The World's stupidest laws!
    #1111592 - 12/04/02 10:55 PM (14 years, 2 days ago)

There are an awful lot of dumb laws out there. For example:

In England, anal sex is prohibited.
In Switzerland, you may not hang your clothes out to dry on Sunday.
In France, no pig may be called Napoleon.
In Canada, it is illegal to pretend to practice witchcraft.

Anyone have any other good examples?

In Alberta Canada, By Law, any criminal being released from jail is legally entitled to a Free gun and steed to ride out of town with.

But of course that isint used.. either that or the criminals dont know that.. lol

Stupid french.

It's illegal to pretend?  So actually doing it is okay?

In the US, persons may be placed in jail for up to five years for shooting a hole in a penny.
In the US, it is illegal to give free alcohol to Indians who live on reservations.
A US citizen can take possession of any foreign, uninhabited island, as long as it contains bird droppings.

I guess a lot of Indian reservations are really picky about alcohol(it is illegal on most reservations). I guess because there is such an epidemic of alcoholism among Native Americans.

England has some pretty dumb laws, a lot of them are very old:

-In London, taxis must carry a bale of hay and a sack of oats.
-Any boy under the age of 10 may not be allowed to view a naked mannequin.
-It is illegal to be drunk in a pub, bar or other licensed premises.
-It is legal for a male to urinate in public, as long it is on the rear wheel of his motor vehicle and his right hand is on the vehicle.
-In Chester you can only shoot a Welsh person with a bow and arrow inside the city walls and after midnight. However, in Hereford you may shoot a Welsh person with a longbow at any time except on Sunday with a longbow in the Cathedral Close.
-A bed may not be hung out of a window.
-All English males over the age 14 must carry out 2 or more hours of longbow practice a week supervised by the local clergy.
-Interfering with the mail (like opening someone else's letter) is classed as treason, and carries the death penalty.

Hmmm, check out the "dumb laws" in the Netherlands.  Only two are listed on that website:

1) It is legal to smoke pot, buy it, or have less than 5 grams with you.
2) Prostitution is legal but the prostitutes must pay taxes like any other business.

They don't seem dumb to me at all!  :grin:

Anal and Oral sex are unlawful in many states in the US as well.

Oh yeah, blowing up whales in Oklahoma is illegal.
