Top 10 Weirdest Laws

Rules are an everyday part of life and some rules are more important than other and therefore become laws. Most laws are easy to follow and even though we don't always agree with them as a society we follow them anyway, well most of us do.

Here are some of the craziest laws in the world some of which I have a hard time believing myself.

  • It is illegal to die in the Houses of Parliament.
  • In Ohio, it is against state law to get a fish drunk.
  • In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death.
  • In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her husband, and the first time this happens her mother must be in the room to witness the act.
  • North Carolina has made it illegal to swear in front of dead people.
  • In Victoria Australia after mid day on Sunday, it's illegal to wear pink hot pants.
  • In the days of Sparta, if you were male you legally had to consume 2 pounds of meat a day. (Not so Bad)
  • Due to lack of pants, Donald Duck cartoons were banned in Finland.
  • In England, in 1837, if a man kissed a woman against her will, she could legally bit off his nose.
  • There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege of having sex for the first time. Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry. (I couldn't think of a better law to follow myself)

There are some crazy laws out there but I would imagine that at some point or another they would seem like sensible laws to have around so the question I have for you is:

 What current law do you think will be looked upon in years to come as been insanely stupid?
