World’s Strangest Laws

Posted in Fun Stuff, Internet at 9:13 pm by anonymous

I was reading up the news and found this irony list of ridiculous silly laws. lol.

Here are my favourites:

  • Donald Duck comics were once banned in Finland because he never wore pants.
  • In England, if someone caught while he was trying to commit suicide they will punished with death sentence.
  • In Washington, USA, it is still an offence to pretend that you have rich parents.
  • In St. Louis, Missouri, USA, it is still illegal for firemen to rescue women who are still in their nightdresses.
  • In Turkey, during the 16th and 17th centuries, it was illegal to drink coffee and anyone caught doing so was sentenced to death.
  • To make ancient Sparta men brave, they were required by law to eat at least two pounds of meat every day.
  • In Iowa, USA, it is against the law to kiss for more than five minutes.
  • In Burma it is illegal to get internet access. If a person is found in possession of a modem he can be imprisoned.
  • In Singapore it is illegal for a person to walk around the house naked and not flushing the toilet. Also a person can be executed if they are found in possession of more than 200g of cannabis resin. Oral sex is banned unless it is used only during foreplay and if a person is caught littering the streets he is forced to make an appearance on TV with a bib around his neck saying “I’m a litterer.”
  • In Conorsville, Wisconsin, USA, it is illegal for a man to fire a gun while his wife is having an orgasm.
