Anyone know any weird laws?

One I like a lot is that it is illegal to produce Stilton cheese in Stilton. (It falls outside of the allowed area)

The fictional concept of Time Travel is illegal in China, but not the actual thing. So if a Time Machine was actually created, it would be perfectly legal.

Also in China, it's apparently illegal to be reincarnated without getting permission from the government. Looks like we know China's main religion.

In Providence, Rhode Island, you may not sell toothpaste and a toothbrush to the same customer on a Sunday. What?

Silly String is illegal in Los Angelas.

Fish bowls are illegal in Monza, Italy.

The use of excuses by City Officials in Megion, Singapore is illegal. So they cannot say "I don't know," "It's lunch time," "It's not my job" and "It's impossible" amongst a list of more than two dozen other phrases

Greece has, apparently, banned all Video Games.

and Finally, Russia has banned all emos, and the concept of being emo.

Maybe the fact that Singapore bans the sale of chewing gum would be weird to the rest of the world, but it isn't here.

it probably costs more to clean up then the profits of sales.
only thing it's good for is taste. and taste is on allot of other stuff aswell.

In Massachusetts it is illegal to go to bed without bathing, however, in the same state, law prohibits bathing on Sundays.

In Tuscan women may not wear pants.
(This, on a sidenote, was also the case in Paris, France, up until recently when they officially changed the law)

English law states that an individual wearing a full suit of armor is not permitted to enter the House of Parliament.

It is on the books in China that a person must be intelligent to go to college.
