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)

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.

In the city of Nome, Alaska, one may not roam the city with a bow and arrows, or airguns, or slingshots

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.

It's considered trespassing because they're private property. I think it's completely legal over public waterways, but at your own risk.

In North Carolina it's illegal to have elephants plow cotton fields.
In Missouri it's illegal to get elephants drunk.
And in Florida if you tie an elephant to a parking meter, you have to pay for it the way you would a normal car. It's illegal to have sex with a porcupine in Florida. Also in Florida men are not allowed to be seen in public in a strapless dress.
I fully support that last one...

Many American states have banned gay marriage.

They want everyone to be the same. Honestly, do you ever go through a post before sending it in?

What if I possess a bull? Would that change anything? Why don't you check the weirdest laws, written in the Hammurabi's Code?
