The World's Craziest Laws

You may be fined for reading the message in this picture 
1. In France, it is forbidden to call a pig Napoleon (but it's perfectly ok to chop a pig up and feast on it)
2. In Denmark you're not allowed to start a car if someone is under the vehicle (This does not apply if someone is in front/behind the car)
3. In Ohio, it is against state law to get a fish drunk (but it's okay to kill a fish and feed it to your cat)
4. Only In America! - In Arkansas, a man is legally allowed to beat his wife only once a month (Speechless! ... This is just wrong! Especially in a world where we can't even call pigs Napoleon)

5. In the UK, a pregnant woman can legally relieve herself anywhere she wants – even in a policeman’s helmet (Super! I would love to try this out lol)

6. In Vermont, women must obtain written permission from their husbands to wear false teeth (Unlucky if you're married to Hitler hahaha)

7. In Saudi Arabia, it is forbidden for a woman to drive a car. (Nice! Their women must live like queens *day dreaming*)

8. In England, all men over the age of 14 must carry out two hours of longbow practice a day (Yawn)

9. In Texas, if you are going to commit a crime, you legally have to give 24 hours notice to the police (Really? So will you be arrested before/after committing the crime?)

10. In Baltimore, Maryland, taking a lion to the cinema is illegal (Is this because they roar? Tigers are better movie buddies anyway)

11. In Bahrain, it is illegal for a male doctor to look at a woman’s genitals at an examination. “How can he examine her then?”, I hear you ask. Well, he can only look at her private bits in a mirror (No words!)

12. In Cannes, France, wearing a Jerry Lewis mask is illegal (Err... Okay)

13. In Switzerland flushing the toilet after 10p.m where the person lives in an apartment is illegal (This is ludicrous and disgusting! Eeww)

14. In Victoria, Australia, it is illegal to wear pink hot pants after midday on a Sunday (I wonder what inspired this law - Did Jordan wear pink hot pants in Australia when she was married to Peter Andre? Lol)

15. If you were posting a letter in England and by accident put the stamp (with the picture of the Queen) up side-down, you’ll be committing an act of treason (Does this count if one is partially blind or in a hurry?)

While this post was good for laughs, it is extremely important that you check if these laws are correct, before you practice ANY of them - Else, you might be getting yourself in trouble.
