Off with her head!

Trust the government to come to your rescue and put a smile on your face when you feel down in the dump.

I have not been able to look at another shop window display the same way again after reading this.

This got me thinking.

Yes it does happen.

Who makes these laws? I mean, what is the provocation behind this? Is the society a little safer due to this? It also makes you wonder about the person who is 'bothered' when he sees a plastic female figure in underwear. But to be fair, men are also known to get turned on by pictures of female figures. Go figure.

So as a mean to entertain you, I decided to find out some more of these strange laws. Yeah. Absolutely jobless.

In Virginia,USA, chickens must lay their eggs between 8am and 4pm.

In UK , a pregnant woman can legally urinate anywhere she wants, including if she requests, in a policeman's hat.

In Hong Kong, a woman can kill her husband if he has cheated on her. She must use her bare hand though. This isn't a requirement for the man's lover, who can be killed by any means necessary.

In Samoa, it is illegal to forget your wife's birthday.

Portugal makes it illegal to pee in the ocean

In South Carolina unmarried women are not allowed to buy edible panties.

In Singapore chewing gum is illegal

In Israel, you could be prosecuted for picking your nose on Sunday.

In Sweden it is illegal to use the services of a prostitute. Prostitution is legal though

In Thailand, it is illegal to leave your house without your underwear on.

In Lebanon, If a man is caught having sex with a male animal then the penalty is death- sex with a female animal is ok

In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman’s genitals but is forbidden from looking directly at them during the examination; he may only see their reflection in a mirror.

In Indonesia, the penalty for masturbation is decapitation.

So I guess as long as society exist we can be assured of a good laugh.

Even if it will get us jailed or worse, decapitated.

@sankoobaba: actually to be fair, most of these are what is called the invisible laws...those are laws that has lost its relevance and does not get pulled up in the court of law, so no one has bothered to amend it...after all law is made for the people not the other way round..

@xh: creative? most of the jokers in power are just creative about making the life of the people they are supposed to protect miserable.

@jon : me too buddy, me too.

@wanna be: refer the response to sankoobaba...most of the others atleast have that excuse.

Tys, a long time ago, you had given me advice on my dilemma about my birth father. I did reach out and was ignored. But I wanted to say Thank you to you for giving me support and courage :)

Holy shit. Remind me never to visit Indonesia... I can't visit Singapore either. I love gum.

I wish i'd have seen some preggo's when I was in the UK. I'd have loved to dare her to pee in an officer's hat. They have these really funny tall hats there.

Samoa's got it goin on.

@ TYS

This is good one.

You know it's illegal to eat mince pies on christmas day in uk.

Trade man cannot do his job on christmasday either, he can be do different trade.

You are not allowed to shout taxi on christmas day.

You are not allowed to kiss a women on church doorstep on sunday, but any other day is ok, but if you are a man it's ok to kiss a man.

Not teaching your son archery is an offence in UK.

All these laws are still valid and you can be sent down for it if cops don't like you.

HARRY

BTW these laws are also in sods law book and they are real, even today.
