparently there is a customary law.Other customary laws include sodomy (including lesbian sex) and penury (which includes witchery).

Now, none of the foregoing customary laws would probably pass constitutional muster, nevertheless they to get enforced, somehow.Black's Law Dictionary, for example, defines "penury," as poverty, and does not even include sodomy.The enforcement of Customary Law is enforced by the Klu Klux Klan, or other similary organizations.If Customary Laws become legitimate enough they can be judicially enforced as the Common Law, or even  Statutory Law.So, look out when you buy your next window fan;  who knows what might happen next.

The article, "Customary Law," shows that an informal, but potentially powerful form of law is in fact Customary Law.
